It has been a while since we had a day out in tel aviv and as the girls are on holiday we decided to take the day off to have some fun. As always we began our day with breakfast. We started off in Shenkin - no plan to stick to -

The buildings in this area are just so beautiful - dilapidating but beautiful - of course the level of decay just adding to the beauty. You could spend the whole day looking up at the stunning details. There was once talk of restoring them but I see no changes in the last few years.
Unfortunately, Shelly still doesnt get why I spend so much of my time taking photos of structures without windows and peeling paint... but one day she will :)

And it has been years since we visited shuk hacarmel - a wonderful market always full of life, touching all of the senses.

we then walked round Kerem Hatemanim - the smells reminded Rami of his grandmothers house..

And back to Shenkin for some window shopping and ice-cream.


Despite the intense august heat, we had such a great day.
Our walk today was so inspirational, much food for thought and ideas for new work - i cant wait to start painting again.

    Such evocative photos to see today, J. One of the films I saw at the film festival featured Tel Aviv and I thought of you and your family.

    see you, g xx
