Pictures In The City

Meetingpoint 

I like to take pictures where people who don't know each other meet and where the lines of the houses and trees absorb the meeting point as a whole. Lines are often a subject in my photos.

Shipps That Pass In The Night

Ships passing at night

It is often said of people who meet for a brief but intense moment and then part, never to see each other again. These people are like ships that greet each other with flashing lights and then sail into the night. The lines in the building seem to convey the same message.
One in the building, but flared out in different directions

The Lonely Cyclist

Maybe she has big plans and dreams of a bright future. She's moving and that's good. The house behind it offers us perspective, and shows, no matter how big we think of ourselves, we are so small...

Crossing Over 

Black and White.
One man has dark hair and is wearing a white shirt.
The other man has white hair and is wearing a dark coat.
The moment I saw them walking was also the moment I took the picture.
Two strangers meeting for a moment,
in the brief moment of passing each other.
Crossing the bridge together but each in the opposite direction. It's not white it's not black it's not black and white. Both have different colors in their hearts. 
Although their lifestory will have different color, this is a historical moment.
They both are dressed in black and white, crossing a black and white bridge, as if someone has directed it!

The World In Silence.

Today we remember the Yom HaShoah.
These houses are colorful in real life.

But I edited it to make it clear without

words that the world does not forget.

A lot of my people, went to Israel

after the war, because even for those

who survived, there was no place

except Israel.
 

 

 

Many of them were smuggled into the country by Aliyah Beth.
Aliyah Bet (Hebrew: עלייה ב', "Aliyah 'B'" - bet being the second letter of the Hebrew alphabet) was the code name given to illegal immigration by Jews, most of whom were refugees escaping from Nazi Germany, and later Holocaust survivors, which dramatically increased between 1939 and 1948.

With the establishment of the State of Israel in May 1948, Jewish displaced persons and refugees from Europe began streaming into the new sovereign state.

In modern-day Israel it has also been called by the Hebrew term Ha'apala (Hebrew: הַעְפָּלָה, "Ascension"). The Aliyah Bet is distinguished from the Aliyah Aleph ("Aliyah 'A'", Aleph being the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet) which refers to the limited Jewish immigration permitted by British authorities during the same period. The name Aliya B is also shortened name for Aliya Bilty Legalit (Hebrew: עלייה בלתי-לגאלית, "illegal immigration").
