A short break from my Scotland photos:
I had in mind to show yet another mix of old and new architecture in the streets of Tel-Aviv, but as opened the thumbnail of this picture surprised to see a soap-bubbles flying above the street, one high and close, the other is lower and seems just above the pedestrians-crossing sign (There are several toys shops around this location, and a bubble-machine on the one entrance).
Anyway, a modern tower contrast the 1920th old facades, renovated nowadays on Herzl street,
32.0594, 34.7707 on the map.
A cell-phone picture, originally 1:1 aspect ratio set automatically by the iPhone.

It is a nice photo as an example of the mix of new and old architecture in Tel Aviv. But it gets a funny addition with the soap-bubble. Also, the title creates a kind of riddle. Everyone has to look carefully to find the bubble. Even apart from that it is an interesting photo, again of an amazingly good quality. The iPhone cameras are obviously getting professional.

Nice surprise bubble, it adds a nice touch of whimsy to the street, which has a great combination of old and new. The tall tower reminds me somewhat of the Met Life tower in New York. Beautiful blue sky too

The modern building looks as if it has been plucked out of the air by some giant hand and plonked down amongst these older, and in my mind, more attractive ones. Excellent technical quality. The soap bubble is a nice addition, like a large magnifying glass.

I'm not surprised that you didn't spot the bubble immediately, it's hard to see unless pointed out!
The street does show an interesting mixture of building styles and ages but all so very well captured in your photograph.
I like how well you have composed the shot, the biscuit coloured buildings making a natural guide to the tall, modern backstop.
The street does look in good order, probably as you mentioned, because they have been renovated.
My warm regards,

Interesting contrast new and old.
Good frame, colors and light.

Hi Ike,curious surprise in your composition,a good opportunity to give a different title to a classic pic like that,well done from Tel Aviv and with a great contrast between the brand new building and the houses of the last century on the right. Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Excellent and fascinating picture of mixed architecture. A good combination here. The bubble is a very pleasant bonus and makes the scene like a puzzle.
Ps. the first strijkijzer had to match in the flatiron style. The second was to give a good idea of the whole building.

Bonsoir, cher Ike,

The soap bubbles are adding interest to the scene. The point of view is showing the details of the old and new building. The good luminosity is making the colours to stand out. Have a nice day.

So, it's soap bubbles against the backdrop of old and new architecture. I love the way the Hebrew alphabet looks, I wish I could read it. What does the sign on the tower say? Could you give the English transliteration and then the translation? Thanks in advance,

I really like the part of the city you show us here. The encounter between the tall modern tower and the facades of the houses in the street leading to it is very nice. There are a lot of details to be discovered on these facades and the fine sunlight brought them all out nicely. Very well done.

Un carré bien composé sur ce quartier de Tel-Aviv. Le bleu de ce ciel crée le bon contraste avec les autres éléments de cette composition.
gervaso (16807) 2016-12-23 2:02
Very nice contrast of the architecture of the houses in the foreground with the modern building behind! Interesting the bubbles in this urban scene, captured with very good colors and sharpness! Beautiful job!
jhm (160809) 2016-12-23 4:36
Congratulations 1400 pictures is very much, and always pleasant to look at.
A very big contrast between the two different buildings.
Wonderful light and colours.
An excellent composition, nice presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.
I wish you nice holidays,
ourania (51103) 2016-12-23 4:42
I'm not certain I would have noticed the bubbles without your note, the colours and the details of the facades had gotten all of my attention. The bubbles make a playful addition as they are peacefully floating within the compact urban scenery. The light and the colours are very agreeable. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,
danos (103212) 2016-12-23 8:59
nice the view of the modern tower as contrast perfect with the old facades of the renovated facades of the buildings.The brilliant light of the day enhance even more the clarity as the details of the image.

Well-spotted and used photo opportunity with the soap bubbles adding yet another dimension to the image, like little lenses hanging in the air and changing perspective.
carlo62 (55628) 2016-12-24 15:12
originale colpo, la bolla non è immediatamente visibile, ma leggendo il titolo della foto diventa prioritario cercarla.
jemaflor (103577) 2016-12-25 9:15
Well composed your view with the contrast of architecture, pleasant sunny light well captured, tfs.
ChrisJ (118789) 2016-12-25 11:17
I see the soap bubbles. Good sharpness and well framed and composed using the parked cars as a border. Good color and saturation. The bg highrise adds scale. Tfs!

Hello Ike, Original capture with the soap bubbles. The bigger bubble is easy to see, it needs time to find the small one. They look like made from glass. Perfect round shape and strange that they have no colours. usually we see them distorted and with rainbow colours. besides nice view of the street with a mixture of traditional and modern architecture. I like most here the building with high windows, behind the bubbles.
Have a nice day
adramad (49918) 2016-12-26 13:15
A magnificent composition of this street, which has great contrasts in the style of its buildings, with these classic in the foreground and closing the perspective of the street, the tremendous skyscrapers.
Very good brightness and perfect sharpness.
Well done. I like.
You have a good day.
