I spent over two months in Pakistan last year and took tons of photos ~ it’s just too easy there to get great pics. The people are so photogenic and their daily routines are so full of stories. In the Fall of last year, I was contacted by this group requesting to use a few of my images to help tell their story about Lahore and its infrastructure. The part on Lahore begins at around 4:03 and my images come after a small video clip. At the bottom of the youtube video, all contributors are credited and the link to my name takes you straight to the pics they used. Always humbled to contribute to global programs whenever I can. ~ Peace.

Street art and graffiti are illegal here, so, rarely will you see non-commissioned art on public wall space. Interestingly enough, sometimes when you do, you see that someone is channeling their inner Banksy …

IMG_5640IMG_5684And down a narrow alley, I came upon a camel for Eid…IMG_5676IMG_5673IMG_5689I’ve found Pakistanis to be warm-hearted and these “strangers,” more often than not, have a camera-ready smile anytime, anywhere.IMG_5685IMG_5644“Chana Man.” Selling chana from troughs in the Old Quarter. Delicious, traditional Pakistani breakfast cuisine. IMG_5645IMG_5691A misconception probably held by many ~ to never walk down narrow alleys in a Pakistani neighborhood, without knowing what awaits you at the end of the path…BUT, I did just that. Several times. This is what I found. Warm, smiling, gentle people not even questioning why I was there. Just welcoming. You’ve GOT to come to Pakistan ! IMG_5694IMG_5692IMG_5712Life happens and we keep moving along… IMG_5708Warm roti. YES.IMG_5710IMG_5714The man above smiled and gestured to me as he passed by, to please take a picture. I happily obliged. What a sanguine moment. IMG_5713IMG_5717Delhi Gate, one of six remaining historic gates in the Walled City of Lahore. It faces eastward in the direction of Delhi, India. Back in the Mughal era, this was the main gateway to Lahore. The gates were closed and locked every evening. IMG_5716
