A little bit of magic.

I very often spend late night hours going through tumblrs and blogs on/from Middle East, since there are many great ones, with so much inspiration, so much heart break, and so much magic.

Here are some random moments that kinda work great together (to me). They capture the magic, whether they’ve crawled out of some old photo album or they’re freshly made graffiti on a half-destroyed building.

Enjoy.
