The most eerie road in the world
The Guoliang Tunnel, located in Taihang Mountains China, is actually carved out of rocky mountainsis carved along the side of and through a mountain in China. The tunnel is located in the Taihang Mountains and is considered to be the most eerie tunnel in the world.
The tunnel which is 1.2 kilometres in length and about 13 feet wide and 16 feet in height is an initiative of the villagers of the Guoliang village who had been cut from the rest of the area due to the most inaccessible mountain. In 1972, a group of villagers got together, raised money from their meagre possessions to buy hammers and tools required to cut the mountain side to make a road. It took them five years to make the tunnel and on the May Day of 1977 (1 May), the tunnel was finally opened for traffic.
ON THE STREETS WHERE WE LIVE
Street photography is an art and not many people do it. Instead we generally focus on eye catching buildings and places - and forget the streets where ordinary people live. Herein under is a collection of photos taken from the streets we live, but ignore to capture the beauty of how ordinary people live, laugh and carry on despite poverty and trying tirelessly to make both ends meet.
These photos are courtesy Tahir Iqbal, an emerging photographer who has an eye to capture the usual and the unusual too. I came across his photos when he contributed to my Flickr group “Jalalspages Pakistan" and with due permission I am sharing these with my viewers.
I earlier on shared Tahir Iqbal’s photos with the caption of “Railway signs we grew up with.” His collection of photos is very vast, which I will keep sharing in future as well.
