Flower of the day 18.5.2016 Helianthus maximiliani

This looks like a species of Sun flower family.  Another pretty yellow flower from my garden smiled at me this morning. 

I was not very sure about the name so searched  on google to find out and according to me maximilliani,  a sunflower, native of North America was the closest bet. Hope I am right. we call it baby Sunflower 😊😊

Mundane Monday #59

Mumbai Surburban railway  is the cheapest mode of public transportation in Mumbai. It would not be exaggeration if I call one of the busiest commuter rail system in the world, blood veins of Mumbai without which Mumbai, the financial capital of India eould come to standstill.  

Though it generally runs overcrowded but one of the days when there were hardly any passangers in the bogie I got a chance to click photos of the hangers below. They are used to seek support while standing in a moving train.  

They are mundane and almost invisible because of the crowd but I had fun shooting them. 

Thursday Doors Challenge 

Can’t resist myself to share these intricately carved doors of Mehrangarh fort, Jodhpur also known as the’Sun City’. I was wondering how and from where the artisans learnt to create such masterpieces in ancient times.

One Word Photo Challenge: Bulb

When I clicked this huge hanging lamp in one of the lobbies of  Hari Mahal, now known as Vivanta Taj in Jodhpur, I thought of using it in my blog later but Jennifer’s One word Photo Challenge: Bulb is perfect to share the pictures below.

Cee’s Flower of the Day: Pansy 

I keep on growing pansies in my garden every winters as I love to buy unique combinations and varieties but these bunch of flowers caught my attention for the simple reason that I had never seen such a small size pansy. The appearance was also different. This easily becomes my entry today. 

Have you ever grown this tiny, pure purple flowers?

Mundane Monday Challenge #58

Here is my response to Mundane Monday Challenge run by my blogger friend Jathin every Monday. This challenge is all about finding beauty in everyday mundane things, capture the beauty and uploading the pictures. 

Yesterday I had almost finished my dinner and was about to leave the restaurant, I asked the waiter to refill my glass. While he poured water I felt like clicking the picture. This is my response for this theme. 

Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge week#18

While walking as a tourist on the roads of Shmla city I must have clicked hundreds of photos. When I uploaded them in my computer I found few pics which were random shots. I think they can fit in this category.

Below is a toy train, runs between Shimla to Kalka , one of the most exciting and fun ride in hills. It’s a four to five hours stretch, where one enjoys floating clouds, breathtaking landscapes and gorgeous valleys.Toy Train
