Look a bit closer

We have close to 2500 photos from our trip.  I am looking at them one by one.  Even if some are not technically perfect, they are wonderful memories.

While staying at the Taj Falaknuma in Hyderabad, we took pictures of the scenery, panoramas of the city, glimpses of the neighborhoods around us.  Urban areas are covered with haze, or pollution, and a lot of the pictures are a bit disappointing, although true to reality.  They look like this:

I checked other images, zoomed it, and smiled.  In the midst of those hazy pixels, I now see life, kids, families, cricket players, laundry.  The picture above, after careful scrutiny, unveils these:
