I chose these pics for today’s Daily Prompt : Distance

The view of the Malampuzha Gardens from the halfway point before reaching the top of the dam. If you look closely you can see the rope-way which passes over the garden and a canal.

The Last Flowers

These flowers only bloom for a month or two every year. The one in the photo was one of the last three of this year’s batch. Now have to wait a year to see these guys again.

P.S  I was told that this is a kind of Lilly. If anyone knows the name then please let me know.

Streets

Daily Prompt: Photographers  show us OUTSIDE.

I took this photo while going for a drive with my dad. Even though it’s a little blurred there is something I like about this photo. The blurriness makes it look like everything is moving  or changing. This kind of fits seeing how fast this city is developing. When I moved here 10 years ago this was a small town with old buildings and the outer areas that where all under development.

This street in the photo used to look dull with just a few streetlights here and there, potholes and only a few shops. The other side of the road is a huge pond. Within a span of a couple of years the road and the rest of the city got a makeover. The street is one of the best drives now. The road is smooth, the area with the pond resembles a small park and shopping complexes have come up on the other side.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Nostalgic

For this week’s Photo Challenge I chose a photo of my High School.

What it reminds me of are my friends. High School was somewhat of a painful experience. The only good thing that happened to me there was the friends I made. Infact that is one thing I cherish the most about that place .  Five years later we still remain the best of friends.

This photo is of the school corridors where we used to spent time during breaks –  laughing,joking and making fun of each other.

Twilight

No, not the one with the sparkling vampires. The natural twilight – soft glowing light from the sky when the sun is below the horizon.

Took this photo sometime last week just a few minutes after sunset. I haven’t done any editing other than cropping he photo a little bit. It looked beautiful as it is so didn’t see any need for adjustments.

Mirrored

Daily Prompt show us MIRRORED.

Mirror work is quite common in traditional Indian dresses and accessories. It’s more common towards the northern part of the country.
So for today’s prompt here’s a couple of photos on that topic.

I found these in a fair and was told that this is of Gujarati style.
