Hummus For Thought

By Guest Author and Photographer Krikorian Mher from Beirut Street Photographers

Some shots leave a deeper mark on the photographer, and those are some of them. Have you ever entered a small old shop and looked around? Well, Most probably the owner will be in his late 50’s or 60’s , busy working and will barely notice you enter, Because it’s been a while since somebody really went through his shop and asked for something.

I did go inside, I did talk with him and there in the corner, just where destiny stands, I noticed the wall filled with photos and crosses of Jesus Christ and Saints he believed in…all enveloped in dust…just like our destiny will one day.

Armenian Genocide 97th anniversary in Lebanon

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

 


I am walking ..

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 ..

Playing Cards

Hello ,

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 🙂

Aleppo – Halab

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 🙂
