mr. america / by Maranie Staab

mr. america as seen on the backstreets of beirut.

i am going back through some images taken in lebanon this past october as i consider my plans for 2017. this image was taken during one of my many long walks around beirut and the surrounding neighborhoods. 

the desire to get on a plane and step off of it into a new, undiscovered (to me) place is always just under the surface of who i am. most days i am able to quiet that voice enough to allow me to focus on work here in pittsburgh, but some days it demands to be heard. today is (another) one of those days.
