Canvas of life, color and action

As i keep evaluating my personal website www.awaisyaqub.com hosted by SmugMug for better viewing experience. One key issue was with big watermarks on images which are embedded automatically when i upload images to gallery. Thankfully, SmugMug allows it to change whenever user wants, so i went ahead and shrunk the watermark to smaller signature in corner and disabled right click protection. This will allow visitors to save and share images quickly and enjoy the art rather than trying not to see the watermark.

Hope you will like the new title of website Canvas of life, color and action

Whirling Dome

I am sure the designer who conceived the idea of designing the Mosque had galaxies in his mind. Shah Jahan Mosque, tentatively on list of UNESCO world heritage sight was built by Mughal Emperor, Shah Jahan in 16th Century. visit the link for complete gallery, feel free to share this photo. http://www.awaisyaqub.com/Photography/Sindh/

A galaxy under the dome

Looking above in Shah Jahan’s mosque in Thatta, Sindh. Huge dome full of geometric patterns tied to complex structure surly conveys the message of depth often associated to galaxies. Mosque was commissioned by Mughal Emperor, Shah Jahan in 1647. Mosque has great heritage value for Pakistan and world.
