Lebanon ... as it used to be

These are random images of Lebanon, taken in September/October 2004. In light of the current destruction and onslaught going on there right now (and particularly since I now live in the middle east myself), these images have become more personal to me. It is my hope that the assault on this country ends soon, and that rebuilding process, which took so long after the civil war, will soon restore this lovely place to the way I remembered it.

My thoughts and prayers are with my friends and also those who have in one way or another, been affected by these terrible chain of events.

This is my photographic tribute to Lebanon. It is not intended to be a political gallery, but I will not delete any of the comments, even the ones I disagree with.

Please click on the thumbnails for a better view and for a brief description of each photo.
