I’ve been checking for the past 20 minutes amazing pictures of Beirut and Lebanon on Skyscrapercity.com. They have a thread dedicated to Beirut and it’s updated almost daily with new pictures.

I picked up few of the latest posted pictures. You can check out the rest [Here].

Humans of Lebanon

Boghos , known as Klashinkof boghos. He has lots of stories to tell about his heroic past , He sells fish in Bourj Hammoud and express his ideas loudly on the streets. Photo by KrikOrian Mher at Burj Hammoud

If you have a shot of a Falafel seller in Bourj Hammoud,
or an old couple on their balcony in Beit Merry,
or a man walking his dog in Dbayeh,
or a fisherman fishing off the coast of Tripoli,
or a young couple walking in Raouche,
or a ski-fanatic getting back from his daily routine in Faraya,
or a farmer working in the Bekaa valley
or anyone doing anything memorable anywhere in Lebanon
send it to humansoflebanon@gmail.com :)
Have your photograph sent with a short story behind it to share.

This project is inspired by the work of Brandon Stanton in Humans of New York (HONY).

I think it’s a very nice project as it helps portraying Lebanon’s diversity and discover young talented Lebanese photographers. If you want to submit your photos or know more about Humans of Lebanon, check their facebook page [Here].

Scuderia Phoenicia

Posted By :

Scuderia Phoenicia is a Lebanese car spotter who takes pictures of the cool cars he spots and then uploads them onto his Flickr page. He’s got a pretty good collection of cars so far and I’ve realized we’ve got a pretty good amount of 458’s (pictured above) in Lebanon already. Check out the cars he’s spotted [Here]

Fake AP pictures from Tripoli

Photo edited by myself in a previous post

I remember arguing with someone over that picture asking him how did he identify the gunmen as being Sunnite? The answer was the photo is from Associated Press and it says so.


AP Photo by Hussein Malla

That ought to be a valid reason but it turns out the pictures are taken by a Lebanese called Hussein Malla and are fake. In fact, “The gunmen are purportedly taking cover (behind a useless pile of tires) and firing at an unseen enemy, but right next to them are several unconcerned bystanders who are themselves completely exposed to any return fire, and yet making no effort to hide or seek protection. Instead, many of them are standing around calmly and even laughing and smiling (as are the gunmen in some of the pictures), probably at the ridiculousness of the obviously staged battle.” [Link]

Photography workshop for the visually impaired at AUB

Eyes that feel: Picture from NewsObserver

Center for Civic Engagement and Community Service, in partnership with Ojos que Sienten A.C and Image Festival Association “Zakira,” are organizing a workshop “Seeing beyond Sight,” sensory photography for the visually impaired, May 21-27, from 10am to 2pm at West Hall, Auditorium A. [AUB]

The workshop will be given by by Gina Badenoch, Founder of Ojos que Sienten A.C.

I was discussing this workshop with few tweeps yesterday night and I thought it was a bad joke at first. I had no idea such workshops existed but they do and I think it’s a great opportunity that visually impaired individuals should not miss.

For those of you who know people that are visually impaired or are interested in this workshop, I strongly recommend that you register (it’s for free) by sending the below information to ccecs@aub.edu.lb.
