This week’s assignment is about lines. While I did go on a new photo shoot to capture what the assignment embodies, I actually choose to post a series of pictures from a previous photo session. Hopefully my sis won’t get mad at me. Eeek. 🙂
These pictures were, however, taken with my new camera. And, when I took them, on a certain level I was thinking about lines as in a border between public and private. When you live in a city (and a small apartment/house) so much of your life happens in the public realm. The door or gate to your home marks the border/line between your public and private worlds. Really, I swear…
Then reflecting back on a more literally level, there are actually a lot of lines in each photo. Happy coincidences should get documented, right?!
There was something alluring about this apartment building. It’s right on the main drag when you’re walking to the weekly, outdoor Nachlat Binyamin artist’s market that is a popular destination for visitors in Tel Aviv, Israel. We’ve gone so many times at this point that it’s a challenge to find new gems. We found one though: fabric artist, Amnon Lipkin (Brand: Pashut). His designs are quirky and clever. Read more about his hand-sewn designs here.
If I had the chance to take this over this week, I probably would have tried to include more of the front fence.
I absolutely love the façade of this city home. Weather-wise, I’m sure it’s fine that the front wall seems so thin, made up of only glass and metal. As a NYC/NJ city-dweller, something about it also makes me very uncomfortable and unsafe. It probably has to do with the fact I haven’t lived on ground level in over 20 years at this point. My comfort level or line, still likes my front door to face an indoor hallway.
What’s not to like about a bright red door, with many parallel and perpendicular straight and bent lines.
