No Bathing

This is my favorite shot from last Saturday's photowalk. I like it's edgy, gritty feel, and the fact that the signs were obviously swiped from the beach a few blocks away and put into the window of this old back alley building on the far side of Tel Aviv's Carmel Market.

Many more windows, most containing glass rather than old plywood I'd venture to say, can be found over at Window Views. Stop by and check it out.

Very cool. I like taking pictures of edgy, gritty things too.

I usually feel pretty gritty if I don't bathe too. I tell ya, if I were ever to visit there I'd need a whole lotta CF cards. Big ones. You get some of the coolest shots!

Ha! Bli boosha. Ganavim!

Jen said...

Great photo - you'd think that they would have at least turned the signs around so that the words weren't visable....But then, if they had, you wouldn't have been able to take such a great shot!

Ha-ha-ha - great find! I know the feeling :) Try driving in Bulgaria - all the signs are gone :) made me smile - big smile!

Gritty, back alley, shuttered! Hey! At least the sign is serving a better purpose, yes? Does anyone really pay attention to the "No swimming" ones, anyway? Nice to recycle, here...

Really [re your comment]? I didn't even know there was a chicken song until now. Think I'm getting more and more out of touch with all things American.
