We went back (me and Rodrigue, XVarior) to these souks, a few months after around two years of heavy clashes and fighting in the area, luckily the souks are back to normal and the merchants were very welcoming.

 

Nuts

These pics are amazing! Seeing them brings back memories of places like Amman, Jerusalem or other similar places. I can almost smell the rich odors and hear the voices and sounds of merchants and customers of the market.

 

Thanks for sharing!

See why we want you to come to Lebanon :-)

Rodrigue, I would love to pay a visit to this wonderful country and above all to meet you and Edgard.

BTW, speaking of the meat merchant, take a look at the painter Soutine in the internet. He made lots of butchery paintings! I always believed butcheries are very "colorful" and interesting to shoot. Unfortunately, I can't find any in the US; meats are all frozen in the supermarkets!!!...  Another reason to visit you guys!

      Bought from in March 2018 (still under warranty) but hardly used as the 28mm frame lines in my M10 are very hard to see as I wear glasses (am disinclined to get a .85x mag). A very reluctant sale as this is a gorgeous lense. It is in near mint condition, not often used, has been stored in a drybox since purchase, and has had a protective filter fitted since new. Includes original box, leather case, lens hood, HOYA filter, and original front & rear caps plus aftermarket front & rear caps. Copy of original receipt available if required. Postage / insurance etc extra if not a local sale.
