The Daily Post Photo Challenge : 2017 Favorites

It is really difficult to choose a favourite photo from the hundreds of photos taken this year. But two photos came to mind as soon as I read what we had to share.

I am in my daughter’s home in Germany. And I have been experiencing snowfall for the first time. Some days ago, early morning I raised the window shutters and saw everything covered with snow. The street lamps were on and their lights shining on the snow changed the place into a magical fairy land. That scene will always be a part of my life.




The Daily Post Photo Challenge : 2017 Favorites

By Lakshmi Bhat

I am a person who believes there is not enough darkness in the world to extinguish the light of a small candle. We live in a small place in South India. I love reading, blogging, stitching, traveling, photography, listening to people and many other things which make life so very nice and interesting. Blogging is a fun experience, it has brought me into contact with people in different parts of the world and it is good to read about their everyday life. In spite of the differences there is a sameness which is fascinating. I have learnt and am learning something everyday. I have learnt to write haikus. I enjoy combining the thought and the number of syllables. I have always read books and I was happy to write short fiction. I had thought I would not be able to do so. Stream of Consciousness and photo challenges are fun too. Yes, there is so much in life that is sad and that hurts us. Many a time I wonder why life is so unfair to so many. We all have problems in life but the problems of many seems unbearable. This makes me feel so helpless. It is not possible to help everyone but we can do our bit, we can do something to help some in whatever way we can. Twice a week I used to go to a home for the mentally challenged . But I have not gone there since March 2020. I will start going there again but I do not know when. There have been many challenges in life and we have faced them with a positive approach. Our grandson and granddaughter have made life so much more richer.


  1. That first snowfall is always magical. How nice that you were able to capture it. We have snow here ( South Ontario , Canada) and I love it over Christmas and then…..that’s enough. But the winter here goes on for quite a lot longer.

    1. Yes, in my place we have our monsoon season from June to October 😊 If it does not rain we worry, our country is so dependent on the rains. And when it goes on raining we wonder when it will stop. 😁 Human nature !!
