The wire mesh or high brick wall

can’t stop me ever , can’t tie me down

for I have  wings , I fear no fall

 This world is mine and the sky I own


TO blur or not to blur (Weekly Photo Challenge – Half and Half )


This week, share an image that has two clear halves, literally or figuratively. Show two people whose demeanor or personality complement each other. Or bring into balance two opposing visual elements — light and dark, color and its absence, sharp focus juxtaposed with blurriness.


Of Tea Cups And Tea Pots ( Weekly Photo Challenge – SYMBOL)


A humble tea set....

A humble tea set….

Last weekend we were taking a break from our regular busy routines to unwind and relax in another city close home. While we were all  ready and  set to paint the town red , I noticed this beautiful antique yet simple tea set in one corner of the Hotel lobby. And I was struck by not only its simple beauty but by the wonderful , beautiful memories it brought to my mind instantly.

A tea set for me is a symbol of refreshment and rejuvenation ; of sunny days and rainy evenings; of happy and fun conversations with my better half ( the tea is just an excuse 😉 ) ; of relaxed holidays and bird watching in the garden…

I am amazed as to how a humble tea set could trigger so many wonderful , positive and cheerful memories….so for me it is a symbol of optimistic, happy and carefree times!

P.S : Do you agree ? Do share with me your most favorite memories with this age old beverage… Any special stories..? feel free to share .

The door – weekly photo challenge (door)



The door stared at my face

A little grim and morose

A glittering golden lock

– like a jewel it adorned

I turned away from there

for I had a new door to find

One that would be more fair

One that would be more kind…..

A door that would welcome me

with an open mind from  start

One that would have no shimmering

locks dangling from its heart

Buddha – my muse ( Weekly Photo Challenge – Muse )

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Muse.”

In this week’s challenge , we have been asked anout our muse , something that inspires us always … Well . I think for me , it is undoubtedly the images and statues of Buddha. Each time I spot a  Buddha figurine, I cannot resist taking out my camera and clicking an image of it.

Those of you who have been following my blog since some time , will agree about my fetish. Here is the latest picture of Buddha , this time I did not step out of my house for it. I just shot them in my living room….
