Port Grand is the upcoming Food Street and Entertainment complex in Karachi. I had been trying to get permissions from Raania Durrani who is the director of Port Grand Culture & Arts (PGCA) and finally last Saturday when they held a pre-opening meetup I was allowed to take the pictures of this wonderful place. For this I want to thank Raania.
Port Grand has been in making for quite sometime now and finally it’s almost ready. Although the completion of the entire project will still take anywhere between 6 months to a year, but there are parts of it which I am assuming will be open to public soon, such as the Art Lane.
I would love to visit this place again for another round of photography, as one hour just wasn’t enough because this was my first visit and I was exploring the place as I went. But I had a great time exploring this wonderful addition to Karachi and can’t wait to see it in full flow once it’s completed. The only bad part of the shoot was the ISO performance of my D80. I only had 10 minutes left before the sunset, and I decided to increase the ISO and go handheld instead of dragging the tripod with me. Bad idea!!! Most of the pics turned out to be unusable because of the noise.
Anyway, here are some of the pics that I took during my hour long visit there:
