STING Rocking Beirut!

I was amazed by Sting performing live in concert yesterday in Beirut! Incredible voice singing new and old songs of his repertoire, accompanied by really great great musicians. Camera wasn’t allowed, so I took some pictures with my phone and some videos, hope you will enjoy them!

Sting was born in 1951 in England, joined the Brit group “The Police” in 1977, whose songs are now classics of Pop Music, like Roxanne, Every Breath you take, Don’t stand so close to me, Message in a bottle... He went solo in 1985 and contributed to Music History with “Russians”, “They dance alone”, “fragile”, “Englishman in New York” which was even covered by rap and hip hop artists.The secret of his success? he is very talented but is also a hard worker, has an impeccable lifestyle, he exercises many hours a day and is still married to the same woman after 20 years!An interesting fact: Sting also wrote the huge hit “Money for Nothing (I want my MTV)” with Mark Knopfler for Dire Straits!
Thanks to Maya Metni my music encyclopedia ;-)

Keep Calm and watch this video...


We have seen the famous Keep Calm and Carry On poster in many variations. Its origin at the beginning of WWII, never distributed to the public and was discovered in an English book shop in 2000, becoming one of the iconic images of the 21st century- Via YouTube

Instagram Haters Gonna Hate...


I am an instagram addict, I post on a daily basis new pictures and every day my Twitter stream and my Facebook newsfeed are full of Instagram haters: professional photographers who hate instagram, and think that instagram destroys the quality of the image."they make all pictures look the same, they require no thought of creative input: one click and you are done"

For those that remember the rise of digital cameras, the argument sounds familiar...

I don't thing Instagram is killing photography , Instagram has become the most popular – and most famous – app for sharing and viewing photos
This app can be used to market good photography.
It can help you to practice and learn how to take a picture.
It is about sharing moments with all the world.
Instagram allows and even encourage people to take and share photos that otherwise would not be taken. it is quite fun to see the world from so different people's eyes,I see it as a major addition to social networking life.
I think there is plenty of room for all style photography and photographers of all levels.
At  the end of the day, what tools you use do not define how creative you are…. 

What you think? Is INSTAGRAM killing photography?

The difference...

Good Ads catch our attention and build the brand’s image.
Some others are also great, but create controversy, specially in the Midle east like the latest "just falafel" ad. Some find it disturbing and inappropriate.
 I invite you to take a look to the latest Durex brilliant ad “The difference between Obama and Romney”. What do you think?
Size does Matter...

Mobile payments coming soon to Lebanon.


Last week, I was invited to join a Lebanese entrepreneur,Karim El-Khoury for the visit to the offices of a Lebanese startup VIAMOBILE.
One of the startups in its portfolio is Pay By Simba which I and lots of others will profit from this service…

We tweet, take photos, share interesting stuff using our phones. In 2013 we will be able to pay using our phones. A new mobile service “Pay By Simba” will transform our phones to a wallet, allowing us to send money, pay bills and recharge our phones...
Karim shows me an interesting presentation and how to use the application and some sneak peeks that I cant share it with you right now..
All I can say “Pay by Simba” is a genius idea that will solve many paying problems in Lebanon but will make the lazy among us even lazier.
Make sure to Like and Follow Simba for the latest updates.
