Focus on This - Perigee Moon

This week's focus is on the moon at Blogging For Fun.

These are some pictures I took of the "Super Moon" that appeared on May 6 2012.

These pics were taken the next day - early morning of course.

The May super moon was 14% bigger and 30% brighter than other full Moons of 2012.

The scientific term for the phenomenon is "Perigee moon".

FMTSO - Vacations

This week's prompt at Friday My Town Shoot Out is Vacation Spots

Where do you love to vacation?
Do you go on vacation to rest and relax?
Or do you keep busy with activities?

My favourite place to vacation is my hometown of Mumbai, India.

Visiting Mumbai is always relaxing and great fun to meet up with my relatives and friends. And it's always busy, busy, busy catching up with them.

Here are some of my favourite Mumbai pictures

Taj Mahal Hotel and the Gateway of India. 

Sunset from Joggers Park. The sunsets in Mumbai are spectacular.

Relaxing at the Otters Club and looking at the palm trees is so therapeutic. I love the palm trees. They are so elegant. 

Rajabai Tower 

It's always fun to eat out in Mumbai. Some of my favourite places to eat are at:

The Copper Chimney - I love the rumali roti and kebabs 

Jewel of India - great ambience and wonderful cuisine.

Photo Hunt - Can and Monument

Sandi's Saturday PhotoHunt - Can

Recycling an old picture - taken in Wellington New Zealand. Lucky I had my camera that day.

Gattina's Saturday Photo Hunting - Monuments and Sculptures

There are so many sculptures and monuments all over the world, but I thought I would re-cycle one I had posted over a year ago from one of my favourite cities. Rome is such a beautiful city. I loved every moment of my time there and look forward to visiting again.

So here is the Colosseum, one of Rome's iconic monuments.  This is a monument one has to see to believe. The photograph just does not do it justice.

I had to take 3 pictures and stitch them together - wide angle lens not wide enough and this was way before I owned my first digital camera.

Focus on this - Trees

This week's focus is on trees at Blogging For Fun

I love palm trees. I think they are the most elegant trees I have ever seen. I love photographing palm trees whenever I visit Mumbai.

So here are a few taken in Mumbai.

This Moment - Olympic Gold

A single photo capturing a moment
A simple, special, extraordinary moment
A moment I want to pause, savour and remember

New Zealand is a small country of 4 million people and when one of our athletes win gold, that is truly a moment to pause, savour and remember.  On a ratio of population to gold medals I think we did well.

Over the last two weeks we had 5 gold medals and I watched each race live, screaming my head off until I was hoarse. No wonder my throat hurts!

So a "single" picture (I cheat a little) made up of 5 golden moments for New Zealand.

images from google images

This is the moment
This is the time
When the momentum and the moment
Are in rhyme
Give me this moment
This momentous moment ...
(from Jekyll and Hyde)

Photo Hunt - Ooooo and Paths

Sandi's Saturday Photo Hunt - Ooooo

I took this a few months ago. So glad I did as Ooooo might have been a hard one to do.

Gattina's Photo Hunting - Paths

Not the best of pictures of the New Zealand countryside (somewhere between Auckland and Wellington) taken from the train, but a path is a path!
