    This picture was not easy to take. I had to stand on a narrow wall while ballancing myself against a barbed wire fence holding the camera before me as I tried to avoid tumbling into the courtyard bellow. Hope the result justified the effort... I could not get at this site from any other angle.

    Whoa :shock:
    Glad to see that you are here to tell the story!

    At first I thought: the colours! Those colours. Sooooooooooooo strong. Too strong?

    I look and look and begin to feel that they maybe WERE this intense?
    Given the light you had and the country you are in ... and assuming that the roof of the building behind this dilapidated one got new roof tiles only recently?

    It is for this light and the intensity of the colours that in centuries ago artists would go to the Mediterranean Sea (countries around there) to live and paint!

    The colors are nice....maybe a bit too much saturation, but not overboard. I wish the tree in front was not there.

    Thanks LaFoto
    The use of color saturation seems to be a recurring issue in many of my photographs. I suppose it is largely a matter of perception. I have found that different computer screens create wide variances in perceived picture quality, coloring and so forth. (And as a result I went out and bought a new screen).

    I have slightly saturated the colors although they are naturaly fairly intense. At least they were on that particular day considering the lighting conditions.

    Thank you ccd333. I find that the tree adds to the general feel of "neglect" that surrounds the place.

    Thanks Moxi, I appreciate the input. I was standing on a wall that extends from the one that you are refering to. Looking at it now, it seems like a pretty silly thing to do... and at my age!!!

    Funny.
    I'm visiting my sister today in 'Zichron', and went with her to get icecream just next to these houses in your photo.

    Yes indeed!! This is my favorite ice cream spot in 'Zichron' (probably the best ice cream in all of Israel), just up the road from where I live. The house in the picture is just bellow the parking lot around the corner from it.
