Floating Beauty

Weekly Photo Challenge:Afloat

We share below a collection of photographs from our album that shows what afloat means to us. Enjoy! 🙂

1. The Floating City: Starting with an unusual way of expressing it; the floating lights in the night sky is the Queen of Hills, Mussorie as viewed from Dehradun.

2. Floating Fire: Ever heard or seen floating fire? These “Diya’s” (a small cup shaped oil lamp) as seen in a Buddhist Monastery.

Beauty and Blur

Weekly Photo Challenge: Blur IMG_2136

Quite often, images that are not taken intentionally can also produce beautiful effects. This photograph was taken with the purpose of a blurred background. But the absence of light on the focused image somehow created a completely blurred photograph which we found very much suitable for the current challenge. 🙂

Album of Love

Daily Post: I Want To Know What is Love

We each have many types of love relationships — parents, children, spouses, friends. And they’re not always with people; you may love an animal, or a place. Is there a single idea or definition that runs through all the varieties of “love”?

Love album

Love is no idea to be defined

Love is a flow of emotions refined

Love knows no condition

Love is a  wonderful expedition

Love is not false or true

Love is a string between souls two

Love is not an illusion

Love is a chemical fusion

Love without expectation

Love is boundless adaptation

Love needs no sacrifice

Love craves to satisfy

Love is an ultimate desire

Love will make you fly higher and higher.

Parents, children, spouse or friends

Just keep loving till the end

Person, place animal or thing

Love one and love all but never cling

An unmatched beauty so sublime

Love creates a music as melodious as the chime.

Ultimate Reward

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reward

…and we are back! On a funny note, our blog looks prehistoric after a long gap of two weeks. However, WordPress never disappoints its bloggers. So, here we are back again with our crazy and thoughtful delights for our fellow bloggers. 🙂

Call it a coincidence or a creative expression, without a second thought, we decided to share our Reward with our fellow bloggers. On 17th February, 2015, we set off on an unplanned journey which was infact a dream come true. We experienced snowfall. The most awesome part of our journey was driving through the snowstorm. The memories are relived as we sit to share the wonderful experience with you. Since it was our very first experience, there were mixed feelings of joy, wonder and fear. Somehow, we managed to take few snaps.

So, here it is! Enjoy the journey as much as we enjoyed it. 🙂

Snowstorms are storms where large amounts of snow fall. Two inches (5 cm) of snow is enough to create serious disruptions to traffic. Key to driving in snowstorm is to avoid using brakes and drive slow. Otherwise the vehicle would skid. Driving through the snowstorm was awesome. Thanks to the Almighty for a safe journey.

Excellent Symmetry

The Daily Post: Symmetry

Symmetry comes from a Greek word meaning ‘to measure together’. Love the way these two kids used their left and right brain in symmetry. 🙂
