Photo Diary: Kuch Khaas Farmer’s Market

I finally got a chance to visit the Farmer’s Market at Kuch Khaas. For those of you who don’t know; Kuch Khaas is a center of Art, Culture and Dialogue and one of the most happening places to be if you’re into creative expression. Also, I had interned there, so the place holds a special space in my heart. It felt great to be back.

So the Farmer’s Market is a weekly affair where local produce is sold. And the food, the food just makes it so much more worth the visit. It’s like an explosion of flavor. You just have to go there once. I think I’m gonna be going back a lot. Continue reading Photo Diary: Kuch Khaas Farmer’s Market

Photo Diary – Abbottabad

The reason I wanted to edit photos as such is for the mere feeling of memories. It’s a place close to my heart, and my soul. The leaves, the trees, the grass, the fields, everything natural about it. It’s a small city, easy to love.

For those of you who don’t know, I spent five years at a boarding school. While i have talked about how bullied I was there, i found solace in loneliness, and nature. I grew up around it since my childhood, and I have this strange connection to it, like I just can’t let go.

So this is how I tend to see things. And I hope i can stay this way.

When you enter the place, my school, the building has this old vibe to it; the rock build, the vines, the old wood. It's just beautiful!

when you get to the buildings below, you see how immersed in nature everything is. Even the houses seem like they’re a part of the jungle.

When it’s saturday night, the students get to go out. When it was my time, I went into the fields and just lay in the grass singing to myself and looking up at the stars, sometimes the moon.

Some Shots: Suburgatory

Static life. Desi lifestyle mingling with the western electricity. Cars standing in the garages. Moms have nothing to do but gossip. Concrete walls absorbed in the trees. While the horses gallop in the fields surrounding this stagnant world.

Yes.

This is the Pakistani Suburbia. Miles away from the cities. Miles away from humanity…

Sometimes You Have to Love in the Moment and Enjoy it. Not Instagram it.

DSCN2093

I love where i live. But sometimes, I just like to absorb the view and bathe in the beauty. When you take a picture of a certain moment of beauty, you invade the moment. You don’t live in it anymore. It’s like you’re not in that dimension, and are trying to be in two places at once. It’s not good. Living in the moment is so pure, so human, so natural – taking a picture just might take all the fun away. For that one moment, for that one snap, you are not in THAT moment. And it’s just not worth it…
