On a gloomy day, I pulled my husband out of the house for this photo shoot session, in between the drops of rain. The wintry sky ensured a gray light.
The venue of this photo shoot- Tel Aviv’s largest public square – has strong emotional associations in the modern Israeli life. It is here that Prime Minister Yitchak Rabin was assassinated in November 1995, after addressing a massive Peace Rally .
From this square too, two year ago, Israel’s biggest ever demonstration took place, led by a group of previously unknown young people, protesting in favor of social justice.
The Tel Aviv Marathon with thousands of runners and participants from all over the world starts here (including me, believe it or not, though one time only!)
Here in front of Tel-Aviv City Hall, the annual book fair takes place. Dozens of publishing houses display their books of the passing years, offering them for sale at reduced prices. Thousands of adults, teenagers and young children browse through books and stock up for the coming year.
Can you believe that only some 60 years ago, at the time to the British mandate, this whole vibrant Tel-Aviv square was only an orange orchard?

Have a fabulous week!
