I didn’t take a lot of pictures this weekend (although I did see a lot of giant Lego figurines!), but here’s something I thought was pretty, a jewelled, colourful lamp which threw some beautiful patterns on the wall. I’ve always been a fan of stained glass and glass patterns, and this a good combination of both – something pretty for the dark evenings, eh?
We’ve had a busy weekend at the Harlequin family house, with my sister celebrating her first wedding anniversary, and also doing her registry ceremony. Here’s a peep at the beautifully decorated registry hall, which was full of creams, golds and pretty flowers : )
It’s wedding season right now (yaay!) and I thought I’d post one of the photos from some of the weddings I’ve been to in the past for this week’s challenge. It’s always nice to have traditional pictures of the bride and groom, the cake and of the amazingly-dressed guests, but after a while it can get a bit boring to take the same pictures over and over again!
Here’s one pictures of a couple on their wedding day, being embraced by a sister in the background, with the focus being on…strawberries. I love this shot because of the colour of red which is a theme throughout the picture. It’s also a picture I love because a friend and I got the idea of doing our own decor do the wedding and placing bowls of strawberries throughout the tables, which was a very popular idea with the guests too!
So for me, this picture not only sums up the sweet moments of the wedding, but it also represents all the running around and the laughs that I had with one of my closest friends : )
These beauties were made by my (very talented) sister, for a mehndi party yesterday – the theme was sparkles, rainbow colours and of course, yummy cupcakes (which got demolished very quickly!)
To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.

The word fleeting means a lot of various things to different people. As part of this week’s Weekly Photo challenge, I’m posting a lit-up, colourful merry-go-round, perhaps to symbolise fleeting times spent at a fair, fleeting childhood, or just a fleeting five-minutes on a ride. You pick.
…in my case anyway. How scrumptious do these look?! It’s not often I get to see some amazing chocolate art up close but this stuff looked crazily detailed, and rich enough to make anyone nauseous! Mind you, this stuff wouldn’t last long in my house (the ice-cream would get eaten by one of my sisters first). I like to think that when it comes to amazing chocolate stuff like this, people’d SAVOUR it when it goes into their mouths.
