Have you ever wondered how's life within an orange?
Probably the architect got inspiration from the juicy oranges that used to grow in the groves of the area, the oval "Jaffa" type.
The variety actually originated in China. The first orange tree was brought to the West in the 16th century by Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama. It is from that single tree, still preserved in Lisbon, that all of the oranges of Portugal, Spain, France and Israel have come.
The first oranges to carry the "Jaffa" brand were from the agricultural colony of the Temple Society, established by German pioneers in 1871 just a few kilometers from Jaffa.
The "oranges" in the photo are the offices of a gas station. In the background - a couple of 5-star hotels.

Very strange building to live.
Strong contrast between the blue and the orange. I like this.

I wonder what the architect had been taking! Very strange office buildings. Good POV to show the hotel complex behind - a striking contrast.

A pretty and unusual view! Very effective pov and colors. The contrast of the orange against the deep blue sky is great.

Beautiful diagonal with rythmic oranges. These are probably new I don't remember that they were there 3 years ago. As you already know I also enjoy the BLUE matching with the ORANGE, which is just the case here.
Friendly yours - Izzet
