100 Word Wednesday – 30 – Perfection 

The Bag Lady

I walked out to the balcony, a soft cool breeze causing the ivory curtains to flow into my bedroom. The sea air was refreshing. My skin prickled feeling the coolness. My bed was hot and damp from the night before, and the breeze was welcome.

My simple breakfast sat there waiting, with a single branch of adornment. I had foolishly thought last night was the best he could do. But here I sit, gazing at him. His blue eyes sparkled in the sun, his dark skin glowing, and that smile, the one I fell for in the beginning. This? Perfection.

The Eyes of Flowers

They kept sending her flowers. She couldn’t bring herself to throw them away, these symbols of kindness, so they coated every surface, turning her house into a jungle, a rising and falling mass of green and white and pink.

She collapsed, surrounded by a sea of petals.

“I did it,” she whispered. “I killed him.”

When the police arrived hours later, she lay there still.

The Exciting World of Different Textures

Scattered Thoughts

Texture- we use this word quite often and perhaps, nobody treats this word other than a trivial one. But, have you ever mulled over the fact that everything has a texture of its own. The texture is the very basic scheme or structure of anything under the sun. While I was strolling around the beach of Digha, West Bengal, a month ago, I was astonished by the textural features of the beach. The continuous journey of the waves along with the tides has reflected in a motley of textures on the sand, making it variegated in colours and patterns.

The rocks look different; sometimes they are covered with sand, dry and dusty, and sometimes a sudden splash of waves makes them look rich and sumptuous.

GARDEN TEXTURES FOR THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE

SERENDIPITY

Photo Challenge: TEXTURE


I take a lot of texture photos. From a compositional standpoint, they are interesting, but often look more like wallpaper or the beginning of a fabric design than a proper photograph. Flowers, fields, and repetitive design can do the job. I also enjoy textures in monochrome.

Sometimes, though, the most amazing texture is in macro, where the lily is both form and texture for the photograph.

Decluttering your life doesn’t just mean tidying up your home. It can also involve getting more organized, and perhaps removing things from your life that take up too much of your time.

There’s a lot you can do to achieve your goals, from clearing out some of your stuff to reassessing some of your friendships.
