Luxury

Every state of society is as luxurious as it can be. Men always take the best they can get.  ~ Samuel Johnson

I find luxury in every small moment of positivity!

  • First and foremost is some Sunshine …Next
  • Watching buds every seasonfunfoto_14may19_5
  • Capturing a good reflection.

  • Going on a hikefunfoto_14may19_4.jpg
  • Staying at a comfortable place while travelling ( these images are from Madrid trip).

After all it’s “luxury” to be alive and contended.

The streets of Malaga

Starting our walk at the fashion street!

Málaga’s history spans about 2,800 years, making it one of the oldest cities in Europe and one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. According to most scholars, it was founded about 770 BC.

If you are fan of branded items. This street has so much to offer.

I was caught up by the colours of the buildings and their fancy balconies.

This important cultural infrastructure and the artistic heritage have culminated in the nomination of Málaga as a candidate for the 2016 European Capital of Culture.

The painter and sculptor Pablo Picasso, Hebrew poet and Jewish philosopher Solomon Ibn Gabirol and the actor Antonio Banderas were born in Málaga.

Happy a wonderful week everyone!

Keukenhof in Spring/April

For lens-artist -photo-challenge, I am presenting four images taken from one place in Keukenhof garden. If standing on one point brings so much beauty and happiness, just imagine how much beauty the garden holds in it.

The April winds are magical,                                                                                                    And thrill our tuneful frames;                                                                                                  The garden-walks are passional To bachelors and dames                                          ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

The mind should be allowed some relaxation, that it may return to its work all the better for the rest ~Seneca

All images were taken in April 2018.

Walking around!

If you are seeking creative ideas, go out walking. Angels whisper to a man when he goes for a walk. -Raymond Inmon

The weather today was fantastic which insisted me take a stroll during lunch time. We clearly see spring signs. Instead of concentrating on distance covered I thoroughly enjoyed my time out in sun.
