I’m not in the habit of entering competitions, from past experience it’s a recipe for disappointment for me. However, this weekend I was encouraged to enter a photograph in the ‘nature and wildlife’ category at the local village flower and produce show (mostly because I wasn’t up to entering a painting and the rest of my art group were tsk…). Anyhoo… hey… whatdayaknow… I won! Not exactly international success or fame and fortune I know, but nonetheless, I was quite chuffed, and got a certificate and everything!! So here she is, the lucky little lady:
Taken at Daneshill Lakes a few weeks back!
Crisp, green and juicy
When will you be ripe enough
for me to savor?
We may be numb with sorrow
Yet the bee still buzzes
And the birds still sing

The overhead wiring in Delhi is as dense and impenetrable as the traffic in the street below!

Yeah, I know, I know, I’ve used this picture before, but I honestly couldn’t fine a more fitting example for this challenge. Oh, I had lots of nice birdie and animal pictures, and more graceful arching branches than I could count. But, this photo of the most graceful building in the world, the Taj Mahal, caught by my goodself in the (very) early morning mist (yawn…) says it all.
We all think we know about the Taj Mahal, but no photograph or tv picture in the world will ever capture it’s vastness and purity of structure and form. It glows in the sunrise with quite breathtaking beauty and grace.
Shame the bloomin’ bird got in the way… hehee.. 😉
Only joking. Just look at the gorgeous sweep of those wings!
