To Catch a Kite

Stern

&

unmoving

as

unyielding

&

standoffish

as a mountain.

Overall a loner

and a

snooty

 curmudgeonly

grump.

So who could guess

that underneath

all that

bark

lay

someone

who

loved

a

bit of

fun

&

games

Purple tree

😀 😀 And another one too!

Bfly tree

So which kite is your favorite?

Thanks for visiting 🙂

WPC: Of Textures & Blooms

Such a lovely word – textures isn’t it? I can almost feel it between my fingers! Or even my lips, on my tongue…oops I forgot! This isn’t an essay on textures but a photo challenge 😀 Without any further ado, here are some of my favorite layered and textured photos.

SunsetSunset at Mumbai – the clouds and the sky come together in a bid to give the even uni-dimensional sky an artistic textured finish to a wonderful day.

MysoreI thought this photo was apt for the topic because of the many textures and layers to it and not just the fine work on the gopuram. And of course I couldn’t resist showing off the perfectly symmetrically branched tree 😀

HutCan you not feel the coarseness of this quaint refuge from the hot sun?

FullSizeRender(1)This is a section of the outer walls of the Amer fort at Jaipur which is meant to keep out the enemy. Yet there’s something beautiful and captivating about it  don’t you think? I wonder if they had specialists who focused on the beautification of ramparts?

KashmirAmazing what H2O can be right? 😀 Flowing water, floating clouds or rock solid ice.

PragueA random click of picturesque Prague. The lighter and darker shades of green, the brick roof, both grey and white clouds in a blue sky – sigh…

will come and go

you will go

your own way

do your own thing

but I will always

wait for you

Thank you

Hacked,

slashed

mangled

twisted,

crushed

maimed.

But

what you don’t get

is that you

have only made

me stronger.

Doppelgänger

I grew up hearing that each of us has seven other people somewhere in this world who looks exactly like us. Have you heard of it? Do you believe it? I am very skeptical about this theory until I found a tree doppelgänger half way across the world! Don’t believe me? Take a look.

If you are regular visitor to my blog (or home) you may have seen this tree right outside my window.

ViennaDoesn’t it look eerily similar to this one in Vienna?

You and I

will never meet

but

it is enough

to know

that our

roots

are anchored

on the same

earth.

Weathering storms

side by side,

together

for decades.

I forget

if that is you

Or me.
