It was just a single flower; but it’s bright orange colour stood out amidst the surrounding green. Day lily is what it is commonly referred to, I think. Orange for me has always been associated with marigolds (jamanthi) and now its two more orange flowers – the orange Angel’s Trumpets 👉 POTD: August blooms 🧡…

19 August: World Photography Day 📸
World Photography Day sounds so apt for the times. It is difficult to choose one photo to mark the occasion; but I finally zeroed in on this one. It was a rainy evening in Hong Kong and we were walking back to our hotel after visiting the museum 👉 A Slice of Kowloon 2018. The…
A moment in memory: Fuchsia 💕
Some words remain etched in my brain and the word Fuchsia is one in the list. I first heard of this colour from one of my older cousin sisters as she was describing the colour of her wedding sari, the manthrakodi – the colourful sari the bride wears for the wedding reception. The bride wears…
POTD: July blooms 🌼
Three flowers on my Pathumani (10 O’clock) plant today. Yellow flowers 💛. They are probably the easiest flowering plants to grow; they flower practically everyday, pretty little things🌼. They make my day !! I hope to get the pink ones too 🌸 !! This is probably the first flowering plant on my balcony; borrowing the…
POTD: Spotted 🦋
When you have the time to click butterfly photos🦋, it’s a sign that you are relaxed and have time on your side😄. Both are good indicators because June so far has been hectic; more on that later. But today morning was unhurried and so while venturing out to collect the fish delivered at our apartment…
POTD: A quirky bunch
A vase from Ikea, a wine bottle, a tea pot and a sugar bowl. A quirky bunch, but they sit in perfect harmony on the kitchen counter housing the money plants🌿. I like them.

POTD: Farm to home 🍍
Pineapples from Kerala🍍; grown in our relative’s land and hence has the premium tag of being 100% organic. And they are enormous too; speaks about the fertility of the land and the well tending hands !! Living in Bangalore, it’s food items that we prize during our visits home in Kerala. Though we can get…

POTD: Christmas Lights 🌟
Our apartment complex is lit up with stars and fairy lights. The scene is lovely; cold weather and bright lights !! Christmas is just 4 days away🎄 !! Till next post, take care !!
POTD: Roses 💮
A bouquet of flowers can be a lovely treat. I got these from one of the hawkers at a traffic junction in Bangalore. It’s a way for them to make ends meet. I don’t normally buy flowers, but these looked very pretty; the buds look the prettiest !! There were bouquets of red roses🌹 and…
POTD: Mist(erious) morning in Bangalore 🌬
Temperatures are dropping in Bangalore and the misty mornings are a beautiful sight !! Have a nice weekend 🌸🌸!! Till next post, take care !!
POTD: Lights out❗️
“People are like stained glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.” – Elisabeth Kubler-Ross (famous for the theory of the five stages of grief) A photo a day keeps my blues away…
POTD: I like what I see 🕯
“Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.” – Confucious It was a full day of rain in Bangalore, most likely the effect of the cyclone Nivar along the coast of the neighbouring state of Tamil Nadu. Colder the night, brighter the flame !! Till next post, take care !!
POTD: November Rain 🌃
I keep a T light candle lighted by my kitchen window. The small glow gives me warmth and company as I wash the dishes at night. Nights are cold in Bangalore now. On one rainy evening, the rain drops created this beautiful sight in front of me. The light outside is from a street light…
POTD: Vallam 🛶
There is a road, a highway actually in front my parents home in Kottayam, Kerala; along the banks of the Meenachil river. The river water has spilled onto the roads again this monsoon. While the buses and cars have stopped plying, it’s time to bring out the vallam, the small black beaked boat popularly sighted…
Bangalore now feels like the Bangalore of yore, at least in terms of the climate; days are cool, sun is warm and welcomed; nights are cold, sometimes rainy. I tried the nightscape mode on my phone and got a pic of our neighbours. A well lit hive !! 🏙 Encouraged with the results, I try…
Colours of July (Photoblog)🌼💖
I have a tendency to click photographs of practically everything around me. The commonplace objects seem more interesting in the photos than in plain view. Looking back at the July snaps, most of them are in and around home, here’s a glimpse of my July… Please correct me if I am wrong with the name….
A hill station ? No… A restaurant at the Bangalore airport. School has closed for the kid; he is off to his grandparents home for the holidays. He is travelling alone and I dropped him off at the airport. He was taking an Indigo flight and Indigo has been in the news lately for cancelling…
