Pick of the Day!

Standard

Today’s Pick of the Day is another talented artist/photographer from India, who has been an inspiration for me for some time now. He captures the majestic India in his own style without relying on expensive equipment…

To access his work you would need to step away from the comforts of word press and visit him either on Flikr or on FB.

Pick of the Day!

Standard

Yesterday was probably one of those rare days, when I actually found something interesting on Facebook.

I stumbled upon this artist by accident but falling in love with his work was no fate. Each shot shared makes you imagine the amount of work that must have gone into it….His videos on street photography are worth the share,  great read for anyone who cares to carry a third eye!

Saturdays are generally not the days I go online, as hubby is home on weekends and  I love to stay in real world for at least a day or two with him by my side. However today I couldn’t wait to sneak out of my bed to find some amazing blogs. While I read a few blogs on different topics, what I really wanted to find was some amazing pictures and after an hour and a half, I am glad to say, I did not waste my day. Here is my pick of the day, laced with beautiful shots and a story to go with each, a photography blog from Philippines, I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.

This world through young eyes. Simple yet touching words tempered with amazing pictures, created by a young girl, in search of all things beautiful.

My Picks, Awards and Me!

Standard

I probably should have given the disclaimer about Pick of the day being on off, on Weekends as Picker needs to go out and click some Pics.

However, missing my supposedly daily post for two days gave me a perfect excuse to also respond to a really delayed award acceptance post. See, the delay was partially due to my laziness but not entirely so. Let me explain…

Recently I endorsed someone I used to follow, regularly in the past. Hence, when I was asked to write a few words, I chimed right in, without really caring to look around for the latest work by the fellow writer, I said the kindest words I could summon. To my disappointment, I later found the fallen level of quality of work by the person, leaving me wanting to take my words back. Now I know I couldn’t do that, I decided to rediscover my favourite blogs before I open my mouth ever again, hence, delaying the acceptance post.

Now, getting back to the point of discussion, I was given, One lovely blog award on July 18 by DianneGray and Very inspiring Blog by TJ on July 24th. Before I go ahead and list my Favourite 14 links, I think, I need to take care of a few Things,

Thank, the kind one (two) who found you worthy of the award. Thank you Dianne and TJ.

Share 7things about myself.

I think I did write something worthless like that in the past, so why bother repeating… Here is the link for you to check it out. (I told you, I am a lazy Sod!)

and finally to my favourite bit…

The award of the One lovely blog goes to…. (sequence is random)

1. http://ashleyjillian.com/  She’s got all that it takes, to be One lovely award. She is funny, Witty, creative and has a way with words. Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present Ashley Jillian!

Here is a token for those who have inspired me all along

I know, I did not technically find Charlie and Tom Today, but it really is a number 1 collection of Nature photography. I have known this blog for a while now and even though I had coasted away from WordPress time to time, they never failed to come up with something breath-taking every day. Beautiful pictures, laced in, simple yet compelling words, is what makes you look forward to receiving a new post every single day.

I love their work!
