Art is a discovery while watching nature.

Amrita said...

watch...wait and rest. Very beautiful

Mohan said...

Too good! Nice capture once again with contrasting foreground and back!

you are back with a bang!

Devika said...

Oh so nice, Ash :)

Ironically it reminds me of a Malayalam movie dialogue between two jobseekers...where one says..'How I wish for a job so I can take a break!'....

and another -- 'I am tired of sitting idle, I need to have some rest' :)

Beautiful photo to go with, Ash...the perspective I meant :)

wishes,
devika

How beautiful to have the afterimage of such words and ideas to enrich moments of idleness.

Ashish Sidapara said...

Very beautiful, love the quote.

Annie said...

Dear Ash,

Thank you for your visit today and your supportive words.

I'm enchanted by YOUR post today. I don't know what is more meaningful to me, the beauty of this vase or the Spanish proverb. No doubt, a little bit of both.

Annie

Ash said...

Thanks for the comments everyone!

Hobo - Thanks!

Amrita - Indeed!

Mohan - Back with a bang ? Hope so! I hope to be posting more regularly!

Devika - Oh I know!!! One of them was Jagathy SriKumar I guess. My dad's favourite actually :-)Thanks for the comment and visit ( and the chuckle!)

Kavitha - Again...yes!!!

Paresh - Thank you!

Brattcat - Thanks! I guess we must all have an idle no-nothing-for-an-hour everyday :-)

Ashish - Thanks!

Annie - Thank you dear! Once again, good luck on your journey. I'll be cheering for you!!

With the proverb and the Chinese vase, your post is perfect.

Beauty!

Shuuro said...

beautiful colors and light, well captured.

Devika said...

I can't remember all too well, Ash...but doubt if it was Mohanlal-Nedumudi (as Anglo Indians...can't remember the name of the movie...but this joke is oft-quoted i guess...and typical of Jagathy too :)

Nice to have your response, Ash :)

wishes,
devika
