A Glimpse of the Northern Areas of Pakistan...

...on popular demand! You will have to click on the thumbnails to see larger images. The camera I had at the time of this trip, was an extremely basic point-and-shoot model, hence, the unflattering colours (and it occured to me after the uploading exercise to "photoshop" them). There are some interesting things to note in the second and the second-last pictures. 





Also, two more pictures here.

I'm so glad you've all been enjoying the photographs.

Human being, bravo for asking! The second one's got a baby in the bag, who I think looks adorable. And the second last, if you notice closely, shows a niche carved in the glacier, for cooling drinks. This is quite common in our northern areas - placing bottles in ice or flowing water, since not everybody can afford electronics and of course, not all these areas boast electrical supply.

oh yes... amazing... i remember when we were kids our families did the same thing with the drinks and fruits when we went on a picnic... and boy the river not only kept them cold but i think added more taste and energy to them...

i love photos and paintings with such details and hidden stories...
love also your viewpoint toward life and your country...
