Greenery everywhere- What a treat to the eyes!

DSC_0003Hello friends… How has the week treated you? Hope it has been kind to all! The week has been productive for me. I was just wondering what to blog about this week on My Space. I didn’t want to come up with a review though I’ve a set of books to be reviewed. That is when this idea struck to me while travelling back to Mysore from Bangalore. The field I happened to see was really amazing. The impression it created on my mind has been remarkable. This is not the first time I’m seeing it, though. I’ve seen it many times. But the point of view from which I viewed it today has been completely different.

DSC_0001Our ancestors would’ve surely seen all these and many of them would’ve been a part of this amazing creation, but how many of us have seen it. A handful probably! We are so busy with our city life that we neither get the time nor the urge of visiting a place that actually is soothing to the eyes. We all should make it a point to visit any such place which brings joy to our soul within. Why not take a weekend off to such a place rather than visit malls and spend money. Not a bad idea is it? It so happens sometimes that we, ourselves don’t have any idea of what we want and what makes us happy. Only when we see something do we realize that this is it. That is what I felt today.

DSC_0005The picture gives you’ll a fair idea of what extent of hard work has been put into its making. This picture is of a field near Maddur in Karnataka. What mesmerizing sight it has. This is view from the train as I happened to capture. The farmers work in the scorching heat and sun to make such beautiful fields that soothes our eyes and touches our souls as well. Do we get to see this greenery anywhere in our cities? Never! We don’t even find a single tree under which we can hide to escape the heat of the Sun. We are ourselves responsible for such a state as we are the ones who cut down the trees. This picture is an example of nature at its peace. The greenery of the field has stolen my heart. I’m just mesmerized and I think I’ve viewed this picture some fifty times since I’ve returned. So I’ve decided to click as many pictures as possible of such amazing nature pictures and keep filling my blog with it.

This is my attempt at bringing forth all such places which we haven’t given a serious look at though we keep passing back and forth every now and then.

See you’ll soon at the earliest with another post.

Till then, Cheers!!!


My ‘Date’ with ‘Photography’

Hey friends. Hope the days are treating you’ll well! It has surely been treating me good.  I’m back as promised with a ‘new segment in My Space. I have so far brought in recipes, book reviews and general topics in my blogging. I’m here today with something different and new. The title of my post speaks a lot. I could also call it my tryst with photography. So far I had not chanced upon many opportunities to click, even if I’d got, it wasn’t that interesting one as my mobile would somehow give way. But with my lovely Xperia I couldn’t ask for anything better. Though the clicks in the interiors aren’t that impressive, the ones I’ve clicked outside have been quite amazing for me, though not marvelous.

It’s a picture clicked late in the evening and I’m surprised that the scenic beauty that has come about has left me Wow. The picture holds a special place in my heart and soul for many reasons. So I just wanted to share my photography click with the world as well. This is not my first try at photography, though. With my earlier nokia, I have tried capturing the nature at its best and have felt the thrill. But this click, being the first capture of nature from my Xperia gives me the required encouragement to try my hand at photography as well along with the numerous other tasks.
This much being about photography, let me state a bit about the place as well. This is the Kukkarahalli Lake located in the heart of Mysore City which covers a shore length of maybe, approx. 5 km. I was a visitor at this lake, maybe, about 9 years ago. Ha ha!! I’m sure most of you’ll who belong to Mysore are laughing at me. Being the typical lazy sit at home girl, I’ve never found it interesting to visit this place, probably because I didn’t have a perfect company. Last week when I was browsing for places to visit in the city, I thought why not give this place a try. But, I wasn’t sure if it’s apt for a walk. After visiting, I’m glad I did. It’s this typical calm – serene – tranquil place to spend an evening with your loved ones.The silence and the sound of the breeze in the composed environment makes your evening special.
You can either walk alongside the shore or sit and enjoy the cool breeze blowing your hair off your face. I’m sure, either of it would make your evening a special one. But, make sure you leave the place soon after sunset as you will attract a lot of tiny insects after dark.
In case, you guys plan to visit Mysore for sight -seeing, make sure you drop in at least for sometime (I’m sure you’d stay for much longer than ‘sometime’).
Hope this first step in photography ensures I get a lot of opportunities with regard the same in the near future. Looking forward to post more and more ‘nature at it’s best‘ photos in the coming days.
See you soon.
Till Then, Cheers!!!
