Beirut - Lebanon - The Paris of the East! - November 2008 - Downtown Beirut is re-constructed mostly thanks to Rafik Hariri - The Paris of the East is back!
These superb photographic works, we had made during our holiday to Beirut, the capital of Lebanon in November 2008. Thanks to massive security operations in place in the city, we were sometimes hindered to photograph or on one or two occasions, we had been odered to delete certain pictures! So these would not have been all pictures from beautiful Beirut, when we had our way! This was a sad example for a nation, which should be free and should present itself in an open way to the world, especially through photography! Thanks! ( Beirut in November 2008 and the question, can I take a photo and show the world or not? ).
