Please excuse me, I had no time last week to catch new photographs so here is my contribution for the theme from my archieves of Pakistan.

The Dawk Banglow in Rama, Astore district was constructed by British in 1886. It was abandoned after the British rule was over but restored later in 1990s when tourism boomed in this area. After 9/11, when series of terrorism was brought in to Pakistan, the tourism diminished. So the chimneys of this Dawk Banglow were also sealed. Reason unknown. But this Dawk Banglow is no more in use but only maintained by the Public Works Department.

I like the strong colors of the wooden building against the surrounding trees and of course the chimneys over that, Inaam!

Good light and exposure control with nice sharpness and clarity.
POV and DOF are well done, and colors are natural.
Well done!

Have a nice weekend.

Best regards,

Cute little house and good contribution to Friday's theme. Love the paint job matches the trees and the grass. Good lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Hi Inaam.

An image high in sharpness and detail, the greens and red marry well together. i like the positioning adopted here with the amount of trees visible....such clean, crisp lines obtained from the construction of cladding, neatly seen and taken. tfs

Hi Inaam,
A lovely green wooden bangalow in this sharp presentation. The closed chimneys are well exposed. Nice green surroundings matching the building. The POV is agreeable and such a neat presentation.
A worthy entry to the theme.
My best regards,

Hi Inaam,
What a shame this old building has had to be closed.
It still has years of use to offer.
I would imagine the chimneys have been capped would be to stop animals getting in, then being unable to get out.

An unusual entry to the theme, but entirely appropriate.
