I was just checking out my newsfeed when I came across this line, “Habib University is more like Aesthetic University”. Well, OKAY. That’s legit but instead of taking that as only a fanboy remark, I investigated if that is true and I found these instagrammers who’ll literally make you jealous of HU’s ultra aesthetic architecture.
How can I even begin this post without mentioning Iqran? This boy literally gave me a hard time because I wanted to post all of his work and selecting a few wasn’t easy task. I still tried to flood this post with as many pictures as possible. In fact, it won’t be wrong to say that I made this post only to highlight his work. Yes, I am biased but it is justified. I mean, just LOOK at his work.
Our very own SSE professor, Dr. Anzar Khaliq has quite an active Instagram account where he frequently posts good pictures of the campus.
When I was contemplating whether I should enroll in HU or not, I just ran a search over Instagram to have a glimpse of campus life and there I found a crazy instagrammer, literally posting mundane things about her time at the campus. It really helped me gain a perspective on how my life will be at HU as a student. Here are some from her collection of 4,000 pictures on Instagram.
Okay, so I was on my way to class today, and I met this really nice pigeon. I ‘saw this shot’, and I asked the pigeon to stay still, and the kind old thing did so. Nicest pigeon ever. Because he’s a Habibi pigeon xD #HabibUniversity #habibi #habibibreak #pigeon #vscocam #clouds #HUspaces #HUSummerSchool #HUPioneers
Light: Wait for it to cut you. It’ll be beautiful I promise. For when the lights cuts across us, It lights up parts of us, Which we may never have bothered to see, Or feel, Or be. Light envelopes you, With yourself. From the warmth, To the glow, It’s you. #HabibUniversity #HUSpaces #urban #urbanscape #pakistan #architecture #light #poem? #mushbaphotographs #mushbawrites #light
This guy is only here because he’s my best friend and since I don’t regularly pretend that I am a good person I can keep him in this list and prove it. Besides that lame introduction, he’s the lord of aesthetics. He tries very hard to be tumblr-esque and often times he doesn’t fail. Head over to his account to see the real action on the #HUspaces because he captures more than what the place actually offers. I hope I am making sense here, if not then just check it out.
I know this is super-narcissistic of me to add myself in a list I am curating but I’ve some good pictures on my feed. Pardon me for being so self-obsessed.
That’s it for now. There are many more good photographers at HU but their accounts are not public hence I can’t brag more about my campus. This was also one of the many reasons I had to put myself in this list.
If you think, there are any Instagrammers from #HUFam who have some great shots of Habib University then comment with the username below in the comment section, I’ll be gladly revising the list.
