I was wondering around my usual haunt at lunchtime today and looked up and thought how spectacular the view was. It took a few moments for the right neurons to fire before I took out my camera and started shooting.
I’ll share my DSLR photos soon. In the meantime, here is a preview.
Lately, tall buildings fascinate me and I have been photographing them more. I make a point of going out during my lunchtime to walk around and take a breather from the office. I usually wind up walking around Moshe Schnitzer Square in Ramat Gan, near Tel Aviv.
There are a number of tall buildings in the area and I love how the light reflects off the buildings onto each other and the area around them at different times of the day.
Lately I seem to be taking more photos of these buildings on sunny days. The colours of the reflections can be mesmerising, particularly because these buildings often have glassy facades.
I also love trying to capture different perspectives of the buildings themselves, even though I am somewhat limited from my ground level vantage point. The Square also hosts quite a variety of building styles in close proximity and the contrasts can be pretty interesting too.
I turned my camera to another set of buildings I hadn’t paid much attention to previously. For some reason, they just really stood out to me against the cold, winter sky.
Isn’t it weird how you have that experience of vertigo looking up at a really tall building from the ground?
I sat beneath this building and had my lunch today and couldn’t quite shake this feeling. When I turned to take these photos, I felt like I was about to fall. Our bodies have really interesting responses to things in our physical environment!
