Glimpses of DEIR EL QAMAR
With 7 CASTELS and 7 PORTAILS, it is a tourist's and photographer's dream. Uniqueness and stories seep out of each slight bend in Deir's narrow corridors and paths. Look on my Photo pages for pictures .

Photography Tips
Make sure you have the correct film 100 for sun views, 400 is more suitable for narrow streets shots and afternoon than 200. To become more familliar with the site here ,think as if you were in Venice: you must take hundred of shots. Do some slightly different things with your composition. For example, try placing subjects off-center, using natural lines or frames, or taking the picture from a different angle.

Let There Be Light
As this picture demonstrates, lighting can show the glory of the ordinary. For the best results, take pictures in the morning and evenings; the light at dawn and dusk brings depth and softness to objects and people.Here in Lebanon the sun gives long soft shadows and in the morning the same but harder:we could say a piece of surrealistic painting ,on the moon
