I have been thinking about this challenge a lot, & finally have decided to go with this one , my little cousin , who is our best target for experimenting new looks , & the best part about it is , she looks adorable in all …
This was technically more challenging for me , as my Nokia mobile is losing its capturing ability in low light.
Still I managed to click a few from my terrace , that was the best way to capture the scenario around , which I won’t have been able to get on my walk in neighborhood , it was a beautiful scene to enjoy so many birds on one tree, and more kept on coming , & all of a sudden in one minute they flew away …..
and this another one is of the sunset , a few kites can still be seen …
This is a sketch from one of my favorite novel , Wanderlove by Kristen Hubbard
It’s amazing to me , this human nature , of always looking forward to things , no matter how small they are , like looking forward to meet an old friend , or looking forward to book launch , or even award show …..
Our mind is always seeking for things in distant future , knowingly or unknowingly .
Everyone has someone or something in their life that keeps them looking forward to another day ….
and I am really looking forward to the next theme
Kiss , is something you do out of intense love , its a way of expressing love , when words fail , just like photographs , they speak more than 1000 words could. This is an amazing similarity between both a Kiss & a Photo. This is a perfect challenge theme. I was a bit confused as in which one to go with , but finally I chose this one.
My little cousin , who has a thing for bunnys , lolz, and when she sees one ,even a toy , she is like kisses & all , it is her way to express her feelings , how much she adores them. So this one is for her innocent love , she doesn’t even know she is expressing her love for them , & makes it seem even more cute ^_^
my sweet little golu <3
Home is the special place where you come back to , its special , coz you designed your own little place , you have all this pre-defined places for the things , even in a mess you can locate it , dis is my special corner , which defines home for me ….
My favorite place in this world , is my room , my home ,
This week ‘s challenge is quite interesting , & as soon as I saw this photo , the first word that popped in my mind was UNIQUE , the photo is creation using photo manipulation by
The mummified zombies, bound endless strands (cords) fate describes the situation of awaited death & miserable life.
While the little girl with violin sitting on chair has bit static effect with it , grounded roots , yet feet not touching , like its waiting for the shield of shoes , before she enters the real world.
On the other hand Robot woman , is the complicate part to explain , she is yesterday or could be the tomorrow , but acts like the other side of the same coin of zombies .
The real meaning is still in the eyes of the viewer ….
I have always loved the idea of LOVE , & yet never lived it , Its like walking on the beach & looking at your own reflection, coz the other half of you lies beyond that seas , I think, that I ll meet someone one day, who would possesses the eyes that I never had , but always needed; the vision to see backwards and forwards and all around, the other wing that I need to complete my flight. And I think it can just happen, suddenly, without explanation! And then I think, it would be good to keep that person, I’ll always have those eyes, and always have two wings.
So I just want to say him , whoever he is , wherever he is right now , I don’t know you , but Love will find us & than our journey together will begin coz ,
My love for you is a journey;
Starting at forever,
And ending at never

Reflection of the greenery in the water ~ Shammee
This photo was captured at a nearby village , where rain water got collected & the nearby greenery just fit in perfectly ,
Its beautiful how such nature’s glimpses are found at such offbit places . I really like to travel at such places , where there is this utter calmness in the atmosphere & you feel such a peace of mind.
Reflection of your own state of mind can be discovered at such places ……
