Today April 24 , 2012 is the 97th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, We Armenians in Lebanon marched
more then 20,000 took part in the march which started from Armenian Orthodox Catholicosate in Antelias, and proceeded to the Turkish Embassy in nearby Rabiyeh
Love the fact every single Armenian was there , Old and young were walking towards Turkish Embassy and for one cause Armenian Genocide
Dance of the Aged Tenacity!
A tired, aged lady, whose soul is filled with determination… and dances freely… even the clothes she is wearing and the movement emerging from the fabric reflects that walking alone towards the unknown ..I didn’t want to annoy her so I took my space back and shot her behind a car ..
I am back with some NEW Photo blog posts ,
Each one of us has it’s own interest and these interests can change due to our age .. as you will see the photos below group of Ladies playing Cards gathered together I met them playing in Zahle during a photo trip with Beirut Street Photographers in a restaurant . ..I must add they were quite professional .When I asked them how often do they gather and play one of them looked at me and said Day yes Day yes it’s our daily ritual ..that’s cool I guess for Ladies around their age 😀 ..I managed to take some photos without bothering them and Hope you guys like it
Thank you everyone who commented on my last blog post 🙂
I visited Syria this weekend to be one of presenters at Pecha Kucha Aleppo V.03 .. and it was my first time in Aleppo so after 7 hours from Beirut I arrived to Aleppo … Oh on the Syrian borders THEY took my camera to scan it, I don’t know to WHERE, but can you imagine how i Felt at those moments? But anyhow I got it BACK-OF COURSE
Mobile network got jammed when I arrived there 😛 because Syrian telecommunication companies decided to send 60 minutes free to all their customers and you can imagine how everyone was using it.. and yea because of that it took me around 40 minutes to contact my friends – Aleppo IS A BIG BIG CITY . old buildings, which I liked them .. narrow streets ..and crowded. It’s ..A street Photographer will definitely be very happy .. I was lucky to get some shots but I didn’t have MUCH Time to go out and shoot people.. but I am definitely going back 😀
Petcha Kucha with around 300 attendees, was pretty awesome we were 10 presenters and I was the 2nd one . I presented my Photo blog and talked about my blog posts and encouraged everyone to start a blog, it was an awesome feeling :D!
Here are some highlight photos Enjoy !
Thank you everyone who commented , shared , tweeted my previous blog post 🙂
