One of the recent bomb blast sites in Lahore, this is about 5 min walk from where I am staying. There are police, snipers, security everywhere, absolutely no photo taking allowed, and even told to move one when I stopped just to look. 1/4 of a block demolished.
Set the Blad to infinity, closed the viewfinder, and shot from the hip as I walked past again.

    Exceptional shots – you’ve captured the essence of the streets of Lahore. Glad to see you’re still getting some use out of the Hasselblad – certainly one of the best cameras ever made!
    Best wishes and stay safe.

    Oops. I’m new at this. This reply was meant for Pretty Project – NOT you.

    So sorry. I really enjoyed the streets of Pakistan, also new to me.

    Great pictures and nice blog. I would love for people to see this side of Pakistan; that people are warm, friendly and even poor guys selling food on cart has heart big enough to treat a foreigner as a guest! I agree with others that these are not very good times to visit Pakistan but this is an amazing country with so much to offer that you can not get whole of it in few visits; from Budha remains to Indus civilization, to Glaciers, K-2, Himalayas and vast deserts and foremost, the people. Staying with pen-pals is a great way to see a country- I am Pakistani origin but live in Washington DC and plan to tour some of European countries. I often go abroad on business trips, but staying in brand-name hotels offering the comfort of home is not like touring the heart of that country. So I look forward to that- Hope you tour again and visit north of Pakistan; everyone, please let me know if you want to know about specific things or region in Pakistan and I would love to do so. axrafkhan@gmail.com

    Thanks,
