The Hajjars.

I visited my aunt's family, the Hajjars on my trip to Beirut earlier this year. They brought me to their charming apartment in Hamra, Beirut. I was fascinated with all the old photographs and paintings on their wall. Every one of the pieces on the wall had a significance and it was a joy listening to some of the stories. Of course, they have lived through years of war in Lebanon but they remain staunch Beirutis.

At the top!

Yesterday I had the opportunity to go up to the observation deck of Burj Khalifa on level 124. On assignment, I was authorised to go up before the deck actually opened to the public. One of the photographs I took was of the special electronic telescope device which displays the telescopic view on a screen.

I felt compelled to pull up my shot of the binoculars at the observation deck on the top of the Rockefeller building in New York City and put the two shots together...
