‘Sit in reverie and watch the changing colour of the waves that break upon the idle seashore of the mind.’ – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The Arabian Sea and family and the waves:))
“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. ”
Ripe black pepper.
These photos are in the Home for the Mentally Challenged. I go there every afternoon, five times a week. Our festivals are celebrated by all living there, the teachers and other staff, with great Camaraderie.
‘ Faces are endlessly fascinating to photograph, and almost every photograph I’ve taken of a face has surprised me in some unexpected way. ‘
My father-in-law with his grand daughter and great grandson, the expressions on their face is beautiful:)
My mother telling a story to her great grandson, his expression of concentration:)
” 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 🙂
Sunlight streaming in through the boulders.
‘ 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.
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.
