Karachi – A latest view


Specially for those Karachiites who are not in Karachi. Took this one 10 days back. The image originally is a good 4MB file with 3000+ pixel resolution. KMB didn’t allow me that much so i got its resolution & quality down by good 40 percent but still the end result wont disappoint you. Click on the image to view it with normal resolution. Click here to download it to local computer first. (Right click & click on “Save Target As” for IE & “Save Link As” for FF). By the way did anyone notice anything underneath MY BANK board at right side?. Is he really walking or what. And can you guess where i was when i took this pic. This is in line with this post basically.

    Inclusion of HBL Plaza (at a little more acute angle) in the pic would have been better.

    any info on how the mcb building looks from the inside? any view from the 29th floor? should be quite good.

    Is this I.I. Chundrigar Road?

  12. Sufi (unregistered) on December 28th, 2006 @ 10:14 pm

    Tamed, yeah it is IIC.

    The grain in the bigger version adds a lot to the picture.

    MB: I EXTEND TO YOU MANY MANY THANKS for keeping the overseas-karachiites in mind. I think this is the first time I’ve seen a post on KMB esp. written for the homesick souls. REALLY appreciate it, thanks!

    Dil khush hogaya!
    AWESOME pic.

    its so ironic, just the other day, i was using google earth and I saw these angled parked cars but that black building was NOT there..

    wow.. thanks for putting my google sense in real picture. How old is that black building? I missed that area this year when I visited Pakiland but i will make sure and visit this view when i visit again in coming sring.

    Isn’t it weird how out of place the MCB tower looks in that picture? Its good to see development in Karachi. Props to the architects: ASA.

  20. MB (unregistered) on December 29th, 2006 @ 8:35 am

    First of all thank you everyone for the appreciation. Well this pic was taken from State life building.

    One thing more, i shall be hopefully trying to get a panoramic pic as well. Let’s see how it goes.
