A colleague and me had a saturday morning walk from Saifi Village through the Gamayze here in Beirut. We started with a strong coffee and passed through the little alleys.
In the backyard of one of these alleys, I found a store with these shop window dolls. Tried to cross-fade them with the mirroring from the windows.
Decoration in between the plants.
10 am and Saifi Village was incredibly empty.
We walked on the Gamayze and I started to realize, that Beirut is really becoming more a place for arts like graffities, stickers and stencils.
Though, the electrical power supply here is purely a joke.
We walked on the Gamayze main street and from time to time we entered some of the countless side streets here. They offer beautiful motives.
And everywhere you’ll find stencils.
It’s rare to find a street here in Beirut, that is not under construction. The construction worker was being pulled up the the rooftop and waved at us.
Next street: old and abandoned cars.
And beautiful graffiti’s.
A random scene here in Beirut. Electrical wires, AC’s and plants on the balconies.
And everywhere: shops.
While a city wide art festival was going on, I found a sticker on this building/shope here, that stated, that it’s participating here, too. But I didn’t dare to enter here. Creepy ambience.
This little fellow seemd in contrast to be a bit more relaxed, than me.
While we continued our tour, we found a little dreamlike garden inside Beirut.
As we returned, that cat was still there.
And everywhere decorated stares and drawings. It’s a nice street for a walk. Dozens of little shops, restaurants and bars.
Almost in Mar Mikhael. From there we headed back to Saifi Village.
And another cat, that relaxed in the merciless heat. 40 degrees in the sun can be tiring.
