A few weeks back when the bus got delayed by around thirty minutes, standing on the road – waiting- I decided to do this instead. Time well spent, what do you think?
“Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, everyday, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to continually be part of unanimity.”

(American writer and editor 1890-1957)
A pinch of light, and whoa!!
Holding on to it…
I’m guarding this tree, can you do it too?

Here in India, it’s Vasant Panchami today: the first day of the Spring. (Find out here what it is). I posted on this last year as well. Click here for that post – Cheers! Spring is Here.
Today morning while I was soaking the freshness outside (it was a beautiful day today except the fierce cold winds), my eyes got stuck at this plant and the instant thought which came to my mind was – between. I mean, between of this week’s photo challenge. And my mind started visualizing all the possible compositions I could get. Well, all that happened within a minute.
So here are some of them -
Another way to look at it -
One more -
Hope you too had a beautiful day today.
Wish you very happy holidays.

Waiting at the traffic lights,
sitting on a rickshaw with a friend,
observing the heritage of Patiala (which by the way can be seen everywhere in this city),
and, enjoying the warmth of the sun along with the fresh/polluted air.
Typical Indian feeling – great and wonderful.
I always enjoy rickshaw rides. It’s difficult when it’s raining, but that’s fun too!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Waiting
Evening is the time when all the birds sit and chirp together just before their roosting time. That is the time when their loud noises are difficult to ignore. So I decided to capture one group in my camera. This group, rather I would like to call them ‘family‘ here, was periodically flying around this tree and then settling down for sometime to fly again. It was great to watch them do that.
It was evening and the light was very dull at this part of the sky. I processed this image to make it B&W. The birds looked great this way.
One more. This one is just a cropped version of the original one. I wanted to keep its colors.
Birds make all of us ‘dream’ to fly,
fly high into the endless blue sky.
To be courageous and stop being shy,
how amazing would it be to freely fly.
Have an amazing free weekend!

Poor little fellow. It got more and more scared and started running into the grass, as I gradually brought the camera near to it. At one point I literally started asking- Please, stop for a minute, don’t hide too much.
Hehehe. But, it was fun.

I was travelling when I took these pictures. The view was so beautiful that I had to ask my Dad to pull the car over. I went to the roadside and got started with my camera. But here is the twist. Although I was actually interested in just the big picture, I accidentally captured a little creature which I wasn’t aware was in the scene too because of its small size (which by the way is a dragonfly). I didn’t notice it until I checked these pictures on my laptop.
Anyways, what matters now is that I grabbed the opportunity and I got more than what I had planned for. And I had FUN!
Want a bigger perspective??
Can you spot the dragonfly in the above picture? I hope you can. If not, watch it in full view. Another option, check the header image.
Opportunities arise unannounced. They don’t ring a bell. They just show up and we need to be ready to take advantage of them.
