Fifty-Two Frames: Humor

No strawberries were harmed in the making of this photograph. Actually, that is 100% false. They tasted great. Week 10: Humor Mama? I actually did a bit of proactive composition work on this one.

I needed a sanity check and a little dose of big city, so we drove to Tel Aviv today, parked in the free city-sponsored parking by the Yarkon and then walked through the city for a few hours. It doesn’t take long before you realize that Tel Aviv has its own brand of humor that […]
