My Best Photo 2016

by Uma Rajagopal December. 30, 2016 1833 views

I drive through this street in New Jersey everyday to work. There is a small meadow  of flowers in summer on a nearby trail . It looks fabulous in summer with COSMOS blooming in a myriad of colors. It looks bewitching. I gently roll down my windows and drive a little slower than normal and soak in the riot of colors .Flowers are  mysterious things.  So fleeting, yet in a sense transcendent, returning year after year to backyard gardens, transporting us to another place and time.  They remind us how that moment is felt and  strengthens our resolve to risk it all and love deeply. A beautiful life does not just happen. It is built by humility, sacrifice and hardwork. Like flowers one must allow oneself to grow in all the places people thought you never would . Never assume that you are stuck with the way things are ... Life changes every single moment. It goes by in the blink of an eye :( So make sure you enjoy every moment and not FRET !! Takeaway lessons from 2016 ..


Wish everyone here in the Photoblog community a very Happy New Year !!!

That purple though! Great example of why it's my favourite colour.

I am debating what is more beautiful, this photo or your words!
Beautiful composition, colors, and use of bokeh. I absolutely love it!

Thank you for sharing your lessons. I hope to hold this quote dear to me in 2017
