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. 🙂

The Flower Band

DSC_4392

Few months back, we visited a Nursery to purchase some plants for our small but sweet garden. While we were looking around, this flower just happened to catch our attention. This amazingly beautiful flower looked somewhat like a ‘Rakhi’. For those who are not aware, Rakhi is a band tied by sisters on the wrist of their brothers on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan.

We were utterly amazed to see a real Rakhi! As told to us by the florist, the local name of this flower is “Rakhi Bail”. 

We found this to be the perfect picture for Jennifer Nicholewells’ One word photo challenge: Indigo.

A New Day

A sunrise behind Sam Desert, Jaisalmer, Rajasthan, India.

Everyday is a new day,

A new beginning that tries to say;

Be as happy as you can be,

Be the change you want to see;

Keep it simple, keep it clean,

Live the life that you always dream;

Where there is a will, there is a way,

Be thankful to the Lord while you pray.
