Don’t Impress! Express!

Below are some of the photographs we thought of sharing with our fellow bloggers. Check what they have to express!

This is a challenge before us, to show what “express yourself” mean to us. This post is in response to The Daily Post Photo Challenge: Express Yourself.

We love to capture different moments in our life and find it exciting to express our thoughts through these random clicks. We made an attempt to express our journey of life through these photographs. So, fasten your seat belts and enjoy this journey through our head and heart ! ūüôā

1. Hunt for truth:

The oar as seen immersed in water has something to say!

Do not believe what you hear, do not believe what you see,

A smile on your face may not mean you’re free;

The actions we take are the reactions we face,

Do not judge, the truth lies beneath;

This is what we believe.

2. Surprises matter

IMG_1254

Life is full of surprises, good or bad;

Never stop learning, happy or sad.

3. Solve problems

When faced with problems, do not complain;

Look for alternative solutions, take a concrete decision.

4. Plan with open mind

Dream and plan with an open mind,

Follow the step you’ve designed;

If plans begin to fail, do not sigh;

The open mind will help you to fly! 

5. Mould to fit

Yesterday is history, tomorrow a mystery;

Mould to fit today, shape your destiny.

6. Adventure calling

Up and down, far or near;

Live your dreams, don’t you fear.

7. Free- flowing

IMG_0984

Life is not a race, reflect and see,

Be good, humanity is the key;

Among the masses you may be known,

But it takes everything to stand alone.

8. Emotional

IMG_1698

One, two, three, four, five;

Ready to taste the flavors of life.

Six, seven, eight, nine, ten;

Here and there we fall, but rise again.

Which Way!!

IMG_2004

This is the road we traveled on our way to Munsyari, Uttarakhand, India. This route to the beautiful Hill city is less traveled and not recommended for tourists. However, for crazy travelers like us, it is a challenge! The photograph was taken after we crossed this particular landslide point and we were startled when we could not actually see which way we traveled!

Be the change

The Daily Post: Be the change
What change, big or small, would you like your blog to make in this world? 

Change is something inevitable. And those who adapt to the changes survive. This has been the rule of this world since ages. However, change cannot and should not be imposed on anyone. Different situations and circumstances demand different rules.

Talking of this world and its people, a change is brought about by someone who thinks different. And those who think different will either be followed or criticised. Had we the power to change this world, we probably would not have been blogging here. We do not blog to bring about any change.

Yes, we have followers here in WordPress. They are our followers by their choice. They are those who probably like and enjoy our posts or get lost in the photographs we share. We love our followers because that gives us a sense of satisfaction, that we exist. This is a platform where we can be what we are- eccentric, stupid, crazy!

We are just like anyone else living in this world, with innumerable imperfections.  We make mistakes and learn from our mistakes. We are here to share our life; the good and even the bad, but trying as we do, to add a touch of positive vibe to make life look as simple as possible. We are one among those, struggling to create a life comfortable and suitable to live. We are here to make us feel good. We are glad to be part of the blogging community, learning everyday as we share our posts.

We are not here to change this world through our blog.  We are here to change us and be the change.

The Beauty of Black and White

The first thought that crossed our mind when we read about the topic for this week’s Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge:Open Topic was that, we can select any topic of our choice with no restriction. But then, this is just one way of looking at this topic. The word “Open” carries other profound meanings as well.

This is indeed a challenge!

Photo shops can easily create a black and white picture. ¬†What we preferred to bring to our viewers was something original. We finally collected some of our photographs that were in Black and White¬†and that could be related to the word ‘Open’.

The photographs we have shared were not edited and are in their original form.

Enjoy the real and original beauty of Black and White as we make an effort to relate it to the Open Topic.

1. The Passage 

( open: adjective- allowing access, passage, or a view through an empty space; not closed or blocked)

Clouds give a passage to the final rays of the Sun to reach the Earth before dusk. 

This photograph was taken in Bhimtal, Uttarakhand, India. An evening in Bhimtal. Very light shades of the blue and orange is also visible.

 2. Spread the Light

(open: verb- unfold or be unfolded; spread out)

Sunrays unfolds and spreads out as the Earth starts a new day.

This photograph was clicked in a cloudy morning, from Almora ¬†Uttarakhand, India. We could not resist sharing this picture. Observe how a red ball of fire can open itself turning white and spreading light. Cannot think of a better way to represent ‘Open’.

Beautiful sunset behind the hills-Almora

3. The Truth

(open: adjective- exposed to the air or to view; not covered)
We are open minded when we have the courage to face the truth or accept the truth. So, what is the truth about life?

The truth is revealed by Nature- “there is light after every darkness.”

This photograph was taken in Munsiyari. The sun is seen rising behind the Panchachulli peaks. It was an awesome view as we observed the Himalayan peaks turn black as the Earth was giving way to sunshine.

4. Outdoor

(open: noun- outdoors or in the countryside.)

This is a view of a beautiful evening of Connaught Place, New Delhi, India. Many of the buildings in this area are white and the evening makes it a perfect view of black and white. The Sun is visible as a white ball.

5. The Open Challenge

(open: noun- a championship or competition with no restrictions on who may compete)

Black mountains and White patches of clouds in the sky with the white ball makes a perfect picture for The Open Black and White Challenge !

Hope you had a wonderful journey as you traveled through the immense beauty of Nature and could listen to what Nature had to Open up with.  :-)
