Martyrs Statue

Martyr's Square, Downtown Beirut, Lebanon
Beirut is a city of.. Multitudes. Dichotomies. Surprises. Soaring beauty & devastating poverty. Colors flicking from shade to shade in ever shifting, ever dramatic light. Highs & Lows of every kind. Modern & Old fighting for top of the heap.. Quite literally. New buildings cropping up constantly in the remnants of the last bombings. An older, ornate ‘Paris of the Middle East’ struggling to survive the modernity as Beirut tries to move away from a riddled past. People who deeply love their country - who want you to love it as well! And flowers, flowers of every kind and smell. Welcome to Beirut. Cheers, Ashley
