Welcome to the second post of POW related to Lebanon.
As much as we are excited that the rhythm of work hasn’t slowed down at all, nevertheless we found out the having Lebanese
POW is a bit more difficult than searching around for international photos,
without forgetting that we should stay out of the small political problem, and keep
POW for Lebanon and the world also.
But as you will see below, politics is a big thing a Lebanon, and we cannot hide it everywhere, especially the big local events.
As we are still waiting for your feedback about these posts, (where you can write them below), we would like to tell you that you can help us also in our search to find the best lebanese photos of events or occasion out here, just send us the photo
or talk to us through our facebook page.
