They are There

It had been drizzling the whole morning. I did not remove my camera from my backpack not for this reason, I was simply not inspired. I let free my huff to chase after the puff, my sweat to race with the pumping pulse.

It was still drizzling when I reached the car park. I wanted to visit the dam for a look at the ripples which start small as a dot. There must be many dots and circles right now.

Not until then, I sat down, stared at the water, I withdrew my camera as though I was preparing my pencil and paper. I had seen something in my mind.


I was asked again in the comment box, and I am fond of answering you that when I am alone in the jungle, someone who is invisible or not is actually accompanying me. When I stared at the water, I had found this little plant. It was little but big enough to soothe my mind. It was ordinary but special enough to be painted in my eyes.


And when my camera moved along, the nature talked to me silently, through a tiny flower. I talked without speaking a word, through my mighty camera.

If you think we had only a short conversation, then you were wrong. The nature replied me with some droplets on the leaves. What had I said? That's is my secret.

By the way, they are everywhere. I am not alone.

Awesome captures of the conversation you had with nature that day in the jungle. :)

It's always to be in touch with mother nature, gives us the chance to think, be in touch with ourselves and be thankful for everything it has given us.

Cheryl said...

Wonderful photos and words! I too seem to be drawn to what is around me all the time but perhaps not noticed.

I like the way you express the beauty of nature!

Salitype said...

sometimes in our quest for perfect beauty, we tend to overlook it is in everything we see...

nature has offer us wonders after wonders - from the rising of sun till it sets, from time immemorial till date - it's just that we are simply pre-occupied to see it!

i love the photos,it's a great reminder how generous the nature is to those who appreciates it!you are one lucky guy, rain. lucky indeed!

Your photos are always very delicate, and beautiful..Having a conversation with nature is still better than having a conversation with oneself, which I do..

Beautiful images rainfield. That little plant is exceptional due to the different colors it displays and the droplets of water on the leaves are awesome.

Ayie said...

You won't share your conversation? Well the photos can talk too, more than enough to understand them =)

Ayie said...

enjoy the rest of the week!

I'm glad you are not alone and glad that the plant stopped you for a conversation. Most of all I'm glad you did your talking through your camera and shared the results with us.

Nature has it own ways of communicating with the people,from the sunset to give us the much needed vitamin D,from the rain which waters the soil, from the plants which give us the much needed oxygen and so on and so fort...nature is a complete wonder and beauty.

Your photos are lovely as ever.Have a wonderful day rainfiled.

Sharkbytes said...

Love the details! It's amazing how something so simple as the first one can look so artistic.

Ratty said...

I think maybe your conversations with nature may be similar to mine. I often talk to the things I see. It's mostly a silent talk, but sometimes I talk out loud too.

There is so much beauty around us that we sometimes tend to overlook. But here you found serenity and beauty in these simple things.

Nature has so much to teach us if we are willing to listen and learn. Your photos are so beautiful and say more than mere words can express.
