Truck Art

Decorating trucks in Pakistan is an art form. Paint, reflective tape are common materials used. See for yourself.

I see you … Not so candid

Loved the bond between the couple. Enjoying the place, tea and biscuits. But the lady noticed me. Said nothing though. I was actually shooting my niece on her wedding day.

But there is another picture within the picture. Again good bond between a young couple. I wonder what the guy is doing:

Not so shy kids

Not every kid is shy as the one in my previous post. Some enjoy being photographed, even by strangers.

And this one even made a victory sign:

Shy Kid

Requested this kid for a photograph. He agreed but turned his face away from the camera:

I encouraged him to smile and look into the camera and was half rewarded:

Surma

Kohl is called Surma in Urdu. It is traditionally made by grinding a compound of Antimony and is quite popular among the ladies (older ones at least) as an eye makeup. As a kid I also used to apply surma to my eyes.
Got hold of these guys while testing the lens outside my house.

I love his face and the way he has groomed himself…well kept beard, hair with some gel applied and of course Surma. Well defined features too.

His friend:

Street Testing Zeiss 85mm Sonnar Lens

I recently purchased a C/Y mount Zeiss 85mm sonar lens and to use on Fuji XE1. What a lens!
Some street shots just outside my house.

The fellow did not object but was a bit confused. He is a carpenter by profession and makes doors and windows for the houses.

Even on second attempt he was confused.
