Patterns – Collection II

:: Abstract – Patterns: Collection II

Typically, our lives are so busy, that we miss out on the beauty around us. And, you’ll be surprised, that’s it all around – and it only requires taking a pause to notice it. While it’s true that beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, it should be easier to spot patterns in things around us – whether natural, man-made or even accidental!

Being a stickler for abstracts, here’s a collection (out of more) about patterns I “caught” in many routine places and locales. I enjoy searching for these, as much as clicking them.

Magical Rains: Weekend Drive to Panshet (2013)

:: Galleries – Nature: Seasons – Monsoon:

Rains are one of nature’s blessings, and more so to countries like India that are largely dependent on the annual monsoon season – a lifeline for the sub-continent. Fortunately for us, we (individually speaking, that is) are not governed by the vagaries of the monsoon, and that gives us a chance to experience and witness the wonder of the rains.

Close to Pune, about 50km out from the western edge, is a (still) sleepy little place called Panshet. Nestled amidst the mountains of the Sahyadri Range, this is also a catchment area and a source of water supply to many downstream villages, including the rapidly growing town of Pune.

Recently, with the timely arrival of monsoon in India, it was time to head out and enjoy the lush scenery after a hot and scorching summer rendered the hill slopes, rivers and trees dry. It was this thought that took us on a weekend drive to Panshet, and the scenic vistas of lush fields, rain-cloud kissed hills and bouts of sunlight amidst the rain that unfolded cannot be described in words. See the album for yourself [and, we made a promise to come back for more, before the season ends!]

Trips: Goa – Of Sunsets and Cruises

:: Destinations – India – Goa

Our first day in popular Goa was already off to a great start, with experiences of the old churches that Goa is famed for, the beautiful Mangueshi temple (see the album here). By late afternoon and after grabbing some quick bites and refreshing cool drinks (always needed in humid conditions), we headed to North Goa, across from Panjim to witness more spectacular sights of Goa. See the album below to find out!
