An interesting week


It's been an interesting two weeks


Sometimes, there are just so many things occurring that the camera click keeps going. And as I haven't posted for two weeks now, I'll be including some interesting pictures I took over the last two weeks.

I think one of my favourite pictures is of the Temple in the sky taken from my lounge. I was amazed at how much it resembled the Dwarkadheesh Temple in Gujarat dedicated to Lord Krishna.




Rainbows are so magical. They always leave me feeling happy. I think of them as blessings from Heaven. This one appeared on Monday as I left for home from work. Just about everyone stopped to take a picture. Thank goodness for phones that now have good cameras. 



Usually I can only see the river through the railings but last weekend my friend's land rover gave me quite a different view. And luckily there was a bit of traffic and we stopped plumb in front of it. So of course out came my phone and here is the picture I took. 



The Farmer's Market is such an interesting place. There's always something that jumps out at us. Last Saturday we were greeted by this scene. It looked so cute surveying the scene that I had to stop and take a picture. 


And then we had a Samoan band and dance troupe entertaining the crowds. 


But I liked the drum the best.
