Weekly Photo Challenge: Morning

Good Morning!

Well, it only seemed fair to break my surprisingly long hiatus with a post which couldn’t be more apt. My interpretation of this week’s theme would be how a typical morning felt like in the paradise that are the Andaman Islands.

Sunrise
When you have sunrises as beautiful as this, every morning is a Good Morning!

And nothing makes a better morning than a dip in the ocean!

And simply because no decent morning begins without food; in the Andamans, the breakfast was always the best part!

Even though I’ve been idle for the past few months, I’ve been trying my hand at different things! And here’s a glimpse of one such experiment. Please do watch, and please do tell me if you liked it! 😀

Weekly Photo Challenge: Careful

Be careful what you wish for, they said; because you might just get it, they said. Oh, but did they know that I have my heart set upon an adventure yet to come; and for that dream turn true would be my greatest treasure to ever become.

The Highway To Hell; seriously, you better put your seatbelts on, 'cause this is gonna be one hella ride!

Weekly Photo Challenge : Early Bird

Let’s get something straight, I’ve never been a morning person. Never! I just can’t wake up with the sun, leave alone waking before it. One has better chances of winning the lottery than waking me up before 8, at least. But then again, there have been some brutal and horrific moments when I have been made to wake up pretty early. And here’s an account of a few of them.. 🙂

Travel Theme: Decoration

This week’s Travel Theme is Decoration. So here are a few snaps that have fit with the theme. I know the lights (and colours) mainly dominate this post, but that’s the one thing that I can’t help. India is filled with such vivid and vibrant moments, that it is difficult to ignore them. 🙂  

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Water

Water, water everywhere! This week’s theme for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge is Water. ‘Water’ is a topic for which I don’t need to scratch my head for long. Rather in the past few years I have captured so many beaches and lakes that I didn’t need to search for long to get these few photographs out […]

Travel Theme: Metal

Metal! I was completely flummoxed after seeing this challenge. After long consideration and time I shortlisted these few photographs which were true to the theme. Although I have got to admit that some of them are the most cliched images that anyone can find on metal!

Travel Theme: Blossom

This week, Ailsa’s travel theme photo challenge is Blossoms. I am completely new to the concept of these challenges, so please pardon me if I haven’t followed any specific protocol. 🙂 But here are a few photographs from my travels: “The Earth laughs in flowers…” “The violets in the mountains have broken the rocks…”
