Ok, so I am back after a long time … Apologies for that and thanks for appreciating my last post “Amazing Pakistan “. I never expected such an immense response as the blog post has been shared on more than 300 forums just in three months time with viewing statistics surpassing 30,000 in 7 months “Unbelievable and definitely encouraging for me“.. Bundle of thanks for all who liked it and shared, and even thanks to those who copied it without my explicit permission ; but at the end it serve the purpose, that what matters to me =)..
I am not a professional photographer, just a hobbyist nor I do have any kind of professional training so bear with me if you are unhappy with the shared pictures.. As I don’t have enough time to write so the alternative to feed my creative soul is to start clicking.. Below are the pictures from my last trip to Pakistan that captures the feel of two major cities Islamabad and Karachi and definitely not even close to painting the big picture that depicts the true aroma and soulfulness of these places.. I hope you Enjoy the first part of this series, you are most welcome to drop your comments..

One of the unexplored beaches in Pakistan, I guess Goth Mubarak don't have that much of visitors perhaps as it is a bit far from the populous areas in the way towards Baluchistan.. I am astonished to see the beach with noticeable two shades of water light green and blue and very thin grinned sand.. Amazing place that needs to be explored..

I grew up in Islamabad and affiliation and love for this place is somewhat natural. For me the serenity and calmness of this place I found no where else filled with my childhood memories...This picture is my personal favorite as it gives an aerial view

This place is called "Shehsha Tikka house", where the specialty is of course "Tikka" , but they are not only good at tikka , their chicken karahi , and chanp are too good.. Enjoy 😉 !

The Faisal Mosque lies in the heart of Islamabad, is the largest mosque in Pakistan and South Asia and the sixth largest mosque in the world.

Pakistan Monument lies in the heart of Islamabad representing the nation's four provinces and three territories. The four main petals of the monument represent the four provinces of Pakistan while the three smaller petals represent the three territories (Gilgit-Baltistan, Azad Kashmir and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas). The walls of the monument is engraved with the story of Pakistan's Movement dedicated to those who sacrificed themselves for future generations.

f a demoiselle crane ever challenges you to a "Dance Dance Revolution" competition, politely decline. This bird is a master when it comes to cutting a rug, as it not only uses the technique to attract a life partner, but also as a way to get their hormones going. In fact, if they don't dance, they won't be able to lay eggs, so their survival actually depends on it. @ Lake View Park Islamabad 🙂

“LAKE VIEW GARDEN , ISLAMABAD”, really a nice to place to visit, to breath some fresh air..
“Islamabad, the beautiful after the rain” 🙂

 

Dedicated to the children of my land: Khuda Kare k Mere Arze Pak per utre Woh Fasl-e-gul jisse Andash-e-Zawal na hu , Yahan ju phool Khile , Khila rahe sadiyun Yahan Khizaan ku guzarne k bhi Majal na hu ..(Dua by Ahmed Nadeem Qasmi)

    Pakistan ke muta’alliq achchi khabrein to milti nahein, achchi tasaaveer hii saheeh!

    Kya hii achcha ho agar aap in tasaaveer ko ek Urdu blog mein bhi shaa’e kar dein.
    [Sar-e-dast vaqt kii kami kii vajah se meray liye ek Angrezi ka blog sanbhaalna mushkil ho raha hai lekin iraadah hai ke jab bhi kuchh fursat mili ek Urdu ka blog bhi shuroo karun ga]
