Yellow

Just this evening I published a post related to Yellow as part of my A-Z Book List series. And when I checked for Sylvain’s theme for this week, it also said ‘Yellow‘ color. Why not huh? I looked around and found this fellow lying on my office table. This belongs to my nephew, who has cars in all colors. He left this one behind when he was here last year and asked me to keep it safe for him 🙂 What lies on my office desk will lie there forever. My desk isn’t too messy, but messy enough for my mother to give me a stink eye. Now that my nephew is gonna visit me next month during his vacations I am glad that this teeny tiny fellow survived the year at my desk (and did not go into hiding in one of the innumerable place in my house)

A-Z Book List: Y for Yellow

Another of those alphabets where I haven’t read any book starting with that letter. So I am going to go again with the book that I would like to read.

Name: The Yellow Wall Paper by  Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Elaine Hedges

Genre: Horror, Psychology, Short Stories, Fiction, Classics

I remembered this because I saw a trailer for a movie with the same name or did I see it while I was browsing through the list of movies to pick and watch? I don’t remember now. But this name stuck with me. Found out that it was a 2012 movie which is based on this short story about a woman’s decline into mental illness. I haven’t read the story, just the synopsis, but that itself is enough to tell you that it can be very dreary and sad. These kind of stories always makes me sad. There are very mixed reviews for the movie. But the Goodreads has a very good rating for the book. I guess I should be in a particular mood to go through these kind of stories and not feel depressed at the end.

Let me see when I get the time to get around to it. If you have read this short story, do drop in your views or links to your views in the comments. Or if you have any other book starting with this alphabet that you have read and have enjoyed, please let me know of that too. Might come in handy next time 😉

WPC: Yellow

For this week’s photography challenge: Yellow

A new restaurant called ‘A Hole Lot Of Love‘ , by ‘A Hole In The Wall’ group, in Bangalore. I liked how their display was bright yellow in color that I couldn’t miss taking a shot of it in my phone. I think their names are cool, aren’t they ?IMG_20141217_185051142-001This was taken in Sinhagad Fort. Pretty little yellow flowers, they were.

Last but not the least, I am not sure if the color is yellow or rather golden, but I love this photograph I took in Tossa De Mar, Spain
