A walk in the garden: chasing colours – blue and green

People observe the colors of a day at its beginnings and ends, but to me it’s quiet clear that a day merges through a multitude of shades and intonations, with each passing moment.~ Markus Zusak

Although I don’t know much about anything, I know that I have a story. I know that it is not over. There are shades and shadows of adventures and people and wild new places … ~ Emily Barr

But we are running out of colors,” said Mr. Violet, intervening.
“That cannot be the case,” said Mr. white. “There are an infinite number of colors.”
“But there are not that many names,” said Miss Taupe.
“That is not possible. A color must have a name.”
“We can find only one hundred and three names for green before the color becomes noticeably either blue or yellow,” said Miss Crimson.
“But the shades are endless!”
“Nevertheless, the names are not.”
“This is a problem that must be solved. Add it to the list, Miss Brown. We must name very possible shade.”
~Terry Pratchett

Life in colour: purple

Like a snake sheds its skin, we are capable of getting rid of assembled habits, creating space to call matters into question. Instead of the Shakespearian ” To be or not to be ” we could favor ” to become or not to become”. By “becoming”, we challenge the range of possibilities in our life and go beyond the merely “being”. We can retreat, then, from the imprisonment of a deadly routine, acquire an identity and develop our personality. ~ Erik Pevernagie

People die from lack of shared empathy and affinity. By establishing social connectedness, we give hope a chance and the other can become heaven. ~ Erik Pevernagie

The landscape affects the human psyche – the soul, the body and the innermost contemplations – like music. Every time you feel nature deeper you resonate better with her, finding new elements of balance and freedom ~ Nikos Kazantzakis

These landscapes images are taken during our walks in Covid lockdown. We tried to be in nature as much as possible irrespective of the weather. I say it again and again, “Nature never ceases to amaze me”.

My lens journey…

To begin: year 2014 when I started this blog

The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. Lao Tzu

I started noticing my surroundings: Mobile phone shot
On the mountains: A Canon Power Shot A510

‘Life is like a camera. Focus on what’s important. Capture the good times. And if things don’t work out, just take another shot ~ Ziad K. Abdelnour

In 2015 I got my entry level DSLR Nikon camera which initiate my photography journey. I still use the same.

To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place…I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them ~ Elliott Erwitt

I started to go on hiking to get a better view/capture
I got interested in reflection and abstract photography
I started to enjoy outside view while travelling

Positive thinking is more than just a tagline. It changes the way we behave. And I firmly believe that when I am positive, it not only makes me better, but it also makes those around me better ~Harvey Mackay

I met fantastic people on WP who have directly or indirectly influenced me to cultivate contenment and optimism in my life. Also to appreciate my surroundings.

Currently I am learning about minimalism…

Its the not the Destination, It’s the journey ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
