On The Road of Karachi - #iGraphy

Past week hasn't been the brightest, as for my gadgets. My laptop's screen got cracked and it took forever to be repaired. As if it wasn't enough, my iPod's charging cord got malfunctioned. It was the third one that betrayed me (in a very technical manner) . All these tech-tragedies completely broke my heart. I couldn't even blog and I missed an #iGraphy post. S for sad.
B.U.T I am back this week and have a tons of pretty photos I took all around the city. I was working to get a photo to be submitted in a local photography competition but in between, I had a chance to take other amazing photos.
Let me help you explore roads of Karachi a little. 
None of these photos were taken still, yeah I was travelling but kept taking photos of locations I found capturing worthy. The weather was amazing. A little sunny + a little cloudy.

I wish I could have captured the details of that truck. Though it isn't even slightly as decorated as other trucks that happen to be in Karachi but still, it was huge and had funny phrases written on it. By funny I mean, cheesy romantic.
I took this photo as we crossed a bridge and it turned out to be a perfect candid. YAS A CANDID! I have never been so good at this whole candid photography game but I am eager to learn, I guess.
More buildings. These buildings are actually residential apartment buildings but they looked so rustic and retro. We were in the middle of a slight traffic jam on a bridge and I had a very little time to capture the whole scene.
Cadbury is great at putting their adverts all around the city, sarcasm intended. This bill board, well not exactly a bill board, was HUGE. But it looked pretty anyways.

It's always a great idea to re-look every small detail about your city. It makes me feel like a tourist (isn't it a good get away huh?) I bet you'll always find a new thing if you keep looking carefully among all every-day places or things.

Out of my serious photographer kind of spirit, I must report that college has been going great. Amazing, to be exact, The freshmen year is coming to an end and I am happy to call it a successful one. I don't hate math anymore, in fact I've been solving a lot on my own. Economics is still a pain, but only Micro Economics, I quite like Macro. It involves real life matters unlike Micro that keeps everything on scales and slopes and graphs that I hate the most. Yeah, that's the exact problem.


The highlight of my little photography world is that I got my first ever , professionally done , framed photo. It's for the same competition I've been talking about. So, a big huzzzzzaaahhhh for me!

Let's move forward to the link up. What were you up to in past week?
