My philosophy is: Life is hard, but God is good. Try not to confuse the two. Anne F. Beiler

Kinda B & W

As a photographer, do you prefer B&W or color photos or you experiment with both?I clicked this pigeon when it was resting on the rooftop.

I don’t know the category or the type of breed it belongs to, but I was impressed with its color. Most of its body is white and its wings I felt, mostly shades of black.

I don’t know if this particular pigeon’s color is a natural one or its a breed.

Is this a kind of Albino?

“When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in Black and white, you photograph their souls!”    Ted Grant

People’s behavior

“In the beginning, some people try to appear that everything about them is “in black and white,” until later their true colors come out.”
Anthony Liccione

Two kinds of people

“There are two kinds of people in the world—only two kinds. Not black or white, rich or poor, but those either dead in sin or dead to sin”  Leonard Ravenhill

Living your life

“It’s hard to live your life in color, and tell the truth in black and white.” Gregg Allman

Rose & Thorns

Rose & thorn always go together.

Thornless variety of roses are very very very rare. In this world, exceptions are the rule. It’s God’s way.

But 99.99% of roses have thorns.

Friendly Friday: Dreams

What is a dream?

There are many definitions of a dream. Important meanings of dream include

✔ A series of thoughts, images, or emotions occurring during sleep.

This is what we all experience and I am talking about this. And many books were written as to why we dream along with interpretations.

✔ Becoming a visionary-not all of us can become visionary and the majority of us lead a mediocre life and let us be frank.

✔ To achieve a goal (cherishing the aspiration). Anyone can achieve if only given proper attention and help from others.

✔ Imagining all possible fantasies (daydreams). Here your eyes are either closed or open.You can get joy & pleasure albeit temporarily.

“The best thing about dreams is that fleeting moment, when you are between asleep and awake, when you don’t know the difference between reality and fantasy, when for just that one moment you feel with your entire soul that the dream is reality, and it really happened”    James Arthur Baldwin

12 interesting  facts about dreams during sleep

  • Blind people dream
  • Nobody knows exactly why we dream
  • The majority (95%) forget to remember the dreams after 90 seconds of waking up. Remembering is all about waking up at the perfect time
  • Did you ever notice any colors in your dreams?
  • Most of your dreams have negative tones.
  • The people you come across in your dreams are known to you including famous personalities.
  • You can have an orgasm/wet dreams
  • Are you aware of the term SEXSOMNIA? it’s a rare sleep disorder. Here the person engages in sexual behavior (masturbation/intercourse) while asleep
  • Your body reacts to your dream as if it would if you were awake.Example if in your dream a stray dog is biting you, you feel the pain and may even get up restless.
  • Bad dreams happen because of negative attitude, fear, guilt, or failures happening frequently
  • People talk of premonition dreams but how far it’s truly difficult to judge
  • Believe it or not, some dreams are repetitive like flying in the air to dreams of feces and other excrements


“The best reason for having dreams is that in dreams no reasons are necessary.” Ashleigh Brilliant

Lens Artists Photo Challenge #119 – My Hideaway

We all need some change.

We are all sick of Corona restrictions and we are careful and cautious at the same time.

Whenever restrictions are relaxed make best of your time.

“Because in the end you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn, climb that Goddamn mountain” Jack Kerouac

In India we have many hideaways but most popular are hill stations and beach.

Nothing like sitting in front of a lake and forgetting oneself as one embraces the Mother nature.


“Stay close to the serenity of a lake to meet your own peace of mind”. Munia Khan


Beach we

“Dear ocean, thank you for making us feel tiny, humble, inspired, and salty …all at once”. unknown

“There’s only one way to tackle life, enjoy a day at the beach, and jump into a Great Lake: Headfirst!”  Viola Shipman

Thank you.
