Jagged Shards

The jagged shards of somebody’s drunken night, lay scattered on the rough road.

The golden rays of the sun washed over the fragments , lending them an opalescent sheen.

They resembled, pale ghosts of uncut diamonds, a masquerade of baubles and cast-offs.

All stacked up

Cee’s Photo Challenge- Stacked or Piled Up


This one is from a brick kiln nearby.


Beside our highways, there are spaces like these that serves as half way houses for trucks. There are no sleeping arrangements, only facilities for fuel, air and washroom. These piled up tyres are sort of silent billboards for trucks.

Don’t know what these are.. It reminded me of the time when I was taught to draw grapes 🍇 as a child…This resembles a child’s upside down drawing of a bunch of grapes..

Tomatoes, onion rings, fried eggs, salami..all stacked up for a sandwich.

These are stacked up concrete frames from a nearby construction site.

Bell Tower of St Augustine.

St Augustine’s Tower

St Augustine Tower and Church complex ruins stand high up on the Monte Santo (Holy Hill) at Velha Goa (Old Goa). Built by the Augustinian friars who arrived in Goa in 1587, it was also the then site of the enormous church of Nossa Senhora da Graça (Our Lady of Grace). The Tower and the Church were built in 1602.

There is a rich history associated with this complex which is built in laterite stone. The picture is just of the ruins of the bell tower. The remains of its stone architecture is now a UNESCO Heritage site and is being preserved by The Archeological Society of India.

The St Augustine Tower site was also found to hold the precious remains of the Georgian Queen Ketevan. And, it is also the site of the Ketevan World Sacred Music festival held each year at the end of February.

The Pipeline over Still Water.

Which Way Photo Challenge by Alive And Trekking

The Pipeline over Still water

I could see the evening sun rays changing the blue of the pipeline from azure to cobalt blue, as I tried to capture it from different angles, just like the edit icon on a brightness and saturation control.

The bow of the boat sliced the dark reflection of the pipeline in a perfect streamline.

The trailing waves like the transparent train of a bridal veil…

The visions that wait for us, if we a take a moment to pause and see.
