One Day as a Tourist in Tel Aviv – The Blessings of Mindfulness

Buildings of Old Tel Aviv

We tend to take the familiar for granted, so when I had to go into Tel Aviv on an errand, I decided to take advantage of the opportunity, brought along my camera, put myself in complete “mindfulness mode” and used the eyes of a tourist for the short while I was walking around. It is quite wonderful the things that are all around us and that we don’t normally see. I had a surprising lovely day and hope you enjoy the photos. Lots of beautiful old buildings, some restored, others not…and other scenes I found worth photographing:  see more photos at this link:

I found my senses so keen and alert to everything around me, not just what I photographed – but the smells, the feel of the breeze on my face and my hair blowing in the wind, the noises from the street, from the people, from the birds and dogs, to my own footsteps on the pavement…I felt so fully alive.  It was wonderful.

Maybe I will make this a new habit….just get on a bus, go someplace with my camera, and enjoy the day wherever it takes me!!

Hope you enjoy the photos in this link:
