Tamarind


As I was walking back from the gym, I chanced upon this tamarind tree full of fruit. It's been ages since I saw this sight. I stopped and stared for quite a while before I reached for my mobile phone to take a picture.

Back, And Settling Down

I took several random pictures to capture the greenery outside the train on my way back from vacation last Sunday. I ended up with a lot of palm trees, coconut trees, canals, paddy fields and the like, but didn't realise this picture had managed to capture a farmer/shepherd and even a bird in flight. It's not clear, of course, but I love it.

Loosing It!


The above is my photo, the clearer one below is The Spouse's, who took it on my request - I was too lazy to be a professional on vacation. The place has definitely dumbed down since we grew up and left!

The Past Three Days

Waiting, waiting, waiting, for the train to arrive - it was three hours late.

Making Do


I have no other picture for the day so I shot this when I stopped to buy some fruit from here. Most of the fruit here (and everywhere else) is imported and I don't buy if I can help it, but today, I bought two apples.

Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind


We had a small party in the office and I watched with a sinking heart as the chocolate cake made its way down my throat like satin. I very well couldn't have not eaten it with several others sure to ask why.

I resolutely held on to the puff, though, and slipped it into my draw once I got back to my corner - out of sight, out of mind.

Chugging Along


I tried to catch the train as it passed by, lights in windows flashing by, I ended up only with this!


I uploaded this for yesterday but it didn't get uploaded. Yesterday was the first day I forgot to upload a picture and remembered only this morning instead.

The story behind the peanuts is here.

Wrong Picture


I wanted to post something else but I deleted it by mistake. This adorned a restaurant we just had dinner at.

House


To me this looked like it could be in a quiet, pastoral place but it was smack dab in the middle of the city, at a busy crossroads.
