The Farm House

November 30th, 2009

On my last trip to Lebanon, a friend gave me the chance to visit a 400-odd year old farm house which is currently being renovated in the hills above Batroun.

It’s a beautiful little structure that’s completely held together at the moment by wood beams and metal bars.

Take a tour below:

The Forest (D700, Tamron 24-135mm f/3.5-5.6 @ 24mm, f3.5, ISO 200, 1/80sec + flash SB900)

Lights and Metal (D700, Tamron 24-135mm f/3.5-5.6 @ 24mm, f3.5, ISO 200, 1/80sec + flash SB900)

It was like walking through a dark metal forest.

The farmhouse is a single-story structure. The roof was accessible via a rickety ladder.

This is the old oven:

I had arrived to the farm land in late afternoon, just before sunset. Serendipitous really, as it allowed me to experiment a little with longer exposures and a flash.

They’re evidently quite serious about the renovation:

Before I leave you, I’d like to share something with you that completely blew me away: an experimental 360-degree panoramic music video. I could watch 360-degree panorama videos all day.

More pictures coming soon!
