15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Mobile
Among the Locals at Lok Virsa, Islamabad

Telling the story of Islamabad must begin with showing the world its "merkaz" lifestyle. In this photo, I was strolling the Lok Virsa museum site, when I looked down and realized the vibrancy of the world a few steps from my location. Children, mothers, and shop keepers enjoy a day outdoors - a rare occurrence for many.
