The colours of Spring

It's Spring in the Southern Hemisphere so time to post some Spring pictures.

The hills look so green and the flowers look beautiful.

Not a great time for allergy sufferers as there is pollen flying everywhere but it's a time for visual beauty.

Every season is different and pretty in it's own way. But in Spring everything looks fresh, lush and colourful.

Here are my Spring pics (click on pics to enlarge).

Wellington Airport

Wellington is a very picturesque city.

I never tire of seeing Wellington from the air - the city looks so spectacular.

Here is a picture of Wellington Airport taken from Roseneath.

Mumbai's day of Terror

Having posted my 9/11 pics, it's only fair to dedicate this post to the Mumbai 2008 attacks.

Mumbai is a city dear to my heart. It was heartbreaking to watch on TV.

Peace and love to Mumbai, to those who lost their lives that day and to those who live with its memory.

Here are some pics I took on my visit soon after the attacks.

 Gateway of India

 Taj Mahal Hotel

 Oberoi Trident Hotel

The Air India Building (target of a former attack some years ago)
and the Oberoi Trident 
(this pic taken on one of my former visits)

Check out my other Mumbai pics.

Never Forget - 9/11

Ten years ago the world watched in horror as the twin towers collapsed in New York.

I remember being woken up early with the phone ringing - my brother letting us know they were all safe.

I thought it would be appropriate to dedicate today's photos to ground zero.  These pics were taken Jan 2005.

Standing there you could feel the sadness all around.

To all who lost their lives that day - may you find Peace in God's home.

To those who lost loved ones that day - may God comfort you and give you strength.

Love and hugs to all
