The Pumpkin Day and Jack-O-Lanterns!

I dig warm colours and orange's one of them...........so tho' i have no real fascination for pumpkins, i somehow always end up clicking them for that bout of colour they add even to the dullest of the surroundings.........
Hope u have a happy and safe Halloween!!! :)

Sky's the Limit!!!!

The palmettoes dot the cityscape here everywhere: they make beautiful silhouettes against the sea-sky.
The weekend's just a day away : and I am gonna be travelling!!! :) :)Not really far but even a short trip with weather fairies smiling the way they are these days, is a welcome change ...........Have a great Friday all!

For a change,

............(no puns intended here)...the photo-blog of mine has no pic on but a message on behalf of a friend and his sis who are running a marathon this Oct 22nd, in Chicago. They have pledged to raise funds to support a few meaningful causes, close to their heart, in India. The sis-bro duo look foward to sponsors to help them make a difference in the lives of children and communities they are running for. Have a look at their webpage And don't forget: every li'l help counts!!! :) Have a great week, all!!! :)

Mom's the wor(l)d! :)

.......That's the second time am using the title......the last time I did was for Mother's Day : http://mykodak.blogspot.com/2006/05/moms-world.html I must have almost forgotten about this pic as it was shot aeons ago when this camera was newly acquired......... The adorable 6-weeks old Tamani (that means "hope" in Swahili) was the town's darling.................Every afternoon he'd come out for a coupla hours to play in the sun and for public-viewing and we'd all go sighhhhh!!! It was such a wad of fun to see him playing in the sand and tho' it had its aunts and uncles around, it wud never leave his mom's side, nor would she move more than a few inches away from him ever!!!! :) I have a coupla more shots of him, which I would put up as soon as I can locate the CD they are on! It was a struggle to get to shoot him coz of the kids thronging up to watch the baby-elephant they all adored, am lucky I managed to get this one ............... Nevertheless, I was mighty thrilled with my brief date with Tamani :)

Is there anything like an "imperfect sunset" ?????

" Nature rarer uses yellow Than another hue; Saves she all of that for sunsets, --Prodigal of blue, Spending scarlet like a woman, Yellow she affords Only scantly and selectly, Like a lover's words." Emily Dickinson No sunset can ever be replicated..............and thats what makes them so special. I can see a bazillion sunset shots and still not get tired of them.......they always bring a whiff of nostalgia, romance and warmth.........It's like those Van Gogh's paintings....their beauty refuse to efface, years after they were created. God's own way of telling us that all art is but an imitation of nature...........:)

The curious one :)

It's amusing how these li'l rodents respond to a camera-toting human around................Some of them flit by even before u can catch a glimpse, others can't really bother about u, and then there are some like this curious li'l bushy-tailed chipmunk, who once done with her food, kept posing for the lens......She'd flit from one tree to another and still lookout for me :)
