Prefer learning through observation than judging

Life is full of uncertainties.

Your’s and mine.

Clear picture is not always possible!


Start to observe and learn,

maximize time in own improvement.

minimize time in marking others.


Exactly after a week it was possible to visit the other half of the garden. Weather was fine but with lot of wind. I was happy to be able to try various shutter speeds. There were more wild flowers. We shall have more flowers by the end of June. I managed to a get a slice of yummy carrot cake before the cafe was closed. No photo though.

Do you remember this house

Would you like to live here?

A little confusion kept me away

I hope all is well with my fellow bloggers and all are enjoying weather in their respective regions. We are enjoying warm spring days. I was able to work in my garden.

I have been quite regular on WP in the recent past but then in April I published only 5 posts including this one. There were many factors but the one which ignite the fire of confusion was the red mark on the storage space I saw on April 1. It looks like it was full, at least at that time. I spent considerate amount of time in thinking and rethinking. I decided to create some space by deleting a number of posts. I even thought of starting a new blog and archive this one.

The time I was spending in the virtual world reduced significantly in the past couple of weeks. I am back with a plan and for now I shall keep this blog. Spring is inviting and there are possibilities of future travel plans.

Here are most of the colours from my surroundings, captured during one usual hike.

Images with captivating Bokeh are Challenging

Summer and autumn provides ample opportunity to practice photography, especially practicing bokeh. I was lucky to get some nice shots in spring as well. The source of light and our position makes the background interesting but for me getting a bokeh in a monochromactic setting is quite a challenge.

Crocuses aren’t supposed to go unnoticed

The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive, you will see it ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly our whole life would change. ~Jack Kornfield

Jo’s Monday Walk

Weekend 135

A piece of land, actually a small burial ground of 12.7 acres in the city centre turns into a crocus field every year during spring. In distant past this place was used to play bowling on Blue Monday (the third Monday of January ) every year, it was a tradition. Later in 1837 it was converted to a cemetery. During the cholera epidemic of 1848–49, the cemetery was expanded, but received its final design around 1860. Ole Bull (a Norwegian virtuoso violinist and composer), and Frederik Meltzer ( a representative at the Norwegian Constitutional Assembly at Eidsvoll in 1814 who is best known for designing the flag of Norway) are buried here. The cemetery was closed as a burial ground in 1919.

To give you the idea about how close I had to go to get the above images.
