Coming Down Slowly

On the lengthy list of things one need not do without in Beirut: political posters. They're everywhere. I haven't photographed many of them, but that'll likely change eventually. That peeling-off poster (glued up over some other guy's poster) to the right of the left window--politics.

Long after the votes have been cast and the polls have closed, the signs remain. Time, if nothing else, pulls them down slowly.


  1. It has been a long time since I have commented on your blog, but I really like your pictures. Thank you! By the way, what is the small red image under the window in the left?

  2. Looks like someone's head . . . I'll have to go back and get a close up 'cause I'm not sure what that is.

  3. Somehow posters on the wall don't bother me, but posters blowing around annoy me! Political posters here have a date by which they must come down, or the shockjocks have a go onair about the slackness of the political party concerned. I guess Lebanon marches by a different drum.
