Let the Sunshine In

Window panes cracked, shattered, broken. Never mind. They let the sunshine in.

It's a gorgeous day, the kids are playing on the balcony, enjoying a quiet Sunday afternoon.


  1. I just spent an hour on your blog. Wow, I really miss Beirut. I have to find a way to get back there.

    Great photos.

  2. Me too I miss my daily shot of Beiruti beauty here. Though my blog is on hold too at the mo - hopefully we'll both be back to blogging very very soon.

    thank you

  5. Hi,
    I stumbled on your blog, when I googled "dragon+beirut" because I was looking for the meaning of this sticker I found: http://sansglutenabeyrouth.blogspot.com/2012/06/dragons-beyrouth.html
    Such a great blog. Thank you documenting our city. Many of the buildings you took pictures of, are unfortunately disappearing... I noticed at least 2 that are no longer there...
    Do you use a special lens to correct perspective? or do you edit your pics later?
    You have an eye for architectural details. Are you in the architectural field?
    Looking forward to reading your future posts.

  6. It's been a while, missing my daily Beirut update. Hope things are well with you.

  7. Yes, so do I too.
    Hope you and yours are doing fine.

  8. Great photo, hope you are all well, I love your books linked to your profile!

  9. Dear Mary Ann,
    I ve been looking for a way to contact you. I hope you'll get this comment here.
    I wanted to tell how much i admire your sensibility towards the urban details of this city. You've surprised me with your delicate approach and your "beiruti" sense of capturing the essence of this city, better than a lot of native lovers of Beirut.
    Your blog has been an inspiration and if you ever come back to Beirut one day, i would love to meet you and show you my work.
    Hope you and your children are well.
    All the best.

    Abdallah from Beirut.
