Hello everyone. It’s been a while since I played any photo challenge and even though it’s not exactly mid week, here are some photos for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge. I know Cee won’t mind, besides she’s the one who instigated me to have some fun and what else could I come up with but trees and more trees for the challenge. 😀

There were a couple of more trees but I desisted from biting off more from your precious time. 😀 Thanks for visiting. Have a wonderful weekend.
This post is in response to Terri’s Sunday Stills photo challenge. This week’s theme is glass. And since I see the best scenes through the glass while travelling I jumped at the chance to share a few unedited raw pictures.

“When life gets blurry, adjust your focus.” From the internet
Life had got blurry and came back here to find focus. Although officially it says I have been blogging for 7 years, I have been mostly absconding for the past 2 years. Hopefully I will be more regular now.
At least that’s the plan.
Yet, just like I didnt plan to start (or restart) blogging, life is what happens while we make plans 🙂
Here’s to waiting and watching for what life has in store for you, me and the rest of the world…
And here I am with some more photos for another challenge hosted by Debbie at Travel with Intent. The prompt this week is Lines
So let’s see what I can cull from my collection – are you game 😉
Don’t you think it is appropriate to start this journey at the airport with its numerous airlines? 😀 Especially as the possibilities are endless. Care to join me and check out some noteworthy lines? After all someone has to make sure I stay in line 😉
A house arrested in time.
Once upon a time, I lived in one such home, just two doors away…
…where the once irrepressible dancing gushing Ganga now flows dull disapproving and unsmiling.
I am trying to convince myself that these trees were past their safety date…
The world’s largest sundial at Jaipur – the famous Jantar Mantar. I have always wondered about the steps leading to nowhere. Perhaps they were used by the astronomers to touch the sky to set the time. What do you think?
At the Amer Fort, Jaipur, even the mountains are aligned 😀
From the deserts of Rajasthan I now take you to the shore line 😀 I have almost grown up with this textbook image of the Shore Temple in my history books.
Since Indian weddings are quite in the fashion these days, a glimpse into the intricate mehendi lines. The neat orderly lines are in contrast to the…
Bindaas crazy lines 😀
Thanks for visiting and do let me know your favorite snap. Surely you liked one?
Recently I came across a really cool photo challenge hosted by Proscenium at Friday Follies. It involves submissions of any kind of sign, flyer, ad etc might or might not, be intentional or unintentionally, a mistake or could be interpreted the wrong way, misspelled, be a double entendre or just outright hilarious.
I have been sitting on just the one for such a challenge and here it is!
Sometimes it pays to be stuck in a traffic jam!
Umm but technically wouldn’t ‘make up’ be considered adding….?
Oh well. Just in case anyone is interested details are right up there 😀
Hola people! I am terribly excited to be participating once again in Cee’s photo challenges. I didnt know how much I had missed them until now 😀 Thank you Cee! This one is a black and white challenge on the topic of circles and curves. Scroll down to see what I dug out from my archives – up to you to find the curves and circles. 😉
Starting with a demon mask to ward off any evil eye 😉
Moving in on a stationary bike 😀
Some shiny musical curves
A choosy guitarist, surely you can find a couple of curves?
An English breakfast spread (from Dublin courtesy my lil sister and our friend)
A traditional Indian (more specifically Bengali) fishy meal served on a massive brass plate.
And here’s the original version at Rupali’s request! Did it help or worsen your craving? 😀
And end it with a finger-licking scrumptious butterscotch cake
Thank you for visiting! Do let me know which was your favorite shot. Have a super weekend.
This week’s photo challenge is about showing something twisted. So let’s see how twisted one can get…
Twisted metal rods that dot the rural landscape
Fed up with the twisted eyesores, nature takes things into her hands – when you can’t beat them, join them!
