Sunlit Afternoons

Getting away is brilliant. Seeing new places. Beauty. Trekking. The sun & lazy afternoons. The result of one such afternoon the last week is this set of pictures. Taken during a happy conversation with a friend. All the time I normally spend in office, the sun shines and makes beauty wherever light falls :) Here's my moments with the sun and some arbitrary reasonless prettiness.
Curving branches
Cast curving shadows
Stripes of light
An old wall glows
Leaves creep up

And make pretty shadows


While I count flowers in the grass :)

Hope youhad a great time:-)

Summer afternoons are my fav...the lazy routine, reading loads of books, drinking glasses of 'Nimboo Pan'and just about doing nothing.

yes, the art of doing nothing= summer holidays:-))

Yeah those were the days;-))
