Here’s a window to my environment

Enjoyed the warmth of this spring

It’s been over a week since we are back from Italy. To our surprise we came back to sunny and warm days. A short vacation was enough to amplify our workload. Anyways we managed both, our duties and personal time.We spent evenings in enjoying sunsets from different places and during weekends we got busy in hiking, chasing spring as we believe “no two springs or sunsets are the same

What’s the use of a fine house if you haven’t got a tolerable planet to put it on.~Henry David Thoreau

To cherish what remains of the Earth and to foster its renewal is our only legitimate hope of survival. Wendell Berry

Spring work is going on with joyful enthusiasm.~ John Muir

I am glad as from yesterday we are back to our default weather routine. It’s mostly wet, cold and grey and yet it’s spring. Even the public road administration has asked people to wait an extra week before changing their winter tyres if they haven’t done it already 😁😲

Have a great week!

Capturing fun moments with mediocre routines

No two walks are the same

You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each momentHenry David Thoreau

Spring is around the corner

Life is full of new experiences with a tag “conditions applied”. Some sees it some don’t. Here is my try to find some moments which may not excite the locals but to me yes and probably to some of you?

Adding a little to ordinary moments

There isn’t any such thing as an ordinary life.~ L.M. Montgomery

After a break we resume our daily walks. Walking in fresh snow is such an activity. Just that taking care of umbrella, camera and mittens require skills which I should learn😊. The surrounding looks new every time we pass by. Taking pictures is an addiction but some spots needs our attention and an image is mandatory. First I thought of making these images monochrome but then decided to keep them as they are. Hope you like them.

Behave respectfully at any religious place

In earlier times people would visit the religious places of their own belief. Times have changed and we see crowd everywhere. There is nothing wrong visiting places of worship and find some of the best art, history, archaeology and music of all time. In spite of one’s own beliefs proper etiquette should be followed depending on the place and their customs/rituals.

The following images are taken during our visit to an ancient Buddhist temple located in Asakusa, Tokyo, Japan. Sensoji is perhaps the most famous and the oldest Buddhist temple in Tokyo. I was amazed to see many messages for the “believers”. I present a couple of them.

When tea becomes ritual, it takes its place at the heart of our ability to see greatness in small things. Where is beauty to be found? In great things that, like everything else, are doomed to die, or in small things that aspire to nothing, yet know how to set a jewel of infinity in a single moment? ~ Muriel Barbery

Water to purify before entering the temple

I have always believed, and I still believe, that whatever good or bad fortune may come our way we can always give it meaning and transform it into something of value.~ Hermann Hesse

Lens artists photo challenge – Let me admit that I love the theme this week. If time permits I may have another post later this week.

Hike on one fine autumn day

Your profession is not what brings home your weekly paycheck, your profession is what you’re put here on earth to do, with such passion and such intensity that it becomes spiritual in calling.~ Vincent van Gogh

A late post: I wanted to share these images earlier in autumn but when I got time to be on WP a new challenge was waiting for me. I enjoyed my hike and the “mindful” landscape.

Hope you all are doing fine.

Stay safe and be kind.

Impact: Then & Now

I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape—the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show ~Andrew N. Wyeth

Everything you do has some effect, some impact.~ Dalai Lama



ख़ुश-नसीबी और बद-नसीबी का कोई पैमाना नहीं होता। 

बस लम्हों के फ़ैसलों का हिसाब सालों चुकाना होता है। 



In the recent times I have an on and off relationship with WP. It is difficult to be back with full swing once I am away for a certain time. I don’t know if it’s the same with the others as well.

Flight of fancy: Observing autumn sun

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.~ Dr. Seuss

Whatever you want, at any moment, someone else is getting it. Whatever you have, someone else is longing for.~ Laura Lippman

In current circumstances I am longing for sunny days. The declining day length and falling temperatures causing “raining leaves”. I wished to capture remains of the autumn but could hardly manage. Anyways, I was happy to be in nature for almost two hours.

Hope you are enjoying Sunday!
