As a fragile ceasefire holds in Lebanon, families from bomb-hit areas have been trying to retrieve what remains of their possessions from beneath the rubble.
Displaced families have tried to head home across the remains of battered bridges.
Many roads are impassable, forcing people to hack away at the debris to try to forge a way through.
Families and their possessions have crammed into vehicles, some clutching pictures of Hezbollah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah.
In the flattened town of Bint Jbeil, some wounded elderly residents unable to flee had spent 10 days stuck with the dead and injured.
The village saw some of the fiercest clashes between Hezbollah and Israel, leaving residents trapped in the midst of devastation.
The survivors had watched the town become rubble around them as the fighting raged.
In the capital, Beirut, people ventured into the bomb-ravaged southern suburbs - which had been a Hezbollah stronghold - to salvage what they could.
But many residents have no homes to go back to, and no salvageable possessions.
For thousands of homeless, injured and bereaved Lebanese people, the end of the conflict does not mean normal life is about to restart.
