I met this elder man while strolling along Armenia Road in Bourj Hammoud. He sets up shop right in the entrance of a residential building. No sign, no windows, no storefront: just a desk and modest chair.
But that little corner is very much his own with posters of watches and maps hung as ornaments or perhaps a makeshift window display.
He let me watch as he got to work. I wasn’t really sure if he was really fixing it or just tinkering with it for the photographs, but he seemed engrossed enough in what he was doing that I really didn’t mind.
