Love the world as your own self; then you can truly care for all things ~Lao Tzu
Green is a process, not a status. We need to think of ‘green’ as a verb, not an adjective ~ Daniel Goleman
The sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do ~ Galileo Galilei
Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads. ~Henry David Thoreau

These images are taken at the El Retiro park in Madrid during our recent visit. I would love to visit Madrid again and spend a day in this beautiful park.
El Retiro Park : Covering over 125 hectares and comprising more than 15,000 trees, El Retiro Park is a green oasis in the heart of the city. In it you’ll find all kinds of interesting monuments and gardens, including the Jardín de Vivaces, the Jardines de Cecilio Rodríguez (Andalusian-inspired classicistic gardens), the Jardines del Arquitecto Herrero Palacios, the Rosaleda rose garden and the Parterre Francés.
A note: When we came out of the metro station El Retiro, I wanted to take street shot, only to realize that I forgot to insert battery in the camera. Which was still in the charger at the hotel near Opera. 😦 😦 😦 One possibility was to explore the park and take pictures using our mobile phones but looking at my face, my husband suggested that we get back to hotel and bring the battery. Due to some maintenance work on the tracks between Sol and Opera it took almost an hour and half to get back to the same place.
Awareness is like the sun. When it shines on things they are transformed ~Thich Nhat Hanh
For Becca’s Sunday Trees theme.
For Lens-artists-photo-challenge I shall share my routine travel shots though earlier I thought of sharing my captures at cafes in Malaga. oops cafe shots have to wait now 🙂
Yesterday I travelled again and I realized these images show “my” routine moments. I couldnot resist showing them again. Hope you enjoy them.
A book in hand but my eyes are looking out for such cosy settings.
Not all shots are perfect.
My routine mistake due the “speed”. 1/nth second late and the focus changes.
The trees and the small boats are my favourite subjects when watching reflections.
One might not find them great but these are my real routine moments 🙂
This post is inspired by Becca’s Sunday Trees theme.
According to actual plan the theme for todays’ trip to centre was “street photography”. There were tourists but less than I thought. It was sunny but extremely warm 22C. I shortcut my tour just after some images but am not happy. When I was looking for possibilities, I saw a nice frame made by apple trees.
Hope you enjoy these images.
Inspired by Becca’s Sunday Trees theme.
I am happy to be part of Becca’s Sunday Trees theme and presenting two images of trees from Tokyo Imperial Palace garden.
