It’s elemental

One of the most memorable destinations I’ve visited is India, a country of contrasts, it’s both backward and progressive. wealthy and poor, rainy and has monsoon and drought.

These little dwellings were in the Thar desert, Rajasthan.The earth was parched and only big old trees had any greenery. I can’t imagine how enough food was produced for people and livestock, but somehow they scrape an existence.

The air was filled with the sound of the helicopter flypass overΒ  over Britannia Royal naval College, when my son passed out at the end of his officer training. It was a very proud mummy day, because he’d jumped from Chief Petty Officer to Sub-lieutenant.

I’ve chosen earth and air for Amy’s elemental Lens artist challenge this week, but you can choose fire, wood or water as well.

  1. Thank you for sharing your memorable travel to India and showing us its elemental. So very unique and clever, Gilly.
    Congratulations to your son and to the proud mom! πŸ™‚

  2. A proud mom! Congrats to your son! Love your choices here, and I must say the combo of helicopter and flag/mast was a bit chocking. So close!

  3. We take so much for granted in our modern world, Gilly, but we’ll always be proud mums. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Shrouded in fog this morning on beautiful Sao Jorge island. We’re sailing to Faial this morning and I’m desperate to see whales, but at the moment I can’t even see the island we’re sailing to! πŸ™‚ Sunday hugs!

I would love to hear from you . . .
