Now!

There will never be a better time than now to – well…
Do anything you desire…
Be anything you want…
Go wherever you please…
Know your worth, embrace life and love but most of all, embrace yourself…”

Weekend 67

I was away from blog for couple of days due to so much happening around me, all related to my work.  Yesterday I was in boat for almost 4:30 hours but didn’t take a single photo. I was so tired that I slept during the first half. Later it was all dark.

Have a relaxing weekend dear friends!

Indian bloggers who celebrate Diwali must be busy in planning! Enjoy festive mood!

Nurturing Thursday: Gratitude

Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings ~William Arthur Ward

I take this opportunity to thank everyone for taking the time to visit my blog,  read my posts, write comments on my posts (even when I am not around), support me, inspire me  and appreciate my posts.

My Paris trip was not exactly as I thought but it was good nonetheless. I appreciate wonderful suggestions from fellow bloggers. Here is fresh set of images “Paris: a different angle”

Glimpses of Hong Kong

In Hong Kong the number of tall modern buildings are so many that it seems impossible to take a picture of any place without interference of another structure. I tried and I failed. I am going to live with it. I have taken some lovely shots with reflection but will keep them for another post.

In my free time I decided to travel to Hong Kong island and visit 3 places

  • The Victoria Peak
  • Man Mo Temple
  • Zoological and Botanical gardens

I took the peak tram to go up and bus number 15 to come back to town. The Victoria peak is a typical tourist spot. From the top one gets nice view of Hongkong island and of Kowloon side. It was a warm day with clouds.

Then I visited the 150 years old Man Mo temple. A small temple premises near the hectic financial district. The giant hanging incense coils are very special.

Finally I visited the zoological and botanical garden to take some rest and fresh air.

This is my fourth post on Hong Kong trip! The earlier posts are just a click away!

The World’s Biggest Pedestrian Crossing in Shibuya, Tokyo

wpc_07oct17wpc_07oct17_2wpc_07oct17_3

For this week’s photo challenge I decided to share pictures of the world’s biggest and busiest pedestrian crossing in Shibuya district in Tokyo. According to some published figures during rush hours around 2500 people cross the streets at the same time 🙂

I am glad that for once I was part of this crowd and you believe or not but there was not a sinlge incidence of misbehaving. World needs to learn so many things from Japenese people.

You can watch from live camera the present situation 🙂  Soon it will be 4 am in Tokyo. How about watching it tomorrow around 6 pm Tokyo time?
