So Many

There are so many textures, so many forms in this image. It's tempting to describe them in terms of opposites--new and old, hard and soft, flexible and rigid, organic and manufactured. Yes, it's tempting. I think it's also a mistake.

The mistake is in oversimplifying the visual complexity of this space, reducing a brilliantly eclectic cacophony into a checklist of yes and no.

  3. Beirut is many things, but not boring. Beirut is never boring.
