Dahlia

A blooming dahlia at our garden in India. On the outside it did not look too appealing in comparison to the other brighter and more popular flowers. However, when I examined it, the burst of colour  was a treat to the senses.

As much as I love roses in any shade, there is something quite alluring about a white rose.

Faith & Light

We had the community Mass for the Faith & Light group of Kuwait, this weekend. The Faith & Light community consists of members who have special needs and/or, who have children with special needs from various Christian denominations. In Kuwait, the group has mostly members from the Indian and Arab community and the mass is celebrated annually by all of its members.

I have been a part of this community since over a year, though a little less frequent now than earlier due to a hectic schedule. I love the children and I truly consider myself blessed in getting to know them.  I feel very happy when I am around the kids and it is wonderful when I get a bear hug or a kiss from them.  I do not go there to do my part, but I go because I feel loved in return.  Innocent  love in its purest form.  Who does not want that?

A few favourite shots of the event.

Captivated by her face.

I never see him without a smile. So full of life, its easy to see what makes him popular .

Friends.

I caught her with raised hands, singing a devotional song.

My favourite picture. In spite of all the uproar around him, he had a moment.

Children

Today I decide to go to the beach early evening for a walk. It felt like a day to be with nature and in this country, the beach is the best option. It was a lovely evening by the beach with families and children as well as a lot of dog owners. Towards the end of my walk, I decide to click a few shots of some children playing in front of me. One of the kids, a Kuwaiti, was happy to pose and asked me to take more shots of him. A little while later a young lady comes up to me and asked if I took his picture. Worried if I had crossed the line, I replied that I did take a few. She smiled and said that it was fine and asked to see the pictures. She turned out to be  the child’s sister and we ended up talking to each other for a while. She was a lovely Kuwaiti teenager who was interested in photography herself and offered me a few tips.

‘We are planning to make him a model’, she said. I affirmed that with his natural flair in front of the camera, he would make a good one.

Nothing like smiling children to brighten up your day.

Weekend

Random shot of a Friday morning sale when I passed by an Industrial area. The truck is a mobile mini grocery loaded with food stuff.

Scrap yard

Piles of scrap metal and other parts at a junk yard. Passed by the area this weekend and realised I never looked at scrap this closely before other than through my camera.
