Enroute on the Hoysala Trail


The journey down the Hoysala trail has some interesting vignettes and its not always temples and sculptures that make pretty images..I saw several groups of nomads moving with their bag and baggages, their people and pets..and this little group with a pampered pup caught my attention ..

The pup turned its face the moment it saw the camera..but finally I managed to get a couple of shots as the car whizzed past..they may not be great compositions, but beautiful moments ..I wonder where their journey takes them ..

Simple and beautiful pics. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, in your case I guess it is through the lens. (bow)

Some very nicely captured shots there...the first pic just looks like a painting at first glance...lovely!

Alok said...

Cool pics again !! The best example I can find – Life is a compilation of endless journeys and we all witness it, the moment we see such things around us.

The interesting thing we can discover is that these journeys failed to tire us :)
