PESO 2009 #020

We've just returned from a wonderful weekend in Haifa. It is not easy to choose which images to post here so that I decided I'd choose just one picture from every day of the trip.

We started with visiting Binyamina Winery in town of, well, yes, Binyamina.

On the next day an opportunity to photograph Haifa Sail Tower (if you come across more interesting link, I'd be glad to know) presented itself.

On our way back we passed through city of Zikhron Yakov. There we came across the Wine Cellar restaurant which is pretty amazing. Notably, one can order there some seriously expensive and probably just as seriously rare wines. And the meal we had was excellent as well.

PESO 2009 #019

My former co-worker's wife (it is quite simple relation, really ;-) ) makes something truly amazing. It looks alive and at least theoretically you can actually eat it. Have a look...

PESO 2009 #018

Last week a couple of folks from Russian Penta Club got together for a friendly meeting. Here are few shots from the occasion. We sure need to repeat the performance ;-).

PESO 2009 #017

I don't feel like posting my photographs this time. Instead I am going to post few photos made by my daughter. She took them, I processed them, but she was right by my side when I was working my way through LightRoom.

We had wonderful morning walk meeting few most friendly folks from Russian Penta Club. More on that later.

Here is yours truly. Galia designed the shot herself instructing me where I should stand and how. Notice my "I shoot, I don't test" PDML t-shirt :-).

Sorek Wadi is still one of our (it used to be mine, but I cannot keep saying that any more) favorite spots. Here Galia took a shot of the same scene that I've been trying to shoot for quite a long time.

PESO 2009 #016

A friend invited us for a walk up and down and across the Ashdod Sand Dune...

The person who's been driving the red Honda 4x4 car on the above shot drove by me to see the pictures on the screen of my camera. We had a friendly chat so that I think I am actually obliged to post a picture. Though that car was weaker than some others, the driver actually managed to climb all the way up the hill while people driving stronger cars failed.
