BANG!, BANG!, BANG! - HOW TO PICK UP A PHONE IN A WAR ZONE....

You wanna hear how war sounds?

Ok. Last week, Thursday. Me, my camera and Lebanese colleague, photographer Joe (for some kind of reason with blue UN helmet), in Beirut. The area is between Achrafieh and Basta. Bang, bang, bang!. The fighting between Hezbollah and pro-government Sunni groups (Hezbollah, as we know won). The guys hiding in the garage are the rather not so courageous soldiers of the Lebanese army.

Lesson one: In case of shooting, stay behind a wall!

Lesson two: Don't move the camera toooooo much!

Lesson three: Always pick up the phone, even when they keep on shooting!

Here's the video:
