Moscow Letovers

A total of 3852 photos were taken by me in Moscow! That is just… wow! Though I shared the best of these photos in a series of posts, there are a few more photos I’d like to share here. This is the Tsoi Wall, located on Arbat street. (Viktor Tsoi was the vocalist of Russian…

Mother Russia Vol. 6 : The Kremlin

Mother Russia Vol.4 : Moscow Metro

On my first day here, I got a small taste of Moscow, inluding the Kremlin, a small glimpse of Moscow City, and the metro. The metro definitely deserved it’s own post (just like Moscow City does) and today, I finally had the chance to go on a stroll around the metro. Nikon D7100, NIKKOR 50mm…

Mother Russia Vol.3 : Night Over Moscow

One of the first things I’ve noticed about Moscow when driving from the airport into the city was the beautiful lighting. The buildings, the streets, the skyscrapers.. Are all beautifully lit. Something that I should definitely take photos of. Tonight, I had a chance to go out for a short drive. I grabbed my camera and…

Mother Russia Vol.1 : First Impressions

Moscow so far.. Well, it’s goddamn beautiful! (800 shots taken on my first day, that’s how beautiful it is!) The weather is rather cold, about 15C (kind like the Israeli winter), and it’s cloudy. I absolutely love shooting when it’s cloudy, since the light is much softer, and the photos turn out beautiful. Plus it’s…

Tales of the Carmel Market

  I don’t think I know anyone in Israel that didn’t spend some (or most) of their time in Dizengoff center, King George street and the Carmel Market as teenagers. Teenagers from across the country come there to meet up with friends, go shopping or just spend their time there. Even “Center Kids” (that’s how we…

Port of Jaffa

If you go south on Tel Aviv’shore, you’ll reach old Jaffa. Beautiful old buildings and mosques, nice restraunts (If you ever visit Israel, be sure you go there!) and the old port. The port is very small and not used for any commercial purposes (for that, we Haifa’s, Ashdod’s and Eilat’s ports). I visited the port…
