32.3 HILTON TEL-AVIV

I stayed at a hotel near to the Hilton hotel in Tel-Aviv and walked in the vicinity of the hotel where there is a wonderful park, with vistas over the Mediterranean. The hotel itself was not exactly the finest work of architecture but it was, in its repetitive elements, an opportunity for some interesting photographs. I found that the strong forms in the blazing sun were more successful in black and white. Since I only carried one lens on the trip I was shooting with a HC 100mm ƒ2.2 lens on a Hasselblad H6D-100 and this made it necessary to do some Photoshop work to correct perspective of the verticals. There was also a rather funky looking knock off of Antonio Gaudi – why not in a city dominated by the Bauhaus.
