Weekly Photo Challenge

A Face in the Crowd

It’s amazing how a single photo taken in a single moment, can capture so many different things.

Even when a crowd gathers at a single location you will notice how no two persons will ever be doing the exact same thing. And that is what makes life so wonderfully unpredictable (at most times!).

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter B

This week, Cee’s Foto Challenge is all about posting colours that start with the letter b. My contribution will take you through different provinces of Pakistan, in each picture.

Road Trips and Bridges

Last summer, my siblings and I went on a trip to Pakistan’s northern areas (Gilgit, Baltistan).

The natural beauty we spotted took away our breath each time. Since the roads have been constructed by cutting down huge mountains and rocks – most of the rides were bumpy but nevertheless, extremely fun.

We spotted several bridges along the way and keeping this week’s challenge in mind, I decided to share a few of them with you.

I always prefer road trips over airplane flights; because to me experiencing nature, all kinds of rides and even road troubles – is all part of the adventure.
