23 Rothschild blvd, is the Eliyahu Golomb house.

From Wikipedia:
Eliyahu Golomb (2 March 1893 – 11 June 1945) was the leader of the Jewish defense effort in Mandate Palestine and chief architect of the Haganah, the military organization for defense between 1920 and 1948.
Here is a link to a web-page which describes the museum and history of the house.

A cell-phone pictures (one WS which has a slightly diff. POV from one minute before the main pic.) taken at around 07:00 am on my way to work. There is a natural slope – the house is horizontally balanced.

Location on the map: 32.0634, 34.7721 .

Hello Ike,
A beautiful photo of this house built on the slope. The light is very pleasant and adds a nice and warm hue to the photo. All the palm trees and the overhanging leaves are very well included in the foreground.

This is a nicely situated building in an attractive architectural style. The photo is very well framed by trees and branches and the morning light gives the view a beautiful tone.

Good work with nice photos in the workshop, beautifully shown, good contrast, nice colors.
Nice trees and facades of the house, beautiful Golomb House.
I wish you a nice and peaceful night, all the best, good luck.

Hello, Ike.
No doubt a beautiful house, with an original structure, the trees and palm trees of the garden add a lot of charm, ideal those branches of trees that semi-cover the sky.
Sharpness, lighting, color and magnificent composition; all are perfectly realized factors.
Well done. I like it.
Have a nice day. Greetings.

Hi Ike,

The trees are framing well the house. The point of view is showing the details of the house. The light is giving nice tints to the colours. Have a nice day.

Hello Ike,

A good upward pov on the leafy facade o the historic old building, with the gaps between the trees and palms allowing us a a tantalising glimpse of the #23 entrance and 2 upper floors. Tfs!

Hello Ike,
Interesting view of this house.
Perfectly exposed with superb colours and good sharpness.
Good work, fine presentation

Hello Ike,
Trees and plants in the garden, another tree behind the building and overhanging leaves. This all creates a great setting for the Golomb House and a very beautiful frame for your pictures.
A beautiful light good in contrast with the darker spots in the shade.
Best regards, Paul

Hello Ike,
Mr. Golomb seems to have died young, at the age of 52, did he die in battle? It's a pity that he did not see Israel's independence.

Bonjour, cher Ike,
Que restent-ils aux gros appareils photographiques à voir le résultat obtenu par un smartphone.
Cela dit, le smartphone est de qualité !
Le résultat est bien mis en valeur. Je regarde avec intérêt l'architecture et l'environnement fort agréable !

Hi Ike,
Interesting historic house, well framed, good result with the pleasant light, good note too, tfs.

Hello Ike, Nice historical house. As I saw in Google, Golomb was born in Wolkowysk in Belarus (earlier in Poland). So maybe his name was Gołąb, what means pigeon. Nice building and wonderful palms.

Kind regards MAlgo

Hello Ike,

The two photographs are very similar but I agree with your main post choice as this one uses the f/g tree more effectively and it also seems to have a better depth of colour.
The surrounding garden does produce a lovely ambience to the warm coloured house but, symbolically, it is also peeping warily at the outside, reflective of the person who used to live there.

Thank you for sharing this,
Bev :-)

Hello Ike,

Your additional picture is absolutely not bad, also a nice picture.
The frontage behind the nice trees makes your image fantastic.
Composition and presentation are superb.
Very well done, TFS.

Best regards,

Bonjour Ike,

Une bien jolie maison, maintenant transformée en musée. Elle est très proche de ses voisines et ses épaules sont comme entrées vers l'intérieur. La contre plongée lui donne de l'ampleur.



Hi Ike,
lovely house in amazing setting so full of vegetation including the photogenic palm trees!
I like as well as usually the inscription in your alphabet. It adds another exotic touch to the composition. Also nice to have the framing with tree branches from above.
You have quite nice area to walk along on the way to work!
Have a great weekend,

  • Great

Ola Ike
Intéressante maison historique, bel effet de lumière, superbe qualité depuis le smartphone
Bonne soirée

Ciao Ike
una architettura molto particolare che sembra fatta per essere un museo, per cui la scelta mi sembra ottima.
Buona condivisione, molto interessante.

Hello, Ike!

Very nice view of this beautiful house with the natural frame formed by the vegetation! The light has been very well managed and the colors are beautiful! Very good job!
