Ok, I didn’t write this post just-for-the-sake-of-blogging Ok?**
I go around clicking pictures with my phone all the time, sometimes even at the risk of us reaching school just a little after 9! Imagine my delight yesterday, while on our way, my little brat asked me to stop, and take a picture of this ‘solitary orange-leafed plant/tree’. Co-incidentally, this week’s Thursday Challenge is ‘Orange’. So here it is!!
** Who’re we kidding?!!! 😉 🙄 😉
So Ash’s comment made me so enthusiastic about doing the Thursday Challenge, that I clicked a picture of something really cute, and scheduled it for next week (which is , ‘today’).
Every time we apply for a Schengen visa, we queue up at this VFS office, which is just off Soho Square. While the little alley where the office is located looks rather seedy, the Soho square itself is just so pretty. See for yourself!!!
Isn’t that the prettiest wooden house EVER?
🙂 🙂 🙂
Its been ages since I took up a Thursday Challenge post. Thanks to Ash (of Krishnaleela fame), who kindly mentioned it on FB (actually, ahem, she said she found my blog thrown up on Google when she looked up Thursday challenge .. He he 🙂 talk about ‘cheap thrills’ :lol:), I was motivated to try it again.
So, this week’s theme is ‘LIQUID’. I just took these pictures the other day, because I found it fascinating to see – Ripples WITHIN ripples 🙂
On closer look, I found that the ripples were being caused by rain water leaking from the train tracks that ran overground, just above the river 🙂 How beautiful is that!!!!
And on that note, Happy Thursday folks. Can’t wait for Friday evening, as this week has been manic, with the weather touching 24 degrees, which is ‘HOT’ by London standards!
Technically, I’m still living Thursday (infact I have a good 45-minutes until Friday begins :-)). So here’s my post for Thursday Challenge, that has the theme ‘Green’ as I read on IHM’s blog.
I miss the green, spring has just about started here, but it is still chilly at times.
And, on that green note, tomorrow is the end of the week. Time certainly flies!!
(Apologies to my FB friends, this is going to be a repeat!!)
I should have waited until today, to post the autumn pictures! For that is exactly what this week’s Thursday Challenge is all about!!!
If you are wondering what is ‘special’ about this picture, it is this : As you walk past this tapestry, you find that the painting seems to have turned towards you!
That is, when you are standing at one end of the painting, Jesus Christ looks at you. As you walk past and reach the other end of the picture, it would seem that the painting has also changed position, towards the direction in which you are standing, instead of just remaining the other way round!!!
Edited to add:
The tapestry is in Italy.. I think its the Vatican museum, but I’m not too sure. Will re-check and let you folks know. It is truly fascinating, though. You just want to walk past it, over and over again, till you get bored 🙂
Guess what? This is infact the Vatican museum, and do check out this video link.
My second attempt at Thursday Challenge!! An extremely easy challenge this time, as my place is ALWAYS always and always messy!!! This picture was clicked the day we returned from our India trip. Little R was so excited to be back in ‘his’ space!
Isn’t there something golden about this picture… or am I being cheeky here?! (Considering I have no pictures of anything else remotely golden 😉 to post for the Thursday Challenge!)
