Sunset over the city's spectacle
When entering a city’s outskirts, the landscape, slowly but surely, begins to change. Plants give way to constructions which causes a feeling of urbanity to arise. As if on a red carpet, you slowly approach the goal on this ride, and before you know it, you are already in the middle of the spectacle.
Within the city’s limited space, a whole new world opens up. It’s loud, fast, colorful, flashy, and intense. As so many things happen simultaneously – looking for attention – only a few get actively noticed. On this playground, everybody and everything is a spectator and an actor contributing to the overall picture.
However, the abundance of these things sometimes causes a feeling of tightness. When it becomes problematic, it is perhaps time to leave the city’s crowded space for a short time because if you look at the spectacle from a bit of distance, you can get a clearer view.
In this photo, you can see the the sunset over Tel Aviv (Israel). Besides seeing residential buildings, you can also see all the modern skyscrapers surrounding the Ayalon motorway. I took this photo in September 2021 from a viewpoint in the neighboring city of Givatayim.
