Miracle buddha flower leaf filter coffee series

Quote: If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.
Author: Buddha
Photographer: kaleidoscope

Kaldeidoscope (sorry didnt get the authorization to post her real name here) is my favorite photographer in the blogging community. I can't do justice, if I write something about how good her snaps are. You should check out the archives at her blog.

On the lighter side, if you can find the flower in that snap, it is indeed a miracle ;)

Quote: It isnt about colors; It is also about colors.
Author: Dheepak Ra
Photographer: Dheepak Ra

For you readers, this quote should be taken literally. Right now for me, its figurative. Sorry cant write anything now. But atleast let me wish you all a happy and colorful Holi.

Bridges france river seine meera filter coffee series

Quote: People are lonely because they build walls instead of bridges
Author: Unknown
Photographer: Meera

A brige across the River Seine in France as captured by Meera. Thanks for sharing the same.

Its difficult to draw the inner circle. Its ever fluctuating like our current supply based on our moods and situations.

Literally speaking, a bridge can have a draw gate and a wall can have doors.......

Cute jiya girl filter coffee series

Quote:Cute enough to make u look twice,
Sweet enough but not always nice,
A little crazy but not too wild,
The kind of girl who'll make you smile
Author: Unknown
Photographer: Dheepak Ra
Child Artist: Jiya

May be I should have posted this either on Women/Valentine/Children's day!!

I found this quote in my old collection. I dont know where I caught hold of this quote. I am sure I didnt pen it (my style is different - full of thees and thys :) ) Whoever he is, God bless him. I like these verses. I am sure everyone would have bumped into someone (should it be singular ;) ) for whom this verse will be meant for.

P.S: Its ages since I have composed and posted a blog entry early in the morning (read 8am). And that to, I have come to office for the second consecutive day before 8am! No wonder Bangalore is realing with some good showers.

Ambition filter coffee series

Quote: Women who seek to be equal with men, lack ambition
Author: Timothy Leary
Photographer: Dheepak Ra

Another snap from the Barista which I am using due to lack of appropriate one for this quote. I am using this snap like an Upma. It was nicely explained by Mamooty (sorry about the spelling) in the wonderful movie "Azhagan".

Happy Women's Day folks........

Journey filter coffee series ship goa

Quote: There is great meaning in life for those who are willing to journey.
Author: Jim England
Photographer: Dheepak Ra

GOD bless the kind souls who decided to host international conferences in Goa instead of the usual Bangalore :)

Monday's coffee might be cold but then cold coffee seems to be the rage these days. Dont worry I have got a better excuse. I was on vacation to attend my college mate's marriage in Chennai. I returned to Bangalore just today. So didnt have the time to hit the cafetteria.

Recovery, Smile, Pride, Purpose and now this one. When I started this blog, most of the posts used to reflect my mood and lately this has to changed for those around me. Some of them know that it was meant for them, whereas some dont (they dont even know that there is such a blog).

Instead of emailing, I share it via blog since I am sure I will be passing through the same phase some day or the other and I wanna place where I can return for solace and comfort.

Recover get well filter coffee series

Photographer: Shanmugapriya
Quote: Spread thy wings to reach the moon, Lift thy spirits to get well soon
Author: I have the honor of recieving the brickbats

Isn't it true that only when we are ill, we get some respite from the monotony and a chance to catch up with all the things we missed during our hectic life like watching those movies, the book which we purchased last month and some gardening. If nothing else, we can atleast take some extended nap.

This is another recycled snap of Shanmugapriya.
