Pakistan under a Starry Starry Night

Pakistan is a country rich in natural beauty. But its people have aesthetics too when it comes to decorating building and monuments while celebrating various national days and other occasions. Herein under is a selection of buildings and monuments artfully decorated and aesthetically lit under a starry night.

And when talking of a starry night, one is reminded of the famous song Vincent which was written by singer Don McLean as attribute to the beautiful painting “The Starry Night” by none other than the famous painter Vincent van Gogh. Although the song is titles Vincent, it is commonly remembered and referred to as Starry Starry Night because of its opening line.

The song is a wonderful tribute to the artist and has memorable lyrics. So listen to the song by clicking on the play button and then scroll down slowly the photos to enjoy the nightly mood and appreciate both the tribute to the painter and tribute to those photographers who composed and preserved these beautiful photos.


I have not limited the number of photos to 10 so that you continue to listen to Vincent and keep enjoying the photos down below.
