Of all the attractions people visit Orlando for, the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral in eastern Florida an hour away was the one I was looking forward to the most. I visited Disney World, Wet-n-Wild and a few of the other Orlando attractions back in 1989 while I was in sixth grade staying in […]

Ripley's Believe It or Not Orlando Florida (26)

Orlando has its fair share of tourist traps but as far as what I’ve seen Ripley’s Believe It or Not is probably the worst of them all. Aiming low, it aims to shock you with a bit of Guinness world of records style combined with what can only be described as a freak show. Ripley, […]

Machne Yehuda - Baal-Basta-001

From an ordinary loud and dirty wet market to a posh shopping areas filled with exotic restaurants, coffee shops, bars, pubs, tons of cool little shops that sell just about everything, and – ofcourse – an upscale version of […]

Knesset - Jerusalem (10)

Though over the years I’ve become somewhat cynical and critical of what takes place inside those walls, the visually-challenged Israeli Legislator building has – also – been part of my childhood background scenery.

The Israel Museum in Jerusalem is my home museum. Located only ~15 minutes walk from my parents’ house in Rehavia, down Ramban street and across the Monastery valley, it has always been part of the very familiar view I’ve come across many times while walking my dog or wondering around the neighborhood. Perhaps since it […]

Trying to bring contemporary art to public space in Hong Kong the Mobile M+ Inflation exhibition that closed this week at the West Kowloon Cultural District setup mind provoking floats that – combined with the gloomy Hong Kong weather – provided for extremely bizarre and somewhat apocalyptic scenes.   Here’s a sample of …

Promised myself I wouldn’t, and I almost made it. Almost. But last week when I was visiting the Hong Kong Culture Centre and walked the Avenue of Stars I saw it. Surrounded by hundreds of enthusiastic Hong Kong camera fanatics shooting this PR stunt ducky from all directions, I decided to let go and photograph […]
