Petah Tiqva, Yarqon Interchange

The Tel Aviv area contains a dense grid of freeways. Each junction has a name, which is used to navigate. This particular junction is the crossing of a major north-south axis that goes from Jerusalem to Haifa, and an east-west axis that goes from Tel Aviv into the occupied West Bank. I have a soft spot for the inherent beauty of ugly places. The lack of any form of artifice or aesthetic design, the utter placelessness despite the road crossing's strong geometry, the electrical pylons, all combine to give this place its particular poetic flavour of misuse.

The picture functions in the same manner as "Winter's Water".
