A Morning Walk in Summer

Lalbagh is at its best in summer so I am glad that someone managed to coax me one morning into a walk there. He wanted to 'tag' trees, whatever that means and had his nose buried earnestly in his phone most of the time presumably doing his tagging while I tried out my camera. Pardon this picture heavy post, but can you blame me?












I returned with this booty. Alladin's cave could not have offered me more pleasure.

I photographed the shape and texture of the seedpods




and started the beginnings of a sketch that I never completed. There is something else that I want to happen in my drawing. It is like looking for a path and not finding a way. Sometimes the best solution for that is keeping the sketchbook closed. Better drawings are known to happen after a pause.

What a gorgeous post! The sights at Lalbagh are so enchanting and I simply loved the portraits of the seed-pods:)

No, I cannot blame you at all, and these photos are so wonderful, they almost make me feel that I was there. Those seed pods are glorious!
