Living Nature

The colour green surrounds us everywhere we look, from the beautiful rich shrubs to my kitchen towel.

It’s a lively colour that speaks of freshness, life, nature, fertility, harmony, new beginnings, and healing.

It is also associated with money, finances, banking, ambition, greed, jealousy…take your pick from the list and go green.

Nature, Green

The weather is lovely, the lush green surroundings invite inhabits to while away some time in the neighbourhood park.

Green, Nature, Life, Happy

Here’s my son running around the green grassy field. I remember the softness of the carpet grass ‘cos I went barefoot and the fresh smell of mown grass is in a world of its own.

Room decor, Nature, Life, Green

Little potted plants in corners of the house spruce it up in a lovely, simple way.

Just How Green Can You Get – A Click A Day


I spy with my naked eyes…

The man in the pistachio green shirt,

taking the dark spring green leaves

to the neon green trash can

besides the corrugated green fence of the compound

with the Dartmouth green gate.

I even spy another pigment of green

across the road in the neighbour’s quarters

bordered by lush green trees and the palm green of the date tree.

How many greens do you spy?

Everyday People

Go Green – Everyday beautiful people 84


Isn’t it interesting how we use colour phrases to express a depth of meaning to certain things even emotions?

The term Going green is defined as making more environmentally friendly decisions such as to reduce, reuse and recycle and at the same time is an idiomatic expression used to express ‘Going green with envy.’

Mundane Monday

Will this become mundane?

Mundane Monday Challenge is created to find beauty in almost everything.

The challenge is simple : find beauty in everyday mundane things, capture the beauty and upload the photographs.


The two exhibits are not mundane objects in the least. Possibly, they are objects of fantasy for some people, but what drew my attention is the fact that they are electrically charged, therefore they are supposed to be eco-friendly.

I can’t very well say that I understand the technology, but having been inside one of the eco-friendly taxis in Dubai, I asked the driver how it is compared to the fuel driven car, he was full of accolades.

If this will reduce the fossil fuel burning, excavation, pollution and corrupt practices that has been associated with crude oil and gas, then this might just be the way to go in the near future.

I hope that they actually become ordinary.
