WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: CURVE

My entry for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Curve

For this Weekly Photo Challenge- Curve, I decided to select a couple pictures from our Kerala Tour. Kerala, with its beautiful and mesmerizing landscape, lush tea gardens, backwaters, rightly called as Gods own country is a state in India that one must definitely plan to visit if not already visited. We had a very good trip and thoroughly enjoyed the different places that we visited in the State.

Someone correctly said that-A smile is the most beautiful curve, yeah, the visit brought on the widest happy smile on the whole family’s face.

Some pictures depicting the theme Curve:

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: PURE

My entry for the Weekly Photo Challenge : Pure

Last Friday, for the weekend, we visited our friends who live in a township at quite a distance from Abu Dhabi. They have a beautiful garden with lovely multi colored Bougainvilleas, lots of Rose plants , Mogra plants, Ficus, and quite a number of small trees including Papaya and Drumsticks to name a few and a whole lot of potted plants too. The backyard is used for growing vegetables, and yes, I did get to bring a couple home grown vegetables on my return from their.

While inspecting the Papaya trees that were laden with the fruit, I was fascinated by the small fruits seen off of the Papaya flowers. The new young papaya was the purest thing for me on that plant: untouched, delicate with unchanged color, and so very different from the other slightly grown papayas.

Just to let you all know, the papayas from these trees are too delicious and quite sweet too.
