For about a year in the 80s, my family and I lived on Kibbutz Hanita, located at the north end of Israel by the coast of the Mediterranean Sea and not far from the Lebanese border. Our closest major city, and by extension our closest proximity to "normal" American life (read: IHOP), was Nahariya, Israel. Our kibbutz was seeded largely by the company my dad worked for, the "Kotlab," which was a metallizing plant manufacturing films for assorted consumer goods. Some agriculture also helped support the Kibbutz.
I was only 6 when we lived in Israel. These are some of my photos, shot with my first camera.
