With no snow yet in Memphis, I had to really, really look around for “something white” to click. Sugar, soap bubbles, my white crockery set, a white dress – nothing seemed to be “photo-worthy!” Thank God for the friendly (please don’t judge her by the looks, she IS friendly!)neighborhood cat who graced us with her presence at the last minute for a perfect click. (Who said that the cats don’t bring any good luck?)
My favorite part of this season is the “colors of the fall”, when everything around us alters to wonderful shades of crimson, brown and golden. Pixie-dusted and gleaming – that’s how I like my winters to be. (Yes, I am not a big fan of the cold-wave!)
Well, I waited and I waited some more – for the skies to clear today! (Yes, it’s been raining since 9 pm yesterday night!) Umm.. With temperatures dropping by -20 degrees in one day and no Sun to be seen, this is the best of the skies that I could capture this day. Guess, this is what December is all about! Some below-freezing temperatures, extra-warm jumpers and a pot full of hot-chocolate! (PS – The perks of living across Mississippi River is that you always, always get beautiful pictures!)
Finally, I reach Day 4.. Yay! “December Photo Challenge” by Through The Eyes Of Gracie has surely kept me and my blog on toes! (Phew!) It’s been an amazing experience whiffing through old pictures and reminiscing my past.
Hello everyone! I am super excited about the “December Photo Challenge” by Through The Eyes Of Gracie! Since I am late by three days in joining the challenge, today is going to be the day that I make up for it. (Image Overload!)
About the photo –
Clicked by Nexus 6P phone (and edited by Snapseed App), at the Mississippi River Park, Memphis – this photo speaks a thousand words.
It is fascinating to notice the colors, patterns and the characteristic blueprints of Mother Nature. The dramatization of the skies, calmness of the Mississippi river and the vastness of the magnificent world that we live in, makes us so microscopic and meager. Undoubtedly, “nature therapy” is the best way to unwind and unravel the mysteries of trials and tribulations.
When the nature “talks” and you “listen” – there is calmness, harmony and contentment. Hail Earth Mother! Hail Gaia!
