For Nancy Merrill’s theme of the week: Bridges
For Jenn Mishra’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Things in a Row
When I was a kid, I used to wonder how huge, heavy airplanes could become weightless. Now I know how, but that doesn’t stop me from feeling weightless when I fly in one and look at the clouds floating all around me!
A relaxing cup of lemon tea, with slices of lemon suspended in it (even when the cup is officially a coffee cup!) Just looking at this picture makes me want to go make myself one..
While on a boat ride in Kerala, these ducks were paddling away furiously beside us. They overtook us eventually. I’d never seen so many ducks gathered together! It was pretty difficult getting a clear picture due to the relative motion of the boat and the ducks, and this is the best of the few that I managed to click.
What makes this photograph funny to me is the random guy inadvertently (or deliberately?) posing at the back. 🙂
Dragonflies are brutal killers with superpowers; their eyes, apparently, are the most advanced in the insect species. (They beat human eyes effortlessly.) That this dainty-winged creature has not wreaked havoc in killer-insect horror movies shows that Hollywood does not do its research. 😉
I clicked this particular dragonfly while on a vacation at Bali. I used the highest zoom available on my camera for this. No tripod, of course, so I was happy this restless one stayed still for as long as it did! 🙂 While it is not one of those breathtakingly clear and detailed macro photographs by a long shot, I do love the transparent wings and huge compound eyes. I made a tight crop of the shot so I can fully appreciate the beauty of its subject.
Tiny adornments! Who doesn’t love them? 🙂 This trio of tiny pots is one of the many decorative items at home that we have collected over the years. (By ‘we’, I mean my sister who does most of the interior decoration shopping trips with my mother in tow. 😉 )
