Weekly Photo Challenge: The Sign Says

This was taken awhile back. Not a very popular sign, but this really caught my eye and made me *sigh*.ย  This is at the 8th platform at the railway station where I stay- Borivali, Mumbai; which is the second largest place in the city and one of the important connecting points. And yeah, I’m king of the north here! (*GoT reference impossible to resist*)

Weekly Photo Challenge: In the Background

Speaking of backgrounds, while the word brings many wonderful (and also awful) imagery to the mind, I was always curious about the ones at events like in premiers, launches or anywhere in general. Honestly most are really meh, in spite of all the stupidity, while there are those which have really work put in them.

ImageThis was from the Mumbai Comic-Con 2012. Simply well done. And here is another one, from the launch of the book, ‘The Oath of the Vayuputras’ when I met one of (rather only) my favourite Indian author which was on my birthday. Well the artwork of the book is so magnificent that really nothing more work was required.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Escape

Sorry for the delay again. So in making up for my escape, it here are not one but two. First one is from a small trek over 2 years ago, at a place called Kolwan. I really love that country side place, and I curse myself for being in my current life scenario, I ought to be on the go more now. Here is the facebook album with more pics. Away from this worldly conflict. Bliss.

Weekly Writing Challenge: Abstraction

What could this possible be? ;)

So for this week’s writing challenge, I played with one of my earlier uploaded images. What made me go for this is the details of the (original) photo. So what could this possible be? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Cookies if you can get it right. I’ll give you a hint, this has got to do with a previous challenge too. And subtlety I gave another hint which a regular challenge abiding blogger might get.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Kiss

For this one, I couldn’t think of anything cool, sweet or whatever. Made me think that I have witnessed from humans to otherwise lot of beautiful moments, but alas I could never actually capture it say for in my mind. Well guess somethings aren’t meant to be captured on a lens. (or that is something which a loser amateur photographer would say, I guess)

So here is my entry which I thought would be best (for now) and well, at least relevant.

Sorry ladies, that is my true love, my laptop. (well, for now) ๐Ÿ˜›

Weekly Photo Challenge: Love

So this one can be a bit tricky one. Thinking of love, to me and everyone else, a lot of things come into mind, here speaking in context of pictorially. Now I’m not going to speak about love or give my ‘opinion’ on it, hell in reality you can’t have an opinion or perspective on such things.

There is love, unconditional, there is affection, attachment, lust, just making yourself feel good. Most people easily confuse all of them, and all of them are related in one way or the other so it becomes tricky.

So here I’m just posting the first thing which came into my mind. My home has been a birth house for numerous pigeons and sparrows for nearly a decade, this is a pic taken a long time ago (don’t exactly remember when, might pre-date 2007) which I originally posted in my other blog (sorry for the ‘low quality post’, was pretty naive back then if you see the archives).

A mother’s love for children. Pure, unconditional love. Here is a bonus picture of the baby pigeons some time after birth.

Well sadly we live in such a world where mothers sell their children, kids kill their parents and all such shit happen. Always try to be realistic, but that doesn’t mean have to be all pessimistic.

And speaking of mothers, today is my mother’s 51st birthday. Happy Birthday Mother (yeah I call/address her that).
