Wix was Here

I might have mentioned somewhere in the history pages of this blog that I've created my website using the Wix platform. If you haven't visited Wix you are missing out. As far as I'm concerned, it is the best solution for people like me, who want to control and update their site, but know nothing about programing.
But I am getting beside the subject... Wix has recently launched a really cool contest in which one must submit a photo using the "Wix was here" sign somewhere in it. There are some funny submissions, along with some weird ones, and even some artistic entries. This is mine...

You can click here and vote for me. You can vote every day until Feb 21st  :)

A different Wedding

Last week I shot an untraditional wedding. It was held in a club, there was no Rabbi or an official ceremony, or any ring exchanges, and the bride & groom weren't dressed like your average couple. How fun!
The bride wore a light blue vintage dress, purchased on Etsy, leopard Jimmy Choo heels, and instead of a veil she had a flower and net piece in her hair. To finish it off she wore a fo fur vintage cote. She looked like a Holywood starlet. The groom was wearing a vintage floral light blue shirt that complimented his bride's dress, dark denims, a brown jacket, and for the final touch, a brown fedora.
I chose Chen Blvd. in Tel Aviv as our location to photograph the couple before the wedding, as I thought it would be a great setting for those two. Indeed it proved to be just perfect, and I had the most amazing time photographing them.
Congratulations Yohay & Galia. I wish many many years of happiness with each-other!

Birthday list *Update*

Back in October I posted up my 32 Things To Do Before I'm 33 list. It's been three months now, mid-way to my birthday and thus far I've only completed FOUR items out of 32. I have just three months to attempt completing 28 items, and though anything's possible, I am a bit skeptic about succeeding in this task. I can unfortunately guarantee you that items 7 and 19 will not be completed this time around.
So what have I checked off my list?

Item # 3 - 'finish the work station of my dreams' . It was one of the best projects my someone & I have done, and it was all thanks to his amazing dad! You can read all about it here as well as see photos of the whole process.
Item # 8 - 'Get my taxes/business properly sorted and registered' . It was a long process but I am glad to say that as of today I am all sorted out, properly registered and finally filed my 2009 tax forms (I was just a little bit late.... just a little)
Item # 22 - 'find the perfect little black dress' . Back in November I went shopping with my friend Jen and we visited my favorite shop "Liligrace". I can never go wrong there! I found the perfect little black tunic, which is actually more like a dress, and it's got pockets (which is what makes it perfect in my eyes!). But my luck didn't end there- last week I was looking for something to wear for a good friends' wedding, and I went straight to Liligrace. I found the most perfect little black skirt and guess what it's got? Yep, it has pockets(!!)
Item # 25 - 'spend a weekend away with my someone doing NOTHING' . Let me just say that this is definitely THE best item to check off this list :) So my someone and I took off for a mid-week weekend and it was amazingly good! See our recap here
OH, and I am almost done with item # 28 !

That's it for now. Hope I'll have more to update on this list before my time runs out...

Lightning Storm

Friday started off as a nice sunny winter day, with clear blue skies, and not a cloud in sight. My someone and I actually spent most of that day outdoors, eating breakfast outside and running errands. By night fall the weather has completely shifted and it turned cold and cloudy. Then around 9:30 pm as I was relaxing at home I started noticing weird flashes out the window every few minutes. Later some thunders came too. I stepped out to the balcony and was mesmerized! I have never seen a real lightning storm before then and this was such a sight I had to run and snap a few shots. These photos were taken with my camera hand-held so they don't even show half of what was really going on. Still, I am quite proud of myself for getting something... Do you like?

Stylish Blogger Award

Last week I got a very flattering note from Dulci of La Dulci Vida. She has awarded with me with the Stylish Blogger Award. Sounds fancy doesn't it ?! Well, as any good blog award it comes with "rules"

1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award - Done! Go ahead and check out Dulci's blog. You'll enjoy it as much as I do!
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 10 recently discovered great bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about this award

So here are my seven things...
1. As much as I love being a photographer I have a secret wish to operate some sort of a graphic design business
2. I don't really like cleaning but I can't stand a dirty house...
3. The number one thing I'd like to accomplish before I die is to be able to do a cartwheel
4. My favorite everyday outfit would be a pair of skinny jeans, a soft t-shirt in black / gray / white, and a thin cardi to match
5. If I could have one more ability it would be to fly
6. With number 5 said, I hate flights! I love travelling and seeing new places, but the part in which I board a plane, that I could live without
7. I am hopeless romantic

Now to pass it forward...

Lynn of Hearted Girl
Amy of Varnish
Maria of LuluLetty
Liana of Mixed Plate
Torie of Torie Jayne
Fallon of Sweet Fancy

Our Mid-Week Weekend

I'd like to start this post by apologizing for my absence. I was away for a few days up north with my someone, and then when we got back Wednesday afternoon I had to get right back in to work, and I've been working every day since. I finally managed to find some free time to edit the photos from our wonderful vacation of nothingness and I am thrilled to share them with you.
We spent two nights at a little boutique Bed & Breakfast called Osnata, located at Kfar Vradim in Western Galilee (Israel of course...). We spent every moment indulging on food, wines, nature hikes, jacuzzi dips, and most of all, relaxing. Here are bits of mid-week weekend
