WPC: Flower gleam and glow…

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Close Up.”

Well I wish I had something more out-of-the-box, but anyway flowers are meant to be macro’d rite? 🙂

I captured this lotus during my trip to Pondichery. One usually finds lotuses in ponds, and mostly in temple tanks so I was glad to see them grown in small water pots outside a restaurant. It’s difficult to get a macro of them otherwise!

A pop of color! And a wedding bell!

Just an other flower.

So I’ve finally attended a wedding after ages. Like literally! I’m usually not very fond of them. The people, the noise, the lights – it just tires me like no other. So unless the couple getting married mean something to me, I try and avoid going to weddings as much as possible.

But this time it was a very close colleague of mine and also it was in Kerala, a state I’ve always wanted to visit! So, I thought why not! And now I’m so glad I did. The wedding was in a church, and it was beautiful from start to finish. And needless to say, the food was awesome too! 🙂

I also got a little taste of Kerala! Man, is it green!! There’s trees and plants and grass everywhere, coating the entire place in green. To go from a concrete jungle to what felt like a real jungle, it felt like such a welcome respite. Oh, and it is the beginning of monsoon season too. I finally understood the real meaning of intermittent rains!! 

I don’t have any wedding pictures for you as I don’t think they’d like them to be publicly displayed but I did capture other stuff. Like Moss! And the wonderful flora, one of which I shared above.

Also, a perfect fit for Monday’s Photo 101 theme: a pop of color!
