More Illuminated Gods

Another street scene, not sure exactly where in Bangalore, multiple god figures light up the night.

Luminous Leaf

I knew it had to be called something other than the b-word, but it makes for nice abstract color images.

Flowers!

Another vu of the same tropical tree, blooming, as shown a couple weeks ago, in afternoon light.

Glowing Fragrance

Sure I would like to reveal discovery of a self-illuminating fragrant tropical tree blossom but… this is from a nite walk with a small LED flashlight illuminating the subject.

Banana Crazy

For some reason I shot a lot of banana photos in this early 2014 time period.

Banana bread, made in our microwave/convection oven, possibly with only one electric interruption. Not from the same bananas in the other photo.

A nice bunch of bananas the 4″ variety, on the perimeter of the land of the workshop in Electronics City.

Yes, You There

Yes, unlike some recent images this is an actual live lizard type creature. Probably about 12″. Grabbing some morning sun til some darn westerner came along with some gadget pointed at it.

Gratuitous Filtration

Hey time to take a break from historical photos to current, and some more wild visual action! These sunset-lit clouds a couple weeks ago in central CA were impressive but Aperture’s Toy Camera filter really makes them rock! Or whatever the kids say these days.

Soaking Sun

Like a satellite dish receiving radio waves, this flower on the work grounds grabs some nourishing sun waves.

Ok so enough of the animals, now on to plants. This is a flowery tree we had in a planter in front our home, until the planter cracked, so we took it to the work campus and planted it outside the canteen (background), where it grew slowly but at least kept going.

Blur in the presence of greatness

Not being locals we weren’t sure why large lit idols would appear over streets like this, perhaps some festival or observance, but looks impressive esp at night, like the god is flying over the street, in this case, Durga and tiger.

Sorry about the blur.

Hopper

Continuing the underfoot wildlife theme, not intentionally, noted this resident of the grounds while out at night with the puppy. He liked to put his paw on them and we tried to stop him licking them, but, you know, puppies…

Barefoot hazard

On a routine walkabout the grounds, noticed this unfortunate snake nearly under foot. Good thing I always wore chappals/sandals/flip-flops outdoors.

Fuzzy New Neighbor

Not long after returning from the coastal visit in early 2014, a new visitor, or rather, life partner joined up with us, a German Shepherd puppy, son of two watchdogs at a client’s factory. Three guinea fowl (source of the feather in the earlier image) check out the new arrival taking his lunch.

Now that I’m looking at it, I discover the interesting collection of twos as well as a 3 and a 1.
