Photo of the Day: Kids on the Road 5


OK, currently I am on a one week tour sponsored and provided through the amazing generosity of the Jordan Tourism Board. It is fabulous, educational and will provide the fodder for a half dozen posts. The only down side is that they have me doing so much great stuff, there is about zero time to post.

So I am going to get a couple small posts up this week, then hole up in a hostel and/or bar or coffee shop (don’t feel too sorry for me — I’ll be doing that on the beach in Dahab, Egypt) and knock out about 20 posts on Lebanon, Syria and Jordan.

Here is a shot I took in Tyre, Lebanon.  Story down below.

just love how kids love to have their pictures taken

The Roman ruins in Tyre are surrounded by the town, including a Palestinian refugee camp on one side. The road that is shown in this pic is supposedly the longest surviving Roman road in the world. Although there is a fence around this whole area, the locals have cut through it so they can cut across and use the road as…. a road.

    Kids do make for great photo subjects, and in this case, you picked a great backdrop as well. I hope you got to take some shots of the ruins as well! Have a great trip!

      I hope I got some good ruin shots. I haven’t gone through and edited those yet, though I am about to, since I am getting my Lebanon posts up starting this week.

      Thanks, Jamie. I thought the road and flowers really framed those kids nicely also.
