Travel Theme : Spice

“This time of year is all about spices, from warming mulled wine infused with cinnamon and star anise to clove-studded roasts and gingerbread cookies. So I decided to spice things up with a few spice-inspired photographs. ”

Travel Theme : Luminous

” Are you ready to shed new light on this week’s travel theme? If you would like to join in (everyone’s welcome!)”

” Life is not a series of gig lamps symmetrically arranged; life is a luminous halo, a semi-transparent envelope surrounding us from the beginning of consciousness to the end.” – Virginia Woolf

Luminous – Softly bright or radiant

The sunlight streaming down made the place luminous 🙂

Travel Theme : Frame

‘ I hope you’re in the frame of mind to come up with your own interpretation of this week’s theme.’

Last week, we had been to a beautiful and serene temple of Lord Ganapati. This small temple is surrounded by huge boulders, which are natural formations. About 600 years ago, a king built walls around the idols. The idols are much, much older.

These boulders frame the sunlight streaming in.

Travel Theme : Below

Early this week we had been to this beautiful temple of Lord Ganapati, in a small hamlet, not very far from our place. The small temple is set in the space below huge boulders, they are just resting against each other. We climbed above the boulders and were delighted to see the river, the paddy fields and trees below and away from us.
