My Zen Spot

My Zen Corner-I

We are back from our jaunt to Savannah. It's a charming town but it was a totally rained out weekend for us there. The rain let up for just a coupla hours in two days but that was too little to enjoy the town. We did stroll around, soaking to our bones, trying to make the most of our trip.

Meanwhile it's good to come back home and still have a day to ourselves before the frenetic pace of week catches up with us. I decided to put up my favorite corner of our home here while I sift through a hundred odd photos I took in Savannah all the time trying to save my lens under the umbrella. Hope you all are having a great weekend :)

Hi Moi,

That is a beautiful picture, I will have to show it to my wife as she went back to school today and is quite miserable at the moment.

Cheers Mark

Hi Moi,
Sorry about the washout, it's been unseasonable cool to downright chilly here.
I'm afraid I'm dense about the zen spot - it is inside your home, but you had to shoot it covering the camera so it didn't get wet?

Moi said...

Nikon......haha!!! i do have a roof above my head.....:)
all those hundred odd pics i clicked in Savannah were taken from under an umbrella :)

Too bad about your rainy weekend. I'm sure it was pretty even in the rain. I love this photo from your house. A very peaceful spot!

ruth said...

That's too bad about the weather. But this corner has beautiful light, so it's good you're focusing on it. I hope you can find some wonderful shots of Savannah even in the rain.

Cris said...

It feels like a cozy place Moi! What books do you have there? And the bed, is that fabric? Beautiful! Well, rain and water is what you photograph with so much grace, I am sure we'll have nice surprises coming up... :-)

I just got a "blogger award" from Olivier of Evry Daily photo. I'm passing it along to you!

"The 'Power of Schmooze Award' is The Award for bloggers who “effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogosphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way. They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well. They are the ones who engage others in meaningful conversations, refusing to let it end at a mere hello - all the while fostering a sense of closeness and friendship".

Normally you should forward to five persons, but I don't believe there is a fine!"

Cris said...

Moi!!! The banana bread is great!!! Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe!!! Can you please ask your friend if I can post it on my food blog and the link to her blog, please... Thanks so much!

Wow. I remember Patty and I drove into Savannah and it was hot and muggy and by the time we left the reception center we were dripping. But we did cool off downtown in the large squares with the fountains. It is a magnificent city and I didn't even have a camera with me. In those days I seldom used a camera as film processing was a nightmare.

I look forward to your photos.

I also like the photo you showed here. Beautiful.

Karlis Beinerts said...

Great contrast, details and lightening. I really enjoy your photos! Your style of composing the pics, has lot to learn from, to my mind.

Awww, that stinks about the rain! Well, you were wishing for it earlier this year, looks like your wishes were finally granted! ;)
