Reflection Pool

Wazir Khan Mosque is located near the Delhi Gate within the ancient Walled City of Lahore, Pakistan. The minaret reflects in the pool located in the central courtyard of the mosque.

Lengthening Shadows

This photograph was taken at Wazir Khan Mosque in Lahore, Pakistan. It was time for the late afternoon prayer. The sun was just appearing through the top of the archway casting a shadow of the man as he walked through the portal and into the sanctuary of peace. The lengthening shadow symbolizes man’s eventual death and resurrection.

Sanctuary of Peace

I took this photograph while passing through the main entrance of Badshahi Masjid in Lahore, Pakistan.

Mughal Splendor

The Naulakha Pavilion is a small rectangular building that was the summerhouse attributed to Shah Jahan. In the Urdu language, the word naulakha means 'worth 9 lakhs rupees' (or 900,000 rupees).

It's situated next to the Shish Mahal (Hall of Mirrors) in the northern section of Lahore Fort in Lahore, Pakistan. The pavilion, built in 1633, is built entirely of marble with a deeply curving roof in the Bengali tradition. The pietra dura ornamentation in the pavilion is considered among the finest in the world.

Diwan-e-Khass

The Diwan-e-Khass (private audience hall) is part of the Lahore Fort complex located in Lahore, Pakistan. Lahore Fort is made of white marble and was built in 1645 by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan. The photograph was taken about an hour before sunset, which made for an interesting outline of the dark interior columns and arches contrasting with the pinkish hue of the granite wall and columns in the background.

Colorful Sufi

I met this interesting character at Data Darbar in Lahore, Pakistan. Data Darbar is the tomb of Hazrat Syed Abul Hassan Bin Usman Bin Ali Al-Hajweri (Hazrat Data Ganj Bakhsh), the famous Sufi saint of Iran, where thousands of people come each year to pay their respects and to say their prayers. The shrine is visited round the clock by the devotees from all over the country. Data Ganj Bakhsh settled in Lahore during 11th century. He propagated the religious, spiritual, moral and educational dimensions of Islam in South Asia.

Pakistani Laborer

I met this crazy, energetic man in the Anderoon Shehr (known as Old City or Walled City) of Lahore, Pakistan. The man saw me with my camera and started posing for me. So I captured a couple shots of this man who was as dirty and grimy as the building in the background.
