Living in hot tropical Madras, snow always seems fascinating.... that celestial powder which gracefully caresses the land, blanketing everything in a sheet of white, is something I wish would happen here. Come December and I always make snowflakes to put on the window pane, half the carols I listen to mention snow anyway... point is, snow seems magical when you are not knee deep in it or scraping it off your car or shoveling your driveway. People who live in snowy regions don't seem to like it, but people who live in hot countries seem to wish for it...
Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather. ~ John Ruskin
The book store that we siblings used to frequent when we were quite young. This was when I obsessively read every hardy boy I could lay my hands on and fell really hard for Frank Hardy.

I am just gonna put up pictures and scenes that catch my interest. I do like nature and I like fiddling around with a camera so as I go through life in South India, any 'moment' that seems worthy of being captured and frozen in time will find a way to my blog... so that years from now, when I am well into the fossilizing stage, future generations will see the world through my eyes and try to sustain her. I wish I could do more for our enchanting planet, after all she is the basis of life...
