    Very nice picture,

    It seems altered though. No way is it this black everywhere else…

    It is seaview but what is this white foutain in the middle. Is this the expensive foutain everyone was angry about during the earthquake oct 2005?

    really beautiful….

    @sketcher: yes…this is THE fountain.

    Beautiful. If I am not mistaken , I think I have been here last year when I was in pak. Where is this place again?

    tariq…its not altered. the contrast has been merely adjusted. and as a result of the night and the focused lighting, automatically the colours get heightened.

    and yes this is the expensive foundatin that “everyone was angry about” :)

    this is the sort of sea view extension but towards the opposite side.

    is it going to affect the local weather ?
    cooler breeze along the beach…?

  16. Razi (unregistered) on January 19th, 2006 @ 2:12 am

    Wonderful picture.

    Jammie I wonder if its OK for you share a version with a larger screen resolution to save as a Windows desktop……for those of us away from our beloved city and miss it.

  17. Imran (unregistered) on January 19th, 2006 @ 4:21 am

    I second Razi’s suggestion – could you please share a higher resolution version of this figure. I would love to use it as a screen saver. I tried out the image above, and it looks too grainy. Thanks !

  18. sars (unregistered) on January 19th, 2006 @ 2:58 pm

    Thanx for the beautiful pic……yes somethings are beautiful …without any practical use….but what use are the rest of the paan stained walls of karachi?????
