A Photo a Week challenge : Peaceful Place



Our small town is located on a hill. One end of this hill is called EndPoint. For me this is a very peaceful place. We can see the Arabian sea in the distance, the river Swarna flowing towards the sea. There is peace and quiet here. We used to go there at least four times a week for our evening walk.  Waiting to go there 🙂


Walking around the lake in our place is another favourite place. Looking at the sun set on the lake and feeling the fresh breeze brings peace to the mind.


Venugopala temple and the park in front of it is another peaceful place in our town.

“Peace comes from within.  Do not seek it without.”

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. Due to the pandemic I could not go to the Home for the mentally challenged for two years. I had been going there since 2011. I have started going again. I was happy that some members remembered me :) All of them are an important part of my life. There have been many challenges in life and we have faced them with a positive approach. Our grandson and granddaughter have made our lives richer.


  1. Such beautiful photos. I feel more calm just looking at them. Thanks for sharing them I really enjoyed looking at them. My favourite was the photo of the river. It reminds me my own childhood home where I lived near a river. Once I was old enough I would go down there to play or spend time with friends. No matter what difficulties were happening in my life, I always felt more peaceful after spending time there. Years later I would take my own son to see the same spots.

  2. Such peaceful and beautiful places, Lakshmi. I can certainly imagine they are special places to spend time. I love spending time in the woods and by the river – we have our special family places there. I have felt fortunate in these lockdown days that we are allowed a daily walk and can still enjoy the natural landscapes in our local area.
