I painted this while copying a painting by another artist whose link I can’t find anymore >.<

I’ll just sit here- All majestic like

So Fresh

That’s the first thing that came to mind when I saw this picture in my photography album. I wanted to post it to give a slight change to the winter pictures going around. This picture, like most I take, was from a moving vehicle with I think an iPad; though I usually use a phone.
Anyway this picture was taken from the motorway while travelling from Islamabad to Faisalabad, Pakistan.

The heavens and the earth

Not a perfect title but it’s what came to my mind. I took the picture from a moving car. It came out better than I expected.

Flies can be pretty too.

If in a state of mega boredom then,

Look to the skies. The skies never fail.

So yesterday I was stuck at academy for a good two hours. In the cold, with my hands freezing, my feet would have been too but thank God I was wearing boots. My phone wasn’t working, can you believe my luck? Anyway, so basically I was bored cause it was a Saturday and I was the only Einstein who showed up. Well there were some boys there but they were strangers so they don’t count. Plus they were studying.

So I started listening to songs on my phone and looked up, out of habit. It was a cloudless sky, boring.But then I saw swarms of eagles flying here and there. I started observing them. From experience I know the ones back home hate me. Even though I’ve tried to get them to like me, they’re stubborn. Coming back to the story, I noticed that the wing and tail patterns of these eagles were different from each other and, since I’d given my biology midterm that day, I wanted to note down my ‘research’. To study how the different phenotype’s benefited the eagle who had it. Survival of the fittest being the law and all.

I have a feeling my eagle friends back home told these guys stuff about me. I swear whatever they said wasn’t true, but these poor fella’s didn’t know that. Nor did they let me clarify. As soon as I took my notebook out to draw them as they flew overhead, they stopped flying over head. They all ditched me. The nerve of them. Stopping me from my dreams of being a biologist. But I can be stubborn too, plus I had time. Lots and lots of time. So I sat there, staring obstinately and I managed to draw them, with no help from them at all.

The moral of the story being, the skies never fail, though the ones in them might 😛 So if the eagles don’t like you, no hard feelings, I’d like to believe they don’t like anyone. And if the skies themselves fail you…..well then your doomed. 🙂 jk

Birthday Morning

The clouds on my birthday were awesome 😀 Totally boosted my mood and gave my hope that the day wouldn’t be that bad considering I might not get to see my friends.

They were a good omen I guess, cause the day turned out to be pretty awesome. (the pictures were taken from a moving car)

More Clouds

True, I post tonnes of cloud pictures, but what can I do? It’s their fault. They always look so breathtaking. 

Beautiful Clouds

These are pictures from a MOVING car so forgive the lack in quality. I was going to visit some relatives and on the way I just loved the clouds in the sky so I had to take pictures.

 

 

Mango Orchard

 

 

These pictures were taken ages ago but I never had the time to post them before now. These were taken in a mango orchard near Multan a city in Punjab, Pakistan. It was really beautiful and we had lots of fun there with our cousins. Everywhere you looked the trees were drooping with mangoes. They were green and later we were told that when you take the mangoes off the trees they’re initially green, then they’re put into boxes with a special chemical which after a few days ripens them and turns them yellow.

We went in June and since Pakistan is pretty close to the Equator the temperature was pretty high. BUT the trees provided so much shelter that the sunlight hardly touched us. It wasn’t even that hot until we left the orchard……So basically if you want a cool back garden, plant trees! Lol though you probably already know that.
