This is one of the best quotes I’ve heard lately. Sometimes all you actually need is a Smile to make this world a better place.

“The robbed that Smiles, steals something from the thief”

-Willian Shakespeare

“Sometimes the Littlest Things take up the most room in your Heart” – Winnie The Pooh

Isn’t this as true as it can be…

Every time I pick up my camera to click these Lil Ones, I see how they’ve taken up the whole of their parents hearts forever.

Cheers & Joy, Always!




Hello friends,

Life seems to be back on track and I am clicking more and more, always on a quest to find a better picture. To shake up things on the Photography front, I participated in the Global Photo Walk by 500px on 17 Sep 2016 and ain’t I glad. The photowalk started at the Deira Fish Market & covered the Gold Souk, Spice Souk and of course the creek. Somehow my fascination for fish markets took over and I spent a lot of my time here. One of the last images I liked in the fish market sits so well in the Weekly Photo Challenge – Quest.

As I was about to exit the fish market, I noticed a dead fish lying on the drain cover. I couldn’t help but feel sorry for that little fish as my mind conjured up a story about its quest for freedom and its way back home. From getting caught in the nets of the fishermen that morning to being brought here in a bucket full of fellow fishes to somehow managing to jump out of the bucket and somehow finally reaching as far as the drain cover but finally not being able to get through the narrow openings in the drain cover and dying lying there in the Dubai heat – huh… my story was complete. The story of that lone fighter on it quest to find home again. Sad it died but at least it tried!


The Lone Fighter

All this happened within a few seconds of looking at this fish. I clicked the picture and then went away. Its funny how the human mind can travel in so many different directions and make us feel much more than what we see.

Anyhow, hope you get it too.

Cheers & Joy, Always!

Afloat- Weekly Photo Challenge

Hello! When I think Afloat, I think Venice, the city that floats . 117 islands separated by canals and linked by bridges on the Venetian Lagoon… Wow… Ain’t that just awesome! I was lucky enough to spend a couple of days in this ever floating wonderland a few years back and I am using this Weekly Photo Challenge – Afloat, to share my clicks of Venice with you. No picture can ever do justice to it, but I am still going to try. Enjoy! Cheers & joy, Always!

Here Comes the SUN… { I Love Crafts}


It’s time for a craft post again. Yipeee!!! And this one is special coz my 2 yr old helped me make it.

We made this bright and colourful masterpiece using homemade play dough (wheat flour dough). After sun drying it for 3 days, we painted it with basic water colours and dried it again. Instead of colouring at the last stage, adding food colour while mixing the dough should work equally well.

The result is here for you all to see. Easy and Impressive!!

Cheers & Joy, Always!
