Parks are almost extinct in Beirut, so the best place to spend a sun­ny Sunday is the Corniche. One of the most iden­ti­fi­able fea­tures of the city is also its most endur­ing: a long water­front ter­race fre­quent­ed by peo­ple of all sizes, shapes, col­ors and ages.

I spent an hour this after­noon on a bench there, exchang­ing sto­ries with strangers and tak­ing pho­tos. Of all the peo­ple I saw, the chil­dren seemed the most fas­ci­nat­ed with being out­doors. Their par­ents were all too hap­py to stop, chat and then allow me to snap away — in hope that their good times would be cap­tured, and per­haps pre­served, by the cam­era.
