Badshahi Mosque and Food Street, Lahore

Having something of a phobia of heights, taking these pictures from hundreds of feet above the ground was a bit of a challenge for me. I look down from the first storey of a building and my head spins. However, for some odd reason, the beauty of the place somehow nulled my fear. The splendor of the view took center stage in my head, and the fear trailed in the background, like a minor nuisance. I was able to move towards the edge of the terrace at Cuckoo’s Den, my eyes locked on the incredible mosque. I momentarily forgot all about the height.

Just in case though, I made two of my cousins stand on either side of me who held me (in case I suddenly felt the urge to jump off the edge) and I clicked.

  4. I swear the last time when I was at Food Street I was talking of how I would love to get up there on Cuckoo’s rooftop and capture the mosque on camera from the heightened angle, that is, when I gain the possession of a decent camera.
    You’ve done just perfect and I feel no need to go up there now. That’s sad and good simultaneously πŸ˜›
    Great Work! Keep on invading unexplored territories I plan to, but can’t due to the absence of an army πŸ˜€
