"I'm just a wayward traveller.......

..........trying' to find his way home" - Phil Cerasoli

Weary traveller.........

"......If I stagger and wander, come to my help. You are also human beings and you are also going home"

Leo Tolstoy

PS: It was shot right outside the back door of the church where the young artists sat sketching the interiors.

hello moi,

i've just scrolled on your blog all the way down. i love the photos and i'll keep comin back. i, too, love photography.

just to capture things that may not happen again. and i've decided to do it more on phone for now as my phone goes wherever i go. but actually cuz i still don't have a digital camera...
see yah...

suramya said...

I'm speechless, I vote this as your one of your best shot pictures.

JAM said...

Fantastic photo of a sad situation.

Kunal said...

so i see you figured out the older posts thing...:)

did you photoshop the previous two images? they have a nice quality to them...the last one would look damn neat without color as well, i bet!

Kunal said...

what you can do is go into your blog settings (not account settings)...and template..you can select whatever things you want on the panel there and its position...just click on the links and it will guide you...

When you post your calla lilly photo, I will look at it closely to see how you were reminded of it when you saw my tulip tree blossom photo.

This is a nice capture. The mood is sad, but it's caught in such an intriguing way....

Moi said...

Sarad : He might be, it was brutally cold in Dec...and he was enjoying(!!!) a teeny-weeny patch of sunlight that u can see in the glare above his head

Perpetual Procrastinator: Thank u .....:)
