If you'll be so good as to excuse the repetition, I'll share this image with you today.
In June last year, I posted a image of the same place, taken from a spot near where I stood this time around--I think I like the other picture better. That one is an image that I love.
If you compare the two pictures, you'll see little change. It's the same cluster of buildings, the same three trees at the bottom right, the same blue bucket inexplicably tied near a window. Nearly a year has passed, but I see no sign of the elapsed time.
That's Beirut for you. Tremendous change and its absence all in one little city.
