For me, this blog is first and foremost, a great excuse to get out there with my camera, to create something to keep and share of a city that I love. It helps to be part of the City Daily Photo community. Y'alls comments mean the world to me.
City Daily Photo is world-wide. Anyone, anywhere can join and that openness allows us all a simpler view of the world, sometimes from very different points of view, one photo at a time. Without this community, I'm sure I never would have seen this picture taken in Jerusalem. Go ahead and click, and compare it to my photo below.
We have almost-matching lion buildings.
I don't know when Beirut's Assicurazioni Generali building went up but it is shockingly like the one in Jerusalem. Also, I'm not sure if the building still houses the Generali Group or not, but the ground floor is now an upscale cafe in one of the most squeaky-clean sections of town.
