Let me take this week’s theme literally 🙂
The subject here is a long foot bridge over a beautiful back water in north Kerala…
Please have a look 🙂
“It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.”
This week’s theme given me a chance to view the change of pace of life from a different angle, and how people miss to appreciate the beauty of nature while rushing…
Let me share my first entry for the Photography 101 challenge,
Thanks a lot for Paula’s entry for this theme 🙂 which is the inspiration behind this post…
Is it a bit of an exaggeration to call my native Kerala, “God’s Own Country” ???
This question used to pop up in my mind on seeing ads from Kerala Tourism department.
But, one year of travel through the length and breadth of this state wiped off all the doubts in my mind.
And now it’s your turn 🙂
We were on our way to watch the annual Snake Boat Race, organized by “Navodaya Club“, at Mangalassery. A small village of Kannur district in North Kerala. This was the view waited for us, as we took a turn and descended to the riverside.
We stopped for a while and savored the beauty at our backyard for some time.
People always associate “Vallam Kali” or “snake boat race” to the vast backwaters of south kerala.
Here, in northern districts of Kannur and Kasaragod it’s a rare event and been introduced only a few years back. This year’s event was the third edition at Mangalassery and held on 21st September.
Before the race began there was a tableau showcasing the art and culture of the region.
As it’s something quite new for most of the crowd, they really enjoyed even the practice sessions.
Scorching sun didn’t have any effect on the festive mood and people made their own custom VIP seats and enjoyed the show 🙂
As the real race started, I just became part of the crowd.
The event, the crowd and more than anything else, the whole setting by nature, certainly had an unforgettable impression on us.
I am sure, I’ll be back there for the next edition…
You need luck,more than anything else, to get a good image. That’s one of my philosophy on photography 🙂
But it’s debatable and you can decide whether the image below is a good one 🙂
I just loved the way butterflies descents and lands on flowers, and let me share such an image for this week’s photo challenge,
