Weekly Photo Challenge:CIRCLE

Wishing you all a very Happy 2016. Starting this years post with the weekly photo challenge-Circle.

I spent the last few days of Dec 2015 in my home country, India, was visiting Hyderabad for a wedding in the family.  When I saw the photo challenge theme Circles for this month, I came up with all these pictures that I clicked on a single day, December 26th, and found them to be an interesting mix  as if all were meant for this particular post. These pictures are sequentially posted here as they were clicked on that day.

My morning that day started by clicking this beautiful Rangoli that was artistically drawn, freehand, using the white rangoli powder.

I went for a morning walk along with my hubby to see the familiar neighborhood and stopped by for a refreshing hot coffee and some breakfast from the neighborhood stall. All very freshly prepared, steaming hot and yummy.

Steaming hot filter coffee, the best way to start the day.

It was difficult to not stop and eat the yummy breakfast from the food stall, the Bondas that were being fried, the piping hot idlis that were being removed from the pot, the dosa that was being prepared to ones specifications. One has to indulge in the locally made street food.
