For the love of Snow (or not) !

Have you seen the latest mashup trailer of Hunger Games and Game of Thrones where in Katniss Everdeen is fighting against (Jon) Snow? It is so brilliantly done, I literally clapped after watching it , sitting at home :) The title is also very cool.

SL-WEEK 4 : Weird Hollidays

For this week, Sylvain wants us to share about some photographs related to weird holidays. Here is a simple one.

Because there was this time in 2013 during my trip to Goa, where I fractured my ankle during the third or fourth day of the trip (it was a 9 day vacation) and after a day’s rest, couldn’t take it any longer and started going everywhere with my crutch. I hate being confined to a room during my vacation. Thanks to my friends, I missed only two days of the trip and the rest I took it slow but enjoyed it, even if I had to go and visit a couple of doctors, hope around with my crutch and another leg, hold on to my friends in case my swollen leg was gonna give up and come back to a 2 month bed rest and work from home :) It was all worth it. 1-IMG_9688

And during the time when I was OK to walk to the beaches, saw a bull take a walk or rather run in the beach….1-IMG_8989

SoCS: Using a different medium

There was a time when I liked to read text books but now, just the mention of it puts me to sleep… I love to learn new things, new languages etc…But starting with books ? Naaah…Give me a good novel anytime now and I will stay awake the whole night! ;)
Now I like to sort of learn things through visual medium, which is more effective. But again, it shouldn’t be too long a video else I will just snooozzzze. Here is one which I saw recently, about the philosopher Kant and his maxims. It was cheeky, funny and to the point. I don’t know much about philosophy but I like these kind of short introductions.


Post for this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “vis.” Use a word, or tie your post’s theme around a word, that contains the letters VIS, in that order. Enjoy!

This was for the color of the bark of the tree and the way the light was falling on it.
