"At the Bakery"

@ ISO 800, f/4

44 Kedem st - Jaffa - Israel - May 2007

@ ISO 800, f/4

A few days ago I was wondering around in Aj'amy neighborhood in Jaffa, enjoying the quiet of the streets and allies, savoring the old houses and the new luxurious and prestige complexes, intermixed together with such a vivid contrast that one can not believe how this mix can happen.

I was thirsty, and I stopped in front of a little bakery - turns out that the friendly owner, Abraham, and his worker, Tamer, invited me to see the bakery from inside and take some pictures (which I did, of course). I had so much fun walking there, taking pictures and see how they work, in unison...

More to come...

"Green-eyed Smile"

Abulafia Bakery - Jaffa - Israel - May 2007
@ ISO 100, f/2.2

I went out shooting this morning at Jaffa's street and upon finishing, I was passing by Abulafia's famous bakery sitting on Yeffet st. I wanted to take some shots from inside, but had been asked to coordinate any shooting with an authoritative figure.
While discussing these issues with one of the managers, I notice that his son, Haham Nazahir has such bright and unique eyes, and offered to shoot his portrait.
More on this Jaffa visit soon...

"Birthday cake"

Givaataim - Israel -March 2007
Kodak Gold 200
Celebrating the 3rd birthday of my Nephew, Adar (the leaning boy at the center of the frame) - It's amazing how the character of those small ones evolve and takes shape even when all are under the same roof and parental care...
