Typical pedestrian road in Sarona-Colony and one WS with an old house from the Templar era that now is restored – but kept original contour-lines and style.
From Wikipedia:
Sarona was a German Templer colony established in Ottoman Syria in 1871. Sarona is now a neighborhood of Tel Aviv.
It was one of the earliest modern villages established by Europeans in Ottoman Palestine. In July 1941, the British Mandate authorities deported 188 residents of Sarona, who were considered hard-core Nazi sympathizers.
Restoration project:
Since 2003, the Tel Aviv municipality has been working to preserve and restore Sarona. Restaurants, Café's, food market and boutiques hosted in the old houses.

Location on the map: 32.0725, 34.7881 .
RAW, main picture is F8.0, 1/60, ISO100, spot.
Enhanced contrast by just a bit to off-set strong daylight.

Hello Ike,

How refreshing to have a pedestrianised street, especially in a city.
It looks like a relaxing experience to walk this street and how exciting to have a neighbourhood which is trying to recreate cafes and food from a previous era. That is a great way in which to encourage tourism!
You have given us two excellent shots; one of the area and one of the Templar building.
The lighting and the details have been well handled.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Hello Ike,
Here are two splendid photos from this old colony. In the main entry, I like your POV taking advantage of the leading lines the walkway generates. 👍

Hey Ike,
A really lovely photo of this street, I really like the calm mood with the people walking up and down the road. The houses and trees frame the street very nicely on both sides. Very well done.

Hello Ike,
Interesting view of typical pedestrian road in Sarona-Colony.
The picture in the workshop is also very good.
Very attractive colours and nice composition.
Good work, fine presentation.

Dobro vece.
Lep pogled i trenutak, interesantan i dobar tekst ...
Dobar rad sa lepom fotografijom u radionici, lepo pokazano, dobra perspektiva i kontrast, lepe boje, lepo uhvacen trenutak sa prolaznicima.
Lepa ulica sa drvecem i kuce, lepo mesto za setnju.
Zelim vam lepu i mirnu noc, sve najbolje.

Ciao Ike
mi piace osservare la gente che cammina, lo scenario cambia continuamente e si ha modo di riflettere e osservare i vari comportamenti.
Bella strada, è sicuramente piacevole passeggiare qui.

Hi Ike,

The presence of the people walking is adding life to the scene. The length of the street is creating depth. The point of view is showing the details of the trees and of the houses. Have a nice day.

quelle belle iamge et compo quelle rue et vue sueprbe avec ces personnage cette végétation ces allées des arbres et les drapeaux flottant fantastique ensemble.
Bravo et amitié

Fine street scene, an enjoyable place to walk as I see, with rich vegetation. Well taken.


Hello Ike,
This view has something timeless in my eyes. Maybe it is because everything looks so neat and clean that it seems to be from decades ago. It looks so quiet and peaceful and everyone is well dressed. Like a white small town in the US in the 1950's, or an architect's vision of an ideal society. The neatness of your composition is of course a contributing factor.
Kind regards,

Hello Ike,
Looks a very pleasant street for an afternoon stroll. The repeating lamps create depth and perspective, the people animate the scene and contribute to the mood. The whole is pleasantly illuminated with well rendered colours and detailing.

Hello Ike,

Good perspective and sharpness with the converging dual sides of the leafy street leading the eye inexorably towards the back. The people animate the scene and provide scale. Tfs!

Hello Ike,

good image of this street, I like the daily scene you captured with the people walking by in a sunny day, I like the trees we can see here also, well done,

Best regards,

Hi Ike

quite photogenic, and that house is great - too bad we can't see interior scenes. this place looks very warm and inviting, relaxing and peaceful, it comes across well in your shot

Hello Ike,

I like your additional picture with the typical house.
This is old architecture, but for me the most beautiful.
Of course your street view is a nice daily life image.
You create depth and perspective too.
Sharpness and clarity are real amazing.
Very well done, TFS.

Kindest regards,

Hello, Ike.
A nice perspective of this pedestrian street, where we see nice chalets and quite wooded, a quiet area and I think with a medium-high standard of living.
A nice color in very effective tones.
Good management of brightness and sharpness.
Magnificent image I like it.
All the best and have a good day.

Hello Ike, good picture of this interesting scene of life in the interesting street, very well captured in this interesting image, with good sharpness, depth, light, color and quality. A great job perfectly done, my congratulations, my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.

Good night and happy weekend.
All the best from the south of Spain.

Hi Ike,
lovely pedestrian promenade. People add a nice touch, the vegetation quite exotic.
I like the presence of the national flags, they always add an extra confirmation of the location.
Very relaxing feeling seeing these people strolling along.
Charming reportage,
