For Lens-Artists Challenge #107 – Winter challenge…my thoughts and images
Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is time for home.”Edith Sitwel
Living in a hot country, India, winter ( Dec-Feb) is the season to revel under the clear blue skies, the cold permeating through the radiant flowers and trees, slurping innumerable cups of masala/herbal tea and crunching roasted peanuts around a bonfire.

My first Snow/person 2015
“The color of springtime is flowers; the color of winter is in our imagination.” Terri Guillemets.
We can splash our own colors, print our footsteps on blank miles of white sheet (snow)……(Columbia Ice Fields Alberta, Canada)
” …. if winter comes, can spring be far behind?”– Percy Bysshe Shelley.

Reporter/researcher/ feature writer/content writer/blogger/...the journey continues looking for the unusual and quirky., the realistic and make-believe. It has not always been easy. Travel happened by chance and has stayed. To me travel is knowledge with enjoyment and learning and as long as I can I will .It is a means to know peeps, places, pastimes and pleasures
Follow me as I hop onto the travel writing bus, one leisurely stop after another.
