Weekend 70: Travelling

Autumn is history.

& the colours are mystery.

Winter is on hold.

But the weather is cold.

I love a balmy breeze,

which will not freeze

the warmth of my spirit.

It’s time to travel.

Weekend 69: Fireworks photography!

weekend69_1weekend69_2weekend69_3weekend69_4weekend69_5weekend69_6weekend69_7

Today was the traditional annual opening of the Christmas season in Bergen, where families are invited to light torches and enjoy a magnificent display of fireworks.

Happy Weekend friends!

Happy little moments!

Many Indians celebrated Diwali this last week. For me it was quite opposite as I was on roller coaster ride at work. There was no time to think about family or cultural matters and yes I am thankful for a supportive family. Now it feels like the week passed super quickly.

It’s our tradition to decorate house for Diwali and make rangoli (beautiful patterns with coloured sand or rice flour). On the day of Diwali, nature greeted me in a very special way and unknowingly I captured those moments. I am sharing rangoli created by nature to say “happy Diwali” to me naah to US!

The way to find out about happiness is to keep your mind on those moments when you feel most happy, when you are really happy — not excited, not just thrilled, but deeply happy. This requires a little bit of self-analysis. What is it that makes you happy? Stay with it, no matter what people tell you. This is what is called following your bliss ~ Joseph Campbell

I am happy to share these moments with you. Find such moments and stay happy.

Cheers!

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.

This photo is taken today while returing from shopping.

Have a relaxing weekend dear friends!

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

Weekend 65: A walk in nature

To stop myself from overthinking

Wrong things happened in the past.

Wrong things happen somewhere right now.

Wrong things will happen in the future.

Not all in my control.

I control my behaviour.

Not others.

I want peace for others.

I am responsible for peace with myself.

I learn to pacify my mind.

I walk in nature.

Thursday was recorded as the warmest day in October til date. October was never so warm before. I am presenting  vibrant autumn colours captured on Thursday despite a super windy day. The time I spent in nature helped me to calm my agitation.

Have you ever tried capturing leaves or flowers when it is windy? Then you understand my efforts.

Weekend 60: Eerie shots

This last week it was difficult to spend time on blog and social media in general due to work and 2 days of travelling. I got to travel by train both ways. The landscape was picturesque but it varied a lot in different parts as we travelled from sea level to 1222 m above sea level. I took many pictures but didn’t get time to see them before today 🙂

The first batch of photos contains the eerie ones.

I wonder how does it look in dark days of winter 😀
