The colours of India

I have an urge travel, this is rather new to me as I always believed that I was a homebody by nature.

But as I am getting older I have this burning desire to explore the world.

To see different cultures and places.

To learn, to observe and  to experience.

To venture to places I have only read off.

One of the countries on my wanderlust list is India.

I am so taken by this beautiful country

All the images I see are full of vibrant colours.


From clothing to buildings, India just seems full of energy and life.

I would love to explore this country.

To taste the all the different types of food, already my mouth is watering at the thought of the aromatic spices that will fill the air and tingle my taste buds.

A friend who has visited India described it as intense.

Intense in everything it does.

Nothing is dull, the county just explodes colour.

“I had been seeing the world in black & white and, when brought face-to-face with India, experienced everything re-rendered in brilliant technicolour.”



I can imagine this to be true and I was interested to read this wonderful infographic presented by Great Rail Journeys, India in colour 

Its rather fascinating as it explains some of the meanings behind the colours.

It has only added to my desire to visit this beautiful country.

This vibrant, exciting colourful country.




*I was given an Indian gift pack for writing this post, but all words and opinions are my own.

Kid”s Capture the Colour

Brodie my youngest was excited to take part in this years Kid’d Capture the colour competition and exciting way to get kids interested in photography but also allow them to be more aware of whats around them.

Now Brodie was excited when she first received her camera but the art of patience is lost on my child and it wasn’t long before she got frustrated at not getting the perfect shot first time.

Saying all this I don’t think she has done too bad.

RED – I love this one it is rather edgy.


YELLOW – this one was taken from a distance and simply because she liked the car.


BLUE – This I think is my favourite as I love sky photos.



WHITE– This is her favourite ornament of mine, what other reason do you need?DSCF0215

GREEN – Her foster brothers favourite toy.DSCF0054


All together not to bad. We were selected to receive a digital camera to take part in this competition. Unfortunately we received ours after our summer holiday otherwise I do believe the scope may have been wider.
