BOURJ HAMMOUD ON SUNDAY • Click on the slideshow for a larg­er view.

My Swedish-Croatian-Brazilian friend Izabella Demavlys and I decid­ed to spend our Sunday after­noon pho­tograph­ing Bourj Hammoud.

She had dri­ven though the Armenian sub­urb of Beirut a few days ago and noticed that it looked denser, more archi­tec­tural­ly eclec­tic, and gen­er­al­ly more neigh­bor­hood-like than some oth­er parts of the city. Always ready for a good pho­to sto­ry, we picked up our cam­eras and head­ed out.

These are some of the pho­tos I took, and Izabella’s are on Facebook. It’s fas­ci­nat­ing how we each saw the same place in dif­fer­ent ways.
