Did you watch the Super Blue Blood Moon this week? It was beautiful, wasn’t it? The teen and I took some time out to do moon watching that evening although we didn’t manage to get any decent phone captures that I could share over here. Continue reading
For Skywatch this week, I bring you a shot of a deep blue sky taken from the flight, just before the descent to Bangalore was announced by the pilot! This was at the wee hours of dawn, when the first rays of the rising sun were beginning to light up the dark skies. Continue reading
Hello friends! It feels wonderful to be back after a long gap of five weeks for today’s Skywatch.
Since I went on a break, I’ve been busy traveling, capturing sky shots, exercising my brain and my mind, practising yoga and delving deeper into the art of breathing, as mentioned in my previous post.
For today’s Skywatch, I’m bringing you shots from my recent trip to Mumbai, which not only gave me a chance to view some of the best colonial-era architectures, amid the teeming millions and their seemingly boundless energy, but also some wonderful bazaars selling an amazing array of commodities in a city with an eclectic mix of traditions, customs, people and cultures.

With the first week of the year 2017 drawing to a close, I think most of us are still reeling under the load of work, whilst recovering from the hangover of the last weekend, as we bid farewell to the year gone by.
Nonetheless, I’m thankful for the short but wonderful break we all had, to wash away the blues and turbo-charge our minds and bodies that should last at least for a while. Continue reading
A Friday again and time for the sky shots. This is going to be the last #Skywatch post of this year for me as I take a short blogging break over the last few days before the year draws to a close and it feels kind of special putting together some of the best sky views from the weeks gone by. Continue reading
It’s the end of the week and a Friday and am back with my SkywatchFriday post once again, to take you along to the calm and serene backwaters in Kerala.
Last week, I had shared some shots of the scenery around the resort where we stayed and the views of the backwaters from the inland. Today, we get onto a houseboat for a ride on the backwaters and catch a glimpse of the beautiful lake called Vembanad. Continue reading
Another Friday and I’m sharing three sky shots from my part of the world, each of which captures a different mood and weather.
The first picture was shot just before sunset came on an amazingly clear day and I watched in wonder as the sky changed colours a million times before and after dusk set in. Continue reading
I’m back with yet another edition of SkywatchFriday today.
The weather seems to be changing already and the sky has been quite unexpectedly dull this week but I did manage to grab a few shots over the past few days.
Below are some captures that display the vibrant colours in the evening sky.
I hope you enjoyed the shots. As another weekend approaches, I wish you can take it easy, put your feet up and relax.
If you’d like to join in, let me tell you, it is easy. Put together a few sky shots and post them in the linky below. As always, your feedback is much appreciated.
Until next week, goodbye!
After a week-long break, I’m back today with another post of SkywatchFriday. It has been a very hectic week and I have no clue how we got over the past week because apart from a bad bout of migraine that left me useless for three days in a row, I’ve been neck deep over the remaining days, inundated with work, chores and planning for the weekend to come, and more so, with preparations for our big annual festivities for the Durga Puja that kicks off tomorrow!
Jay is back from an outstation office trip and Arjyo is thrilled beyond measure because his semester exams or the SAs (summative assessments) get over today. In fact, right now, as I’m typing the post, I can almost see the gleeful faces as they are let loose in the school compound, having been “strapped” to books these past few weeks! The school bus that ferries them home only leaves with the kids an hour later, so they get that hour to play and enjoy to their hearts’ content. Arjyo has been ‘eyeing’ the new Harry Potter book I’ve got for him the day before yesterday, (keeping my word of gifting him something if he did well in the last FAs). Did I tell you, he did us all proud by scoring really well in his last exams. So, I had to let him have his well-earned prize!
The day the book arrived, I promptly hid it in the cupboard, but he smelt a rat when I ignored his pleas about the book that same evening. I think he had seen the message from Amazon on my phone and kept pestering me if the book had arrived. Finally, I let him have a sneak peak at it last evening and he was so thrilled.
Oh, the joys of being a child! It takes so little to make them happy and for a bookworm like him nothing could be a better gift. I get inspired by his enthusiasm and in moments like these, I think I actually live my childhood through him! Today, I saw him planning the class party with utmost precision, careful to carry all the snacks and making sure they’re enough for all his friends. The excitement in his stride was palpable. Apparently, last time, they ran out of nachos, so, this time, he ensured they were enough for the group of six -the gang that always sticks together through thick and thin! I remembered the day before our vacations. Excitement can be so contagious. Even I felt I was having my last exams today!!
This morning, I finally decided to put in my post and here is the sky shot from the week for the viewing pleasure of you, dear friends! For me, of course, they are a way of documenting the photos week by week, so here it is:
With that, I take your leave, dear friends! Wish you all a very happy weekend! For everyone who celebrates Dussehra, I wish you the very best during this festive time, as you get together with family and friends and celebrate.
Would be lovely to hear about how your week went and if you are planning anything special over the weekend. I’ll be looking forward to hearing from you. Have a great time and relax as much. See you again soon!
