After the somber tone of yesterday’s Haiku, I wanted to change tack entirely and return to the Happiness that’s always waiting beneath the surface! It is really, just that some days, t’s a hard to get a hold of, put a finger on, Remember – you know what I mean?
So this is my way – of Remembering 🙂 When I first developed a serious interest in photography – Flowers were my thing! Not only because they are beautiful but because they so obligingly stayed put and allowed me to experiment with light and settings and angles at leisure 🙂 Yes Flowers were my friends and although it’s been a while since I took some great flower pics, they still remain so today! I love water lilies – there’s something so zen-like in their symmetry and their colors, pristine whites, pretty pinks and royal purples that it’s hard to escape their soothing effect 🙂 I have a feeling having stumbled upon this picture – that it will be one of many 😉 You have been warned 😛

I’m not into photography but enjoy the works of others.
Thank you for sharing,
Thanks or dropping by Eric 🙂 Much appreciated!
That lily certainly is a study in Zen. There’s a flooded river bed up here that grows lots of lilies in the summer. It’s one of my all-time favorite places to kayak – it’s very peaceful and meditative 🙂
Thank you Heather 🙂 I’ve always loved lilies! I can imagine how kayaking in a river with lilies would be very Zen!! I have great shots of pink ones but am still waiting on a good shot of the purple!
Incredibly beautiful picture!
Thanks M 🙂 I LOVE water lilies 🙂
I don’t think I have ever seen one in real life! 😐
You must have!! Surely hey have lotuses in Karachi?!!
Oh! Lotuses are water lilies?! 😀 *duh*
Well! I’m no expert but if they’re no the same they’re certainly close cousins 😛
Lotuses are the most fascinating flowers in my opinion….so unique! Floating on gigantic leaves in water….the very picture of Zen 🙂
I love taking flower pictures these days too! It is tough on a windy day though 🙂
Love your water lily, reminds me of an egg and perfect poem!
Thanks Elisa 😀 Looking through my flower pictures has made me want to take more! Am off to Goa for the next few days and hope to get some there!
