A Day in the Valley

I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.

Photoshop was not used on any of these images.


Abdo & Co.

Below are a series of photographs taken by Syrian children at a refugee camp in the Bekaa Valley, Lebanon.

Most of the photos were taken by a young boy whose nickname is Abdo.

The temperature was at freezing point at midday with not a single refugee dressed appropriately.

These children have never before used a camera, but definitely enjoyed using the compact Canon I had brought with me, and my phone until its very last drop of battery.

I hope you enjoyed looking at them as much as I have.


None of these photos have been edited on Photoshop, and I have retouched a few of them using iPhoto.

Reading Nature

The Lebanese Spring

“Spring is beautiful everywhere, but it is more than beautiful in Lebanon. Spring is the spirit of an unknown God speeding through the world, which, as it reaches Lebanon, pauses, because now it is as at home with the souls of the Prophets and Kings hovering over the land, chanting with the brooks of Judea, the eternal Psalms of Solomon, renewing with the Cedars of Lebanon memories of an ancient glory.” –  Khalil Gibran

People may think that I take too many pictures. I feel no reason to justify myself, but perhaps a slight need to explain it. Each picture is full of meaning and has a spiritual imposition. It takes more than a 3 second glance to understand and appreciate the details, many hidden and others obvious. Take a few more moments to appreciate the magic behind Nature, the Emotions you feel, and reward the power of Life.

These pictures were taken using a Nikon D40, with a variety of different lenses, including a zoom and fish eye lens. Photoshop has not been used on any of these photographs.
