Just a balcony with many elements of great charm, to my taste.
Spotted while parking on a side street in Tel-Aviv.
High-noon time, so I reckon parts are overexposed.

Location on map: 32.0926, 34.7857

looks like the people of this house wanted a small part of nature near their home and created this marvelous small artistic garden. I liked the photo, nice details and good quality.



Hello Ike,
There is some evidence of over-exposure, but on the whole you have managed the harsh light very well. The vegetation brings a certain charm to an otherwise ordinary balcony and no doubt helps provide some shade for the owner. Someone with evident green fingers.

Ike, many plants and decorations on that balcony in Tel aviv, good exposition and light, very neat picture, good daily life report, enjoy your We

Hi Ike
I feel the combination of potted plants decorating the characterful balcony of this building make it even more graceful. A fine crop, clarity is adequate with good sharpness filled by the wonderful shades, shadows and well saturated colours. An intriguing capture. Well done shot, Congrats
Best regards

Hi Ike,
Well found and cropped close-up image of this really beautiful balcony. Indeed, the noon light was strong and I understand why some details are overexposed here. Anyway, it's still interesting subject. Thanks for sharing!

Have a nice afternoon!

Hello Ike,
I wish all the people in your part of the world could feel tranquil, safe and creative to express their appreciation of life and beauty like the inhabitants of this apartment. This image is very lovely, not only for the impressive, dense arrangement of the greenery, but also for the fine atmosphere, which you managed to capture superbly. The "melody makers" hanging from the balcony are very lovely too. I like very much the mysterious and elegant window and the mild tones all over. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, take care,

Hi Ike,

A beautiful little find...isn't it great when you run across something like this? Sometimes it's simply a matter of luck. :) I wouldn't worry anything about the exposure, it truly is the charm and details that are the winner. I can't tell if it's real or not...but there appears to be a bird almost right in the middle of the frame, which also makes for a fun addition to this lovely scene. Not too many of them around me right now, the dogs like to chase them off. :) Hope all has been safe, the situation is always the lead news story. Hoping for the best, and quickest resolution. Take good care.

Friendly wishes,


Ciao Ike
sicuramente si tratta di un balcone molto originale e vivace.
Sono veramente molti i dettagli da osservare, hai avuto un ottimo occhio.

Hi Ike,

The vegetation is helping to frame the balcony. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the balcony. The light is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.

Shalom Ike. Someone definitely has "green fingers' and I think with all the wind chimes is attempting to lure the forest ferries to visit or maybe the Dove of Peace. Charming concentration of greenery. Best wishes. Klaudio.

Hello Ike,
It is good to see you posting again. You could name this "The Hanging Balcony of Tel-Aviv" (inspired by the hanging Gardens of Babylon). We see all kinds of things hanging from it, plants, wind chimes, bells. Well spotted!

Hello Ike, Nice balcony indeed. How many element are there. And in small wind there is sound from these bells. Many nice flowers. And what about the pigeon? Is it real or just decoration? Nice lamp and its shadow. Simple picture but charming. Little paradise.
Take care, I hope you are OK.

Hello Ike,

This is a wonderful balcony with all these nice flowers.
This in contrast with the rockets that fall on Israel.
Incredible that Hamas not accepted peace in the area.
Sharpness and clarity are perfect.
Excellent composition and nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice Sunday,

Hello Ike.
Very good POV, this lovely balcony, certainly looks like a hanging garden with a variety of plants, the gallery with its curtains give a cozy interior.
Excellent resolution and very good focus.
Very good job.
Enjoy a Happy Sunday.
Best wishes.

Hello Ike,
This is a pleasant shot of the balcony and plants. There is storm evidence of overexposure on the right side of the photo but the main subject area is fine. The photo has nice sharpness and detail.

Hi Ike,
I calla it beautiful window garden. People can be very creative to use a small place for making a nice green garden. Nice view up, excellent crop. The right side is slightly overexposed but this is not very much disturbing the overall quality of this nice photo.
Very well done.
P.s. Sorry for my slow response, but my access to internet is not very regular during my travelling.

Ciao Ike, lovely composition with original balcony, wonderful colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Ike,

Good shadow detail and a cooling, calming effect of the greenery and shadows. I like the little stone bird and cat. The hanging cactus plants add interest. Good sharpness and colour saturation. Nice natural repetition. Tfs!

Hello dear Ike,
Nice capture of this beautiful balcony with many interesting plants.
I know some of them but there are also many plants which are most probably quite typical for the region and belong to the family of cactusses.
TFS and bes regards

Hi Ike,
Very lovely balcony. l like green walls and this is almost a green wall.
The lights and colours are beautiful too.

Howdy Ike,

Interesting balcony with a mob of potted plants making for a jungle, and a few wind chimes for music. Good job to make do with a small space creating this nature refuge.

Thanks for sharing,

Bonjour, cher Ike,
Végétation luxuriante assure un décor de toute beauté à ce balcon.
Idée photographique très originale.

Hello Ike,

Very nice and soothing view of an arcade in Tel-Aviv, well decorated by the plant and you shoot it perfectly from a good position, good composition and contrast also, slightly over exposed at the right side of the frame but it did not cut down its beauty.

warm regards and have a nice weekend,
