I’ve seen first combo photo several years ago. About a year ago I imagined the first visual image. I thought about Azrieli Towers in Tel Aviv. There are three towers and each other has a simple geometrical shape (round tower, square tower and triangle tower). It can be interpreted as part of a children’s game. And that was my idea: combo photo of a child playing with Azrieli towers.
But first let’s start with a basic question: what is a combo photo? I haven’t found any definition online. Thus I’ll define it as a merging of two or more photos into one.
About a month ago I started to go through my collection of photos. During this period I created a series of combo photos. Most of the photos used are mine, but in several cases, I bought photos from Adobe Images in order to complete this project.
Today I’ll show you the series of combo photos. But first I wanted to show another photo. When I went through my collection, I found out that I already created combo photos in the past. The most recent example is this photo from Tribute to Oranges:
Combo Photos Of Israeli Buildings
As I mentioned previously it all started from Azrieli buildings. I took this photo (appeared in Azrieli Center during Sunset):
I didn’t like the result. The first lesson I learned is that simpler subjects are better for combo photos. Thus I searched my collection for another, simpler image of Azrieli towers and found this one:
From there I continued to Haifa. The Sail Tower is Haifa’s tallest building.
Next is the Design Museum in Holon. This building has ribbon facade.
The perfect candidate would be a child playing with ribbons. And here is the result:
Next is Eilat, the Southern city in Israel with the unique building of the underwater observatory.
I’ve looked for information about the Coral World Underwater Observatory building, but haven’t found anything that would tell about the architecture and more specifically why this shape was chosen. Thus I used my association and got this.
Combo Photos Of Israeli Nature
Another famous rock formation in Israel is “elephant’s leg” at Rosh HaNikra grottoes.
Then I used this took a photo of a baby elephant that I took in at Safari morning tour several years ago:
As you can see in this series I tried to avoid any religious conflicts and didn’t use any related buildings (though Israel has plenty religious buildings) in order not to offend anybody. But, I couldn’t finish this series without a photo of the Western Wall. I combined one of my photos of the Western Wall with mosaics of Ten Commandments (appears on a synagogue in Acre) and got this:
