Beruit Street Art, Jesus and Mary

So while walking around Beirut I happened to take some pictures of some of the graffiti and street art, some was really rad, some amused or humored me, and some I thought made a good photo. Surprisingly there are lots of street art and graffiti in the streets. There are actually some really good artist in Beirut, and a lot of it I didn’t get any photos of  because most of it I saw was when I was in the taxi or riding in someones car, but the ones I saw on foot I took photos of so here’s are some photos!

There was one thing that I had no idea of when I came to Lebanon. It was the fact that there are so many Christians here, because the majority in the middle east is Muslim. So another thing that you will see a lot of in the streets of Lebanon are shrines of Jesus or Mary there almost on every block or posters on the walls. I’m not a religious person but I kinda like the shrines and seeing Jesus every where, it reminds me of my grandma and my nana, it also bring a lot of character to the city,  there’s one shrine that I was particularly interested in, its off the highway and its at a gas station, so while you’re pumping your gas you can go over to the shrine and take a kneel and have a quick prayer, kill two birds with one stone. So yeah, took some shots of the jesus, he’s my homeboy!

    Don’t forget that the sacred heart of Jesus (and the one in the kitchen) and the novena grandma prays for you every morning on her 3 mile walk is what’s keeping you safe and free sista!
