Recollection and Some Imagination

i hope this picture of mine is able to capture the weather in my part of Delhi. Needless to say then how one feels with that respite from the uncomfortable heat that sees one running indoors and wanting to stay put next to the AC. i just wish i was fit enough to go outdoors and roam around but since i can't i'll try to roam around amongst favored climes and desired pastures in my imagination.

Pure Imagination 
by Roald Dahl

Come with me and you'll be
In a world of pure imagination
Take a look and you'll see
Into your imagination

We'll begin with a spin
Trav'ling in a world of my creation
What we'll see will defy
If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it
Anything you want to, do it
Want to change the world, there's nothing to it

There is no life I know
To compare with pure imagination
Living there, you'll be free
If you truly wish to be

There is no life I know
To compare with pure imagination
Living there, you'll be free
If you truly wish to be.

i have missed blogging. It took me two months and i feel like blogging again. Probably it's the weather...romantic as many would call it.
Romance aah! the mysterious something i would love to indulge into but the fact of the matter being i am drawing a blank there right now.
i just feel like sitting in this terrace of mine, enjoying the weather and type away to glory without giving much thought but typing nevertheless on this silent keyboard of mine.
Maybe it's my sincere attempt to come back on the scenario and had it been yesterday my post would look ravaged. Endless list of frustrations, cribbing and negativity but not today. i am definite it's the weather in my part of New Delhi with some coolness that has descended like a strange mist bringing down the temperatures of everything, including the tortured to hopelessness soul. There is no muddy, smelling like fish wetness just the refreshing coolness. So without much ado i shall share some pictures of mine. One or perhaps two at a time. Some which are my collections of these past few days and which have been lying stay put in my pen drive. Probably i am also inspired by invisible to me but remaining stay put blog dosts who are brilliant in their skills.
Mostly what i wanted to share have remained even on my mind's eye with names given to them in my imagination. And i have nothing better to say.
Yeah a few days earlier i felt like writing something that would change the world but then i chickened out of it. Thought it better to change myself first...

However unlike my fellow bloggers there is no art here in my reproduction but just some recollections that would help me see them again with some fondness as i had felt when my eyes had first chanced upon them.
So far as nature is concerned it is just so photogenic even for those who are still comfortable with a cyber shot. Because in nature things are as they are...pure and simply beautiful and one does not have to be an artist par excellence to capture them.
Sure if you don't know them and want to keep them alive as names there's nothing that a little imagination can't accomplish.

Sometimes i think ignorance not only is bliss but it also allows you freedom. This instance while i have no clue about this amazing flora and recollecting the vision i feel free to have my own nomenclature. And each and every time i look at it i am reminded of the sunflowers painted by the great painter hence the name...
That should be all but will be back with more imaginations and recollections and definitely less of words...


  1. you are invited to follow my blog

  2. @ Steve Finnell thank you for the invite and more thank you for stopping by. Sure! will do soon enough :)

  3. Good to see you back after a "short" gap.
    Yes I heard that Delhi is cooler and that is a welcome change. I think that extreme heat all over India has cooled down a bit.

  4. @ Haddock :)Thank you...that was it is my turn...should see me on part 1 and 2...:)

  5. Beautiful captures and a lovely read!

  6. @ magiceye thank u so much...blessed r u for u just made my day. Feel more happy than being grateful to u. :)

  7. @ aliasgarmukhtiar coming from passionate about taking pictures that depict life as it is in it's simplicity I feel very encouraged. Thank you and I hope you can find time to review more that is about to come. Some of my personal favourites. I shall keep on to driven enough with not one but two showing appreciation. Appreciate the promptness too...:)

  8. in the second picture the selective coloring works really well and makes t stand out :)

  9. @ joshi daniel thank u so much. I hope in time I am able to first follow what u r trying to say...then be able to do it. Sry if this disappoints you but even words like ' selective coloring ' is new to me. But now that you have made me aware I shall learn. Will do me a lot of gud. I take shots of the beautiful world but most of my pictures feel flat. Your shots make me emotional...but of course you are an artist. I guess even when u choose you choose your subjects you must be seeing more than generally people see.
    Much obliged sir...will try...might fail but will keep trying. :)

  10. Thank you, Beautiful captures and a lovely read!

  11. @ Gajadhar Dwivedi thank you too for not only caring to stop by at my post but also for the appreciation. :)

  12. ok, the reason why i didn't see this post is because you didn't submit it on indivine. but from next time on, i am going to find your new post even if you don't submit it.

    this was a wonderful read as always. am glad to know that it's raining in Delhi. those photographs look beautiful. i don't know anything about photography, i just admire good photographs. by the way, loved that line - 'ignorance is not only bliss but it allows you freedom.'

    your blog looks amazing with all the awards, blogrolls (delighted to see my blog there), and colorful photographs.

  13. @debajyoti, hey!
    Thank u... i sure do feel happy to c u here. Yeah that particular day it did rain on my side of New Delhi. Of late although the sky looks overcast its just heat and humidity.
    Ahhh about those awards... It was only once upon a time when i had just started out on blogging.... But they r there on my page more for my sakes...i am sentimental and very grateful how those awards staying put there remind me always of the good Samaritans in blogosphere who gave me those.
    They motivate me to continue in my journey....learn to express myself....share my feelings....
    Yeah and i do follow u because i enjoy ur posts very much.
    Thanks again for visiting and i hope to see more of ur visits on my page here. :)

  14. Glad that Delhi weather is offering some respite. Lovely shots and write more often. And yes, as you said nature is very photogenic.

  15. @Saru Singhal thank u for stopping by. Yeah i do want to write frequently. Ur words inspire and i shall try. Wish u could go through some of my older ones too and say something about one if not some. :)

  16. looks like we are a bit alike .. cool breeze on the terrace and appreciation the left over of mother nature around and the creations of the Almighty .. who can fly .. free and staring at those who are stagnant yet have the bright attraction to bring close any living being and a fragrance of love and bliss they spread .. i loved smoking away in glory .. ofcourse .. I realized i was being a part of spoilers of mother Nature hence left .. but .. still love so much .. sitting under the umbrella called sky on the roof called terrace enjoying.. ambiance around !!
    Sweet capture and I can see you did not do any tailoring .. and they look beautiful this way .. as pure and fresh as your post was :)

  17., hey! so gud to see u here. So thrilled with joy to hear u express so well the joy of leisure and nature. Yeah i guess we may be sharing a lot in common.
    Feel quite emotional when u address the post and the pictures as 'pure' and 'fresh'.
    It's been one frustrating day but ur words clears the i look forward with gaiety to the rest of the evening. Thank u very much indeed! :) :)

  18. I really loved the first click!! Awesome! What's that tree? I thoroughly enjoyed the beauty of nature through your words :)
