A few months back I bought a hibiscus plant. Somehow it caught insects and I did everything to get rid of those. Finally the plant became green but I hadn’t seen any buds or flowers. A few days back, I was satisfied to see a bud peeping out of the leaves.
It was the beginning of summer and a bad time to buy a rose plant…but I did. Infact I bought two, one red and one white. Within a week’s time they both dried and I got sad. In desperate need to revive them I just trimmed them, I don’t know why… but I did. Every morning, I watched the plants to see some signs of life. I knew they were alive but I just needed some signs. Then one day, I saw new leaves sprouting in the red one first and then the white one. One or two days back, I was more than satisfied, thrilled and happy to see a bud greeting me.
Birthday’s and other occasions are good enough to treat oneself with some yummy confectioneries. Here’s one that I had last year for my birthday.
Why limit oneself with only sweets and chocolates when there are some natural treats too, that one can feast on? It is a real treat to go pick fruits and eat from one’s garden. I was home last month and I did, just that.
When nature’s supermarket is up for sale, it’s a treat for these someone too. Why should we only enjoy the produce?
Sometimes throbbing with vibrancy of life and then fading into dust; change is inevitable. A journey from dawn to dusk; a cycle of a caterpillar; a miracle from form to formless.
Sometimes visible to the eyes and sometimes…
…changing and flowing subtly, taking a new course every second like a river.
Thus, Heraclitus said, “The only thing that is constant is change.”
For this week’s photo challenge my interpretation of vivid is bright
I would like to thank Lore from Snow’s Fissures and Fractures for nominating me for the “five days of black and white photography challenge”. She is a terrific writer and a talented photographer. She is really creative with presenting her photos. I learnt a lot about photography from her, thanks Lore. 🙂
For Day 3 I would like share a rose flower.
You can complain because roses have thorns, or you can rejoice because thorns have roses. – Pablo Picasso.
For today’s challenge I would like to invite John from the Book of Bokeh. He is a master photographer. Apart from sharing many marvelous photos he is also a great poet too. Through his photography he can give a make over to even the most ordinary looking thing. You would certainly enjoy your time at his blog.
I would love to see you participate. I would also totally understand if you would decide not to participate for any reason.
The rules of this challenge are:
- For 5 consecutive days create a post any past or present photo in black and white.
- Each day you invite a new photographer to join the fun.
