This is not strictly a travel post but this blog is also about the other fine things of life like photography. This morning, I was sitting on my bed when I noticed the patterns made by the sunlight streaming in through the window. And my mind went instantly to the stained glass Ganesha that I bought sometime ago but have not been able to hang. So this is what I did…
I have always loved and admired the way Archana Srinivas makes magic with just a fistful of sunshine. I try, but only when it stares me in the face. Here are a few times when it did…
A cold drink on a hot evening
Introspection at dawn – Kerala
At the Gangaikondacholapuram temple
One lonely rose
My sunshine girl at Bangkok’s floating market
And finally, one of my all-time favourites – in Bruges

LOVED this post. Loved all the pics – especially the last one, that of the floating market, and the cycle one.
The stained glass Ganesha looks so colourful and lovely – I love stained glass and would love to get a Ganesha like that. Where did you get it from? Could you please share?
What a brilliant idea for a post! I would love to try out some pics like this in and around my home, and dig some out from my archives, if you don’t mind me doing a similar post.
hey thanks! I picked up the Ganesha at the Hundred Hands sale that happens often in Bangalore, It came with a little loop so I could hang it but it just felt too dangerous! And sure, go ahead and let in your own light on your blog 🙂
We went to Bangkok and Pattaya for our honeymoon, and that’s where my love affair with travel started, pretty much like you. 🙂
We missed seeing the floating market on that visit, though. 🙁
