I selected 11 of my favorite pictures and shared them in this post but I strongly recommend you follow him and check out his gallery [here].

I had the chance to visit Sky Gate, which is currently the highest building in Beirut, and take shots of the severe sandstorm that has swept across Lebanon for the past three days. I went all the way up to the roof and took some amazing pictures that I’m sharing with you. I’m going back in a week to take the same shots and show you the contrast once the sandstorm is over so stay tuned. I will also share some information regarding Sky Gate because it’s quite an amazing building.

PS: Many thanks to Mena Capital and Elyse for granting me access 🙂

The Best Photo & Video Of The #YouReek Protests

Posted By :

karim-mostafa-crying-soldier Photo by Karim Mostafa

A Lebanese policeman was in the middle of the clashes when he completely lost it, sat down on the side of the road and started crying. When protesters spotted the police officer, they rushed and helped him out. One of the protester (Nassif el Rayyis) even caught the incident on [video] and I absolutely loved his caption “We cooperate, they dominate… They have orders to keep us apart, we have the courage to make the change”.

Police officers are just following orders and I’m sure most of them would never want to hit peaceful protesters. It’s too bad that the demonstrations turned violent and were hijacked by thugs yesterday night.

livelovelebanon

LiveLoveLebanon is an initiative launched by the Ministry of Tourism to show everyone through pictures and videos the true beauty of Lebanon and promote tourism in our country. I’ve been supportive of this campaign ever since it started and it’s an honor for me to take over the LiveLoveLebanon Instagram account for this weekend. I know we’re going through rough times in Lebanon, but we should always try to stay positive and promote the true beauty of our country.

Feel free to follow @livelovelebanon and myself @lenajib for updates and I hope you enjoy my takeover!

Lebanon’s Garbage Crisis From Another Perspective

Posted By :

gr20150726-sukleen-84-2

“Move to trash” is a nice series of conceptual photos related to the garbage crisis shot by Lebanese photographer Ghaleb CabbabĂ©. It pretty sums up the image of Lebanon that we are clinging to versus the gruesome reality we are currently living in. Some may say that we as Lebanese are delusional and that things will only get worse, but as long as we are living in this country and believe in it, we should keep hoping and working for a positive change.

Check out the rest of the pictures [here].
