The Simal tree blooms in Delhi during the month of March. Almost overnight it transforms a drab cityscape into one bursting with color and joy. The thick, fat, brilliantly colored flowers attract birds of all kinds. Chatter, twitter and music fills the air!
When these flowers fall down with a thud, the smaller insects make it their playground. The sight fills me with delight and ever so often I pick up these fallen flowers and make them my muse. I share with you some of my conversations with them 🙂
A morning walk is a time for revelations. The thought of venturing out before the sun has risen and to actually witness daybreak fills my heart with joy.
The opportunity to capture interesting sights with ones cellphone is amazing too. The shot above was taken from a Samsung phone, a tiny flower hung suspended by an invisible thread, it was swaying gently in the breeze. A pause, a click and back to my walk… So very fulfilling!
Nature gives us the most incredible ornaments to enhance our beauty…The glowing fireflies, blooming Lotus, the complimentary colors of the rising and setting sun that bring a glow to the face…..delighted and enthralled by nature 🙂
A modest Street, a simple home but oh! What a spectacular entrance!!
These are leaves, the color of resplendent flowers, red to begin with, they turn green as they age…
Definitely a place that stops the ever moving feet!!
The narrow metal cage cannot prevent the lotus from finding it’s way out and blooming in full splendour 🙂
Listening to country music and painting results in a desire to break all boundaries and soar into the wide open spaces..where wild flowers abound and fresh air nourishes everything.
Enjoyed the real taste of freedom today, within the confines of my studio 🙂
The gorgeous ‘Laburnum’ or the equally exotically named ‘Amaltas’ is in full bloom these days. Standing under a fully blooming tree coats the body with a gorgeous sunlit glow that bounces off our dark Indian hair in flashes of light!
An amazing, captivating, intoxicating sight….Just lean back against the smooth bark, raise your head towards the millions of hanging blooms and click a shot in your minds eye for posterity 🙂
Fallen flowers reflect the beauty of the crimson blossoms….United in their separation…
Atop all the gorgeous flowers, on a suspended hammock rests a little baby. When the summer heat becomes too much the hammock is covered with a sheet. Thus life goes on for the flower sellers and the new addition to their family…..
Carrying a cellphone with a reasonably good camera has its advantages. This back lit flower had the most ethereal glow to it almost like the light at the end of the tunnel 🙂
