Balcony life. by ruthmouch

Balcony life.

Yesterday we took Georgie and Eric, the German photographers to Gemayzeh...a predominantly christian/Armenian area of Beirut as they enjoy street photography. This lady just happened to open her balcony curtains as we passed by.

Hallelujah...back to school today (after 3 months off)!!! Grace excited and happy, routine will be rather pleasant for a while I think.
Most unusually (for the time of year) we had a shower of rain this morning which lasted all of about 3 minutes, but as we're expecting temps in the 30s for as long as the forecast is currently showing it's no reason to start hunting for coats and jumpers!
She has just got up I thought then i looked a t the time & thought ...no! Looks like her nightie though, bet she got a shock when she saw you with the camera!

@phil_howcroft Nearly all balconies have them Phil...great when it's too sunny and also to keep the torrential rain out!

@happypat During the very hot days of summer older/more traditional ladies may wear nightie type outfits (if you get my drift!) especially if there is no AC as they don't wish to soil their proper clothes..!

@stimuloog They are very common and are great for keeping the sun out and also the torrential rain.
