Building Facade, Tel Aviv 2009

Click to enlarge
Another more vertigo-inducing view of this building. It had been hanging around in my archives for a while and seemed tailor-made for Carmi's Thematic Photographic, which is looking at buildings this week. It's been ages since I participated, I'm glad this week's theme gave me a way to jump back in.
I hope you're all enjoying a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend, or for the non-Americans out there a wonderful not-a-holiday-where-we-live weekend.
(Damn, this image looks really distorted shrunk down. View it full size for a much crisper view without any of those horrible wavy lines.)

Oh. I liked the view of this building that came up on my Google Reader. That reminded me of waves. This one is cool -- and definitely more vertigo inducing (not nice because it's 3:30 a.m. and I'm exhausted but can't sleep), but not quite as distinct.

Really, it makes me dizzy when scrolling up or down on this photo.
Also, it makes me so glad to live in a rural setting, flat on the earth.

Shabbat shalom.

Neat photo!! I'm going out today and see if I can get a decent shot of Camelback Mountain here in Phoenix. It's got so many different ways to see it.

Neat building, I take it it is an apartment building?

I read how you still celebrate Thanksgiving. Very interesting.

Its a dizzying design well snapped!

I absolutely love this picture! Great job.

It is indeed an apartment building (or rather condo, that's how it's done here), and a very exclusive one at that. While I don't like the fact of its existence - it's smack dab in the middle of a wonderfully quirky and very low-density neighborhood - I have to admit that it's a hell of a building.

I remember this one. Very cool.

Until this summer I've always lived very near cities with lots of tall buildings. Now, I'm amazed to live in one where there is just one and the bridge is taller.

The building is lovely, but the sky is what caught my eye.
I don't think I've ever seen one so vivid blue, certainly not in Ireland anyway!

Mojo said...

Yeah, eve I got a touch dizzy from this one. Glad to know it wasn't just me. Love the patterns in it though!

So mesmerizing and hypnotic. The best from the modern world, although I enjoyed the cactus above too.
