It’s been some time since I shared Snubnose’s work on this blog. Nowadays, I usually just put up an Instagram post. But of late, I am realizing that it gets lost within the sea of photos over there, and so I am restarting the practice of blogging about her art work.
These are some late photos from the Lalbagh flower show.
Every year on Republic Day, flower shows are organized at the Lalbagh Botanical Garden. The event is jointly organised by Department of Horticulture and Mysore Horticulture Society, and is one of my most favorite events to attend.
It can get very crowded though, and so this time I opted not to take the kids – just me and my camera.
It’s been a long time since I shared an art work by Snubnose. There have been some reasons for that. Firstly, Snubnose took a short break from art during the summer holidays and just spent the long hot days playing with her friends, swimming, and athletic classes.
Piglet’s horse riding classes are going on in full steam. His initial reluctance and fears were wiped away within the first five classes, and he’s now getting confident on his seat, even eschewing the beginner ring, and instead holding his reins to control the horse.
I have also started to feel a little more relaxed about these classes. I was nervous initially because a scared Piglet can be pretty unpredictable, but the teacher was wonderful, calming him down, and riding with him until he got comfortable.
So now that I am a little relaxed, I thought I’d spend a little time honing my till now non-existent photography skills and try to capture those free horses who are not involved in the class.
I was on a photography trip a couple of weeks back. Only instead of taking candid shots of the kids or the pup, or lovely stuff, or verdant Cubbon Park that I like to do (and share on Instagram), I have been taking ugly photos of Bangalore, of the havoc that the heavy rains caused on our roads.
I guess I was bored stuck in traffic jams (sometimes for a record 3 hours), just to travel a 5-km wide stretch of Outer Ring Road to get to my office.
