New York

New York taking inspiration from Puneri Patya? Lol. There was a show going on on the side and instead I notice this.

The extreme lack of parking in NYC and exasperated officials putting up exasperated signs!

This was shot last year at Mumbai with a very basic point and shoot camera. But I still like it!

Two weeks in pictures!

November 13, 2012 § 2 Comments

SO…. the power is back up. (It was back last monday really) So life is back to normal. Although we still have to figure out how much the NY transit is working… but its good. Much better than last week or so.

It has been dramatic, the last twenty days, to say the least. So we are today going to go on a pictorial journey of the two weeks!

We were utterly in love with fall, my sweetheart and I. The orange leaves floating down in the gentle breeze beckoned us to visit. It was simply lovely!

 

But then there was that dreadful hurricane Sandy. Dreadful. Power out for more than a week. That night the wind was killing outside. Howling through the buildings and trees. Well, we were thankfully safe inside and stocked up with candles. Ten days dinner was in candlelight!

The aftermath was… well. As expected. Trees down everywhere. How difficult it must be. Took all those years to grow as tall as they do and one night its all over in the wind! The poor trees.

Bored with the darkness for days at end, we went for a trip to DC to stay with friends. It was such a change from the dark evenings!

When we came back the power was back and everything was running! Of course a day after returning we were welcomed with snow all over… My heart goes out to those without power in the snowstorm. Hope everyone was okay!

But no matter. Everything has almost turned to normal and we are all geared up to celebrate Diwali – the festival of light! And of course no diwali is complete without the traditional lantern or akash kandil as we call it. I used to make one in India every year… so I had to make one here too. From whatever material I could find!

Which brings me to my next wish…

Wish you all a very very happy diwali! For those who celebrate it and also to those who dont…   May your life be a festival of lights and may it be filled with hope, joy and loads and loads of happiness! Wish all that you set out to do comes true and you are blessed with success and prosperity!
