A Room with a View


Room with a View Posted by Hello

This is not Karachi but Dubai......Took this pic from my room in August '04 when I was travelling...

A fellow blogger suggested that since he reads my blog as a chronicle of life in Karachi that I should post some pics, so rest assured ejaz http://jazz.ipadder.com that i am going to give this a serious try.....the locale of my future photoblogs would be local...

i have to learn about photoblogging some more... it is not as easy to post pics as i thought. since i have had some success today, the next task is see how to post multiple pics.....

at the moment, the process is a bit cumbersome..i post a blog with a pic, then i edit the blog to add text....so bear with me till i overcome these teething problems.....

Tell about it - where is this?
Very interesting landscape - are those date palms? So geometrically planted.

yes, pretty well planned...unfortunately this is not Karachi but a picture of Dubai sea front taken from my hotel room back in Aug '04....a fellow blogger gave me an idea to post some pictures and this is the one i had with a nice postcardy feel...actually have been trying to test the photoblog feature of blogger but some fine tuning needed..hence sorry that i am still not able to figure out how to post a pic along with text...so bear with me so a little while....Naveed

Oh, Thank you so much Naveed bro for listening to my request. It's a very nice image. Apart from the technical criticism, which I am not worthy of delivering anyway, such images always remind me of the ever-present contrast in the world - The trees and modern buildings and their seamless blending into each other and yet distinct identities really made me always appreciate the "justice" nature did with itself and to man. I can't wait to see more of local images and reflections.
P.S. My Gmail's unable to 'search' your email id, which I am sure I must have had as my odd memory tells I did email you once or twice? Ah, I really feel like aging twice my actual age right now :(

Thanks for the explanation. Just reflecting,from my gardener's eye,the trees planted in these geometric patterns,and just one type of tree, make the landscape seem even more harsh.I'm glad this is not Karachi, I'd hate to see Karachi so devoid of life.

i respect both the comments. ejaz,yes we can appreciate the contrast between the two cities (Khi & Dxb) and yes (w)alter, indeed there is an obvious lack of a natural sense of things....one reason i went for this pic as the first one that i post is that, apart from not having any local pics of karachi, the more i use my pentax optio 555 camera, the more i love it..and it blows me away with its panaromic postcard feel and what i loved doing today is being able to compress a 2MB file to only 80KB, much more blog-friendly.....now you have me excited about the possibilities....

one of the most painful things during the morning commute is to drive infront of the american consulate and pass by some tree trunks, the heavy green shade chopped off by the local government earlier this year to prove their (in)competence for the sake of guarding the consulate staff...i am told one tree was more than 50 years old...is there a saying that the felling/falling of a tree is the most painful sound....in any case, i will be posting some more pics...
