Photo Hunt #79: Covered

For once there is a theme that I didn’t spend too much time looking for pictures to post.  I already knew weeks in advance – when the themes for the week were posted by Ms Tnchick – what I would use for this week. 

Covered heads, wedding going on at the gurdwara in Fremont.  There is a large Indian community in Fremont and in the entire Silicon Valley region.

Covered heads, Bay to Breakers marathon, San Francisco.

More covered heads, Sikh parade, Yuba City, CA.

Here is the home of the PHOTO HUNT.

Sky Watch #86:

Ever since I joinoed Sky Watch I got pretty OC with snapping sky photos.  I do it all the time, walking in the park, getting my groceries, or riding in cars.  And I become manic.  I shoot and shoot and drive my husband crazy by my constant snapping.   As a result I have quite a few of sky shots in my archive.  So I was pretty dismayed to find these images still sitting there.

We were driving home from a camping trip in Lake Shasta on a hot, dry California summer .   I am not sure now if this was in I-5 or in Hwy 505.  The sky was particularly pretty that day.

And in my skywatching I noticed something in the sky I haven’t seen before. I don’t know what it was.  I begged my husband to look up and see if I was seeing what I was seeing.  But he was more interested in driving.  As you can see from the first image, there was hardly any traffic that time so he could take a peek, but he didn’t see it.

And so I took a closer shot, maxed out my zoom capability.  Only when we uploaded it on the computer did my husband see that I saw.  Can anyone help in identifying this “phenomenon”?

My World #68: I Left My Heart (Just kidding)

It was a rare sunny day in the city by the bay, still clear when typically the fog should’ve rolled in and covered the city like a thick blanket of cold.  But why do I feel a tinge of sadness at this picture of two women, who came to to Land’s End to bask in the sun alone.  I haven’t seen their faces, I walked past them to continue with my walk, but the image they created with the Golden Gate in the background left an indelible mark on my brain.  Time’s like this I wish I was born a poet.

Walking towards the car, I took another look at the bridge and another image interested me and so I snapped it.  Again I have not seen her face, but somehow the photograph also exudes a little bit of melancholy.  What do you think?  Whoever said SF is a romantic city may have not been to Land’s End.

I’m just shooting from the hip here.  Sometimes I may have an overactive imagination.

Window Views and Doors Too #17:

In 2006 when I started my photoblog, WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS, I went round SF photographing windows and doors because I was fascinated by the Victorian houses and Spanish mission style homes.  I ran a series of windows for that blog and then other subjects got in the way.  Hence, I am so delighted when Teach Mary started a meme about these subjects that are so very close to my heart.

Lately, I have started shooting windows and doors again whenever I run an errand to the city.  And here’s one of those I recently snapped.

WINDOW VIEWS AND DOORS TOO is a meme hosted by Teach Mary.

Watery Wednesday #53: Land’s End

I love this part of the city that I only discovered last year.  It’s a pity sometimes that we don’t enjoy our towns and cities as much as we can and always look forward to exploring other places.

There are more watery images at WATERY WEDNESDAY.

My World #67: I’m In Love

MVI_0540, originally uploaded by M’roy.

This week I became an adopted parent to a 2-year little darling named Emma. She has since stolen all of our hearts and filled our lives with added layer of joy and satisfaction. Here she is taking a nap while hubby and I watch tv in our bedroom on a wet, windy, and cold Easter Sunday.
