POINT BLANK: THE LABI HOUZ

Bukhara (Uzbekistan / Central Asia), an oasis along the historic silk road.

The Labi Houz is the name of the area surrounding one of the few remaining hauz, or pond, in the city of Bukhara. The ponds acted as the city’s principal source of water.

Nowadays it’s a wonderful place where people meet each other, strolling around, chatting with each other and having a cup of tea. A delightful place to chill.

  3. Ohh, Markus! Again I don’t know if you only go to such happy places or all these people are happy because they see you. 🙂 This is wonderful, how you approach them and not intrude and just show what you see but also not, and how you all just are, they and you and your camera in one happy dance. ❤

      • This is the best way. Looking around and soaking up the atmosphere, only with your camera, not just eyes. 🙂

        • …I love to do that in that way. It gives you the best chance to feel the athmosphere around you. 🙂

  4. Ich finde diese Bilder von dir großartig! Sie geben tolle Eindrücke über die Kultur der Einheimischen, die im Übrigen sehr herzlich und aufgeschlossen wirken!

    • Die sind auch wirklich sehr aufgeschlossen. Es ist auch wunderschön entspannend sich tagsüber und abends an dieser Wasserstellen aufzuhalten. In dem Restaurant dort haben wir auch gegessen. Lecker!! 🙂
