Nahlat Binyamin area near the Carmel shuk (market). This is a very trendy area that comes alive on Fridays when there is a flea market at Nahlat Binyamin. There are lots of great stores and restaurants down this road.

Red Tree Flowers

A couple of days ago I showed you photos of a red tree. Here are the tree's flowers. They're beautiful, like flames. Now does anyone know what kind of tree this is? I really would like to know.

Bright Red Trees

Click to enlarge

These trees are all over Tel Aviv and have a beautiful red/orange flower. Like a flame. If anyone knows what kind of tree it is I'd be glad to hear. I really love this tree.

This is a photo scene taken under a red tree. I love the colour of the petals against the rocks.

How the Other Half Live

Here's a photo of a very nice house in my neighbourhood. Not many houses look like this in Israel, I can assure you. This one's really special.

Tree - Close Up

For those of you who requested it, this is a close up of yesterday's "tree" photo. And if you click on the photo you can enlarge it even more.

Click on photo to enlarge

At first glance this just looks like a nice sculpture of a tree in front of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. But enlarge the photo, zoom in and have a closer look. The tree is made up of people. This is art by Zadok Ben-David.

Bridge over Troubled Water

This photo makes me think of that song by Simon and Garfunkel and now I can't get it out of my head! :-) There is actually no water under this bridge. It is a bridge over the Tel Aviv Performing Arts Center's car park - but that doesn't have the same ring to it.
