Weekly Photography Challenge: Future

sukies original

I feel like I’m blowing my own (future) trumpet with this post, which is an activity not encouraged for women of my age and culture. So I’m doing it anyway…

On the left, my photo of a spinning top in a patch of rainbow, on the right, that image applied to a ladies…top.

On the left, a magnificent epiphyllum flower, and that image on a sleeveless top.

A highlight of visits to Perth, Western Australia, is watching the sun go down over the Indian Ocean – our Western Sea – and that image on a silk “men’s pocket square”.

I’m inveterate collector of…interesting things. Here are some of them in a heavily edited photo of the little grid of shelves in my kitchen window – now available on a silk scarf.

My earth, my island, my home

Life is for Living

The earth sings quietly

Sharing light, love, energy

This is my island.

These photos are of Oistin’s Beach in Barbados, a beautiful spot where you can find beauty and peace, especially on weekends🙂

A dozen amazing animals – 4. Lion

Images and words

Who is the King of the Earth?
The Lion has been considered as the King of the Animal Kingdom on Land by most of the civilizations for it’s Majestic look, strength and top predatory nature. But unfortunately once well spread across the globe, the King is currently confined to only African Savannah and India. The Lion can grow beyond 300 kg in weight and 9 feet in length (excluding tail). The mane of the male Lion gives it a royal look making it the King of all the animals.

THE ETERNALS COMPLETE

Together Into The Future

Beauty of Taiwan

Geese couples are symbols of marital fidelity and bliss in many cultures because they form life-long bonds with their partner. So when I took this photograph in a park and looked at it later, it reminded me of this beautiful old marriage vow that was stuck somewhere in a corner of my mind.
