Flowers have an expression of countenance as much as men or animals. Some seem to smile; some have a sad expression; some are pensive and diffident; others again are plain, honest and upright. Its as though flowers have a soul! Sometimes I imagine flowers smelling us back while we enjoy their fragrance …

People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us


Someday when am 90


My wife and I have had so many great moments this past few months looking for places to photograph, enjoying sunsets and sometimes just enjoying God’s wonderful creation. I had one such moment on sabbath in Sedgefield watching this lake, and it occurred to me that I’m an old-fashioned guy… someday when am 90, I want to be sitting on a porch, rocking chair, big cup of tea in hand, my wife knitting sweaters beside me looking at some lake … … somewhat like the old man in Legends of the Fall … thinking to myself “honey we made it! we grew old together”

Then again sometimes you dont want to grow old. You want to be the boy in the lake.

Bougain Villas Landscaping


Sometimes am lazy to go out to shoot, so I shoot from my balcony. No theme no ideas just the beauty of the evening sun on the soft landscaping … best residential complex in SA 2010 🙂


The ordinary flower


I hold no preferences among flowers, so long as they are wild, free and/or spontaneous. I will touch a hundred flowers and not pick one.  Some seem to smile; some have a sad expression; some are pensive and diffident; others again are plain, honest and upright … ordinary flowers. Todays photo-post is dedicated to the ordinary wayside flower, the one that did not make it to the vendor.
