Broken Grid by Majnouna Broken Grid by Majnouna
I just like looking closely at things too normal to look at :)

Jeitawi, Beirut, during a very fruitful photo safari today. Perspective corrected in Photoshop.

I really think that this is ugly yet beautiful in a really neat way. I love that it's not really symmetrical but the pieces make it interesting - from the windows to the fans.

I hope that you don't mind that I featured this photograph in my recent journal entry displaying Architectural Details: [link]

:aww:

Wow!! The mother of Malaak is my neighbour; I'm honored! Well in that case, I'm gonna invite you for the traditional cup of coffee between neighbours (unfortunately, I don't have any Youness coffee, just regular Nescafe :) )

Hehe I'll be happy with tea, I actually can't drink coffee other than Younes', I hate the stuff! Today though I am chaining myself to my desk till I finish my Christmas presents, so unless you'd like to drop by instead, it'll have to be after the holidays :)

Where is this exactly? The texture of the building looks familiar, but I can't the same about those windows.

Behind Mustashfa-roum, but more precise than that I couldn't explain!
