A Diamond’s Eye View of the World

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

delusions of artistry

Posted by adiamondinsunlight on August 10, 2007

Standing on M’s terrace with a big digital camera in my hands encouraged my ego in its daydream that I am an “artiste” photographer. Here are the results of my efforts to blend M’s lush landscaping with the Achrafieh skyline:

    Wish I had M’s amazing green thumb – the garden through which you are shooting is also gorgeous!

    The jasmines are lovely😀

    I grow up around jasmines and their smell will never part with me🙂

    Lovely photos.

  5. Rami, thank you for the web link – the photographers there are wonderful.

    Sparkle, I think sporty d has the market cornered on inheriting the maternal photography gene:) but thank you!

    Khalti, M’s terrace garden is so, so refreshing. Their housekeeper puts in a great deal of time and effort – and the results are lovely.

    Kinan, I too love jasmine – I didn’t really grow up with it, but living in the Levant brings so many jasmine encounters that I feel I am making up for lost time🙂.
