A Diamond’s Eye View of the World

a multi-faceted look at the middle east, and the middle west

leaving on a jet plane

Another morning, another trip.

This morning I left Beirut on an early MEA flight to Heathrow – missing the Hariri commemmoration entirely.

At least this time I remembered to bring my camera. While wandering the almost empty 14-23 gates, I took a few photographs looking towards the city.

I love the morning light, and here it seems especially ethereal.

(The center photo is higher-res than the others so you may need to expand your windows to full screen size in order to see it properly.)

    The third picture would be really nice if it weren’t so hazy. =\

  2. dear Jordan,

    you are quite right – the haze makes the image much less crisp. I love it though, because it is so Beirut – the haze lingers in the mountains even when the city and the seaside are a brilliant blue.

  3. Truly beautiful pictures.

  4. CHARLES – I understood from your last email that you were off to an internet cafe to write a sober and compelling analysis of yesterday’s commemmoration. Why are you wasting time commenting on my photos:-)??
