Two Gujratis on two notes (Ghandhi -jee and Jinnah bai) - founders of two nations (India and Pakistan) now in hands of two Memons - Kashif Mukadam from Mumbai & Schahana Ekbal from Karachi. Shadi mubarak ho !

Subzi Mandi | Vegetable & Fruit market, Karachi

This is my favourite shot from yesterday's shoot with Raja Islam, a longtime flickr friend from Karachi. It is shot against the sharp sun of Karachi amidst early morning hustle-bustle of traders and load carriers.

For this shot, I simply turned dial and shot using silhouette feature.

Portrait: Boy, Rehri goth

We went today for a rafting trip. Khurram, Adeel and Zahid bhai were there as were other people not known to me (organized by Usman bhai). It was a pleasure trip with some good photo ops. This photograph is one of the best.

Chicken loaf by Ami (mom)

This is probably the simplest dinner cooked by my good mother. It has chicken, some vegetables and covered with tomato ketchup. And it requires specially cut, large loafs of white bread. That's it. And lots of boiled eggs too.
