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!

WPC: Close Up

For this week’s photography challenge: Close Up

Some of the close up shots of plants from Fort Bragg. This one was for the dew that was present.

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

And this one is the close up of this squirrel which I shot near Point Cabrillo Light house.
