LAPC #172- A day of my week

Beach Walk

Do you love a beach walk?

I am sure you love it.

Why?

The beach walk is the most relaxing!

There are many benefits of beach walking.

Most important benefit to remember

You become stronger both physically and mentally.

The beach offers a gorgeous view of the land and sea.

Walking on the sand and watching the waves hitting the shore and listening to the typical beach sound, makes you calm and you are at peace yourself.

You also become humble as to how tiny you are as compared to the vastness of the ocean.

And the amazing Sunrise and Sunset?

Lucky are the ones who have beaches in their place of living.

How about drenching your feet in those constant waves loving to reach you?

First things first

I started the day with my favourite addiction

Coffee and Love are best when they are ‘hot’ German Proverb

Sunrise

I did not waste much time ⌚ as I wanted to see the Sunrise.

I was fortunate to witness the magnificent Nature.

“Sunrise looks spectacular in the nature; sunrise looks spectacular in the photos; sunrise looks spectacular in our dreams; sunrise looks spectacular in the paintings because it really is spectacular!” Mehmet Murat Ildan

All you need is the beach and a dog

From nowhere this dog started following me. I think it smelt the animal lover in me.

This friendly dog gave me all the company I needed.

“If you love someone set them free. If you hate someone set them free. Basically set everyone free and get a dog. People are stupid” Unknown

The sound and smell of the sea cleanses my soul

Do you just sit in the sand and relax or you take trouble to reach the seashore?

My friend, don’t simply sit on the sand and gaze the sky.

Nature offers you much more than that.

Just physically move your body, take a walk along the seashore and watch the sea waves.

“The ocean doesn’t complain about the dance of ten million waves; So don’t be concerned with the rise and fall of thoughts” Papaji

What is your thought when the giant wave reaches you?

These giant waves are amazing!

But many get scared because of their sheer size and height.

“Life is a wave, which in no two consecutive moments of its existence is composed of the same particles” John Tyndall

Stuck Wheel

As the temperature was raising and I came nearer to my walking schedule, I saw this stuck Wheel in the sand.

What about our experience of getting stuck in our lives at one time or another?

What do you do?

“Being stuck in the past is like walking forward with your back facing the front. You will always miss out on, what is in front of you” unknown

My friend, with the above wisdom, I will leave you now..

Have a great day!

Thank you for visiting my site and taking your time to read.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Candid Photography

Leave us alone!!

“You all want to know what my dream is? Very simple. To walk along the beach, holding the hand of my lover” Michelle Bachelet

Can you guess what the other lady is trying to focus on?

Creativity Knows no bounds

The lady on the left side is not sure whether to click are not since you see the camera halfway in her right hand before reaching her eyes.

The lady on the right side was not only engrossed in taking the shot but wanted to be more creative and you can make out his from her odd body position.

What is candid photography?

A candid photograph is the one without a posed appearance the subject is not aware of the photo being taken.

Many street photographers swear by candid photography since they feel that it brings the real essence of the true expression in that particular situation.

They say that if the subject is aware, then the charm is lost.

And you know what?

When the camera was incorporated into our mobile phones as an invention, candid photography has become even more popular because the camera is too small, unobtrusive and others may not realize that you are clicking them!

Believe it or not!!

Whether you like it or not, you can’t escape this technology onslaught!!

Believe me, if I say that you are already photographed in the mobile/cameras of unknown persons.

This is very common in tourist spots.

Surprised??

Now read this.

You are constantly monitored as you walk in the streets!

Question to you

These questions I am putting to you because of the topic.

  1. Do you like being photographed without your knowledge?
  2. Don’t you appreciate that candid photography brings out your best natural expression?
  3. Do you agree that somewhere somebody has your photo on their mobile without you being aware of it?

Life message about ‘Candid’

“Life is candid, you can’t edit and crop and that’s its beauty!” Unknown

Please share your thoughts.

Thank you for visiting my site and taking your time to read.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

The world is quiet here- Lemony Snicket

Beach we

“Dear Ocean, thank you for making us feel tiny, humbled, inspired, and salty …all at once” unknown

I always love relaxing on the beach.

Love relaxing on a parasols

For me, it’s the quiet place to keep my monkey mind at rest, which is otherwise impossible to quieten.

Why?

My friend, our lives are full of anxious moments.

You are not sure when you are at peace with yourself.

So this is what I do.

You can also try.

“When anxious, uneasy and bad thoughts come, I go to the sea, and the sea drowns them out with its great wide sounds, cleanses me with its noise, and imposes a rhythm upon everything in me that is bewildered and confused.”  Rainer Maria Rilke

After relaxing what do I do?

I just take a walk and my mind becomes more peaceful.

“Nothing soothes the soul like a walk on the beach” unknown

In every walk with nature, one receives far more than one seeks-John Muir

Walking Partners

Keep walking, despite the impediment most heavy – keep walking, despite the agony most torturous – keep walking, despite the mockery most foul – just keep walking, for, your walk counts – for, your walk is not just your walk, but the walk of our whole humanity” Abhijit Naskar

Museums are only boring if you’re boring

“When in a museum, walk slowly but keep walking Gertrude Stein

Humans and Laziness

Humans are wired for laziness.

Do you undertake a walk daily come whatever may?

I know you, my friend, you are ready with varieties of excuses.

Again the point is nobody is ashamed of laziness.

Why?

I don’t know.

Perhaps you can explain better.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

The sound and smell of the sea cleanses my soul

“The ocean doesn’t complain about the dance of ten million waves; So don’t be concerned with the rise and fall of thoughts” Papaji

What is a seashore?

A seashore is where the sea meets the land.

It changes when the tide goes in and out.

Seashore is always colourful to watch.

You can call the seashore the coast, the beach or the shore.

Why do we all love the beach?

My friend, the beach offers a gorgeous view of the land and sea.

Walking on the sand and watching the waves hitting the shore and listening to the typical beach sound, makes you calm and you are at peace yourself.

You also become humble as to how tiny you are as compared to the vastness of the ocean.

And the amazing Sunrise and Sunset?

Lucky are the ones who have beaches in their place of living.

What about a beach vacation?

The beach vacation is said to be the most relaxing.

Not just kids, adults too enjoy watching the sea waves hitting the shore.

Nothing like standing on the shore as the waves come and go relentlessly!

“When anxious, uneasy and bad thoughts come, I go to the sea, and the sea drowns them out with its great wide sounds, cleanses me with its noise, and imposes a rhythm upon everything in me that is bewildered and confused.”  Rainer Maria Rilke

Do you follow  Beach Rules whenever you visit a beach?

“Beach Rules:

Soak up the sun.

Ride the waves.

Breathe the salty air.

Feel the breeze.

Build sandcastles.

Rest, relax, reflect.

Collect seashells.

Bare-feet required.” Unknown

Ocean’s Wisdom

“Advice from the Ocean:

Be shore of yourself.

Come out of your shell.

Take time to coast.

Avoid pier pressure.

Sea life’s beauty.

Don’t get so tide down on work that you miss out on life’s beautiful waves.”  Unknown

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Title quote -anonymous

Keep calm and go to the beach

“You all want to know what my dream is? Very simple. To walk along the beach, holding the hand of my lover.” Michelle Bachelet

My friend, all of us are not lucky to be associated with the beach.

Many of those who are lucky are not finding time to go to the beach.

What a sad state!

Why it is so?

Either they are too busy or worried a lot about the future and wasting their valuable time.

They forget that the sea and its beach have a profound effect, by converting our negative moods into positive ones.

“Take all your worries to the beach and wave them goodbye.” The Diary of a Nomad.

All of us love the sound of the ocean on the beach.

Beach Day

National beach day is celebrated on August 30, providing an opportunity to keep these relaxing places clean.

World beach day celebrated on September 1st

Thank you.

POSTCARD FROM THE PAST

This Week Sandy wants us to be creative regarding old photos and the nostalgia associated with it in a postcard format.
This made me think about postcards.

Thank you Sandy for the inspiration.


Even if you receive the postcard do you have time to scroll?

How times are changing!

Are postcards Obsolete?

I don’t think so.

Still, I find many shops around the famous location, in every country selling the postcards with famous /popular landmarks.

My guess is a postcard at any given time is a better souvenir compared to magnets, ceramic boxes, key chains or T-shirts.

Hanging our memories on the wall gives one the greatest satisfaction whenever you have a look at it. 

My feeling is at least photographers can continue this good old habit and keep it alive.

Nostalgia

Thanks to Sandy for this challenge, we are sure to enter the world of HAPPY NOSTALGIA 

In this challenge Sandy wants us to take a photo and re-imagine it as a postcard. With additional text, messages or graphics, re-create your photo into a POSTCARD FROM THE PAST

“These are the only cards that are wonderlust. Goes everywhere without a price to pay, never to return”  Punny Leone

“Wherever you travel to, I would love to receive a beautiful postcard.”  Lailah Gifty Akita

 

“The pessimist sees only the tunnel; the optimist sees the light at the end of the tunnel; the realist sees the tunnel and the light – and the next tunnel” Sydney J Harris

 

untitled (3 of 3)

“The world is a book.And those who don’t travel read only one page”   St.Augustine

 

How about the idea of mailing a postcard to home yourself whenever you are traveling?

Why don’t you write about your experience and your feelings at that particular moment and record it?

The idea is that your memory is still fresh and you are able to express your feelings better.

Do you still keep the habit of collecting/making  the postcards?

Please share your thoughts.

Thank you.

Namaste🙏🙏🙏

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.

Lake
