Travelling

We are all different types of travellers, but, why do I _personally_ love travelling?

We just landed from heaven… literally. We flew over Argentina, Chile, the Pacific Ocean and Peru.

If you ask me what trait I might bring from past lives (if you believe in past lives) it is of a traveller. There are very few things that make me as happy as when I am travelling. I love to travel.

Travelling, refreshes my soul, my eyes, my spirit, my body, everything. I love the fresh vibe it brings to what I see everyday and specially how I see it. To honour it, my latest trip was to Buenos Aires, Argentina.

I’ve always felt she’s right … Forests, meadows, mountains, even parks have that effect on me. When I feel overwhelmed by the speed of the city, my mind immediately travels to nature and finds peace, freedom, softness … and I have mentioned here.

Hues, intense hues

There is a word that slips from my mouth almost everytime I talk about colours (hues), it is: inteeenso*. It is a kind of joke, even if I mean a subtle baby pink hue, (baby pink is one of my favourite delicate hues, you can tell by Nefelibata advert to your right) I will still say inteeenso. I will also suggest a rojo intenso (intense rouge?) at the most unexpected place/ocassion/motive.

So, you know, I love playing with hues, you can tell when I play with my photographs’ hues and intensity…

Ghostly-Romantic-Vintage

Photos like this remind me of my childhood readings… ghosts, temples, chapels, weddings, romance, hidden romances, vintage stories. This photo was actually taken on a full moon night. Guess the place?

Expression of the imagination

Style ExpressionI was going through my India archives and I found this photo. This photo was taken behind the Taj Mahal itself. What I particularly like about this picture is how it shows three people of the same nationality (not me, of course) and yet with their own style and expression. This brings me to the words style and fashion. Many people when faced with the word fashion get all this discourse about superficiality and consumerism, I would rather use the word style. To me “Style is not a display of wealth but an expression of imagination” (1).
