This truck is known as "kekra" , basically it is a second world war american truck used by locals of "Thar desert" for transportation . its an excellent off road vehicle and travels very easily on the sandy tracks of the desert and it can carry huge load. I could not capture it perfectly because when i took the shot i was travelling in a bus.

You are right ... not a perfect capture but I like it for the fact that there is sooo much going on here. And it really gives off the feeling what is is like in Pakistan. Very well documented. Thank you for sharing.

Gosto desse angulo, ele cria uma perspectiva bem ampla, bela e informativa, que alada as belas cores e contrastes cria uma composição muito agradável.
