The taxi driver stopped the car few meters before a bus stop. We were in trasfer from Kathmandu to Moscow, had only a night in Karachi and wanted to get some cash in the dead of the night. The driver led my friends to an ATM. I guarded the vehicle and was trying to catch night pictures of famous Pakistany buses when one of the passengers came out of the bus, and told me that criminality in this town was so huge that my camera would be confiscated by some gangsters.
Don't know whether to believe it or not but this snapshot was the last :-)

The picture seems a little tilt, but is so nice that is not important. The light and colour and the composition are really good.
And the subject is great. I think that is also fun.
Thanks for share.

A bit tilted but doesnt matter at all. Fantastic warm feeling here and an exotic composition.

Very good shot indeed. Good work with the nocturnal light and very attractive bus in front. Good dynamism.

I like the tones in this photograph Sergey. The juxtaposure of lights and colors is just amazing. If I lived in India or Pakistan, I bet I would have to wear sunglasses even at night to stand all that brightness and light.

This is one of your best shots and I like the slight tilt in the frame. It makes the photo so dynamic. Also, the sharpness of the subject, the intricate detail, the contrast of bright light on the vehicle and the dark, eerie background have produced such a powerful effect. Just awsome.
Thanks for sharing.
