Yes I think to myself………what a wonderful world!
And if you still aren’t convinced, I think you should go check out my archives 🙂
Jake’s Sunday Post – Wonderful
This may be a bit mundane and too close to home for you but I did feature an Indian photo challenge on my Every pic blog today… http://everypicturetellsone.wordpress.com/2012/11/04/weekly-photo-challenge-geometry-india/
Those are quite lovely and not mundane anymore, although that used to be a common means of transportation through the backwaters of my hometown! The challenge sounds interesting. I have no images that are good enough strangely! Am going to try and click new ones if I can. Thanks for sharing the link 🙂
Sorry, I realised after I had posted it that I wasn’t being very clear, especially I was talking about two photo challenges in one post!
I meant you might find it mundane to consider photos of your home country because I think it is often harder to view where we live with fresh eyes such as those of a visitor. And if you don’t think you have any good ones maybe that proves my point.
I’ll probably go for the second and third categories unforgettable, it stays with you and wherever you are.
I don’t think any of mine fit the incredible category, and I can hardly nip back and take some more photos. Sadly. Although maybe one day…
Thank you Boomie. These scenes are somehow reminiscent of your wonderful verses 🙂
I am convinced! 🙂
Those gardeners are to be commended then 😀
These are beautiful. We are so fortunate to be able to go to places (including through your lens) were we can have our souls nourished by this beauty.
Thank you Pat! I am ever grateful too 🙂
Pat, just so you know, your gravatar links to an ‘Alyssa Kohler’s’ blog – also titled ‘A New Day’!
Truly wonderful! 🙂
Thank you Nandini 🙂
Ohh great….i wish i get an opportunity to feel this beauty…you’ve got a nice blog
I have no doubt you will, someday 🙂 Thank you for the visit and comment.
Some of the things I really miss here in Amman are parks and gardens… Thanks for offering us some “greenness”. I really needed it!
Delighted you enjoyed these garden shots Adwoa 🙂 We too sorely miss green public spaces around here.
These pics are really wonderful!
Thank you Elisa 🙂
Excellent entry Madhu for this week topic ,
Thanks for sharing your wonderful paradise images on earth,wow 🙂
My pleasure entirely Jake. Thank YOU for the inspiration 🙂
Seen from your eyes, it is!!!!
Thank you Marina 🙂 Unlikely this would look less beautiful from any perspective!
It is SUCH a wonderful world, Madhu, and Japan is particularly wonderful! Beautiful shots!
It truly is! Apologies for my long absence from your site Cathy. Shall try and catch up shortly 🙂
Don’t worry, Madhu; I’ve been absent myself and have a lot of catching up to do. I just went to Ethiopia and haven’t even begun to post about that. We all have to get our material first!! 🙂 It looks like your trip to Japan was amazing…
Great slideshow Madhu. These gardens look so tranquil. 🙂
Thank you LuAnn 🙂
If I disappear into your archives, I may never come out again, Madhu.
That is a sweet thing to say Jo 🙂 But you don’t need convincing, you have taken us to some wonderful places yourself!
It truly is a wonderful world and you are wonderful too for sharing your travels with us 🙂
Grateful to you for coming along for the ride Judy 🙂
A wonderful place to be and see.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
It absolutely is Francine 🙂
A wonderful world indeed, and glorious photos too. The Japanese Do know how to make gardens. 🙂
They do don’t they? Thanks Imelda 🙂
Your slideshow is fabulous Madhu, I really love the tall straight trees that seem to be growing in the water – beautiful!
Thanks Gilly. A confession…your magnificent oak was the inspiration for this post 🙂
You deliver everytime … stunning photos – from the most beautiful places. What a pleasure to visit your world.
And my pleasure to see you here Viveka 🙂 Thank you for your kind comments.
Have missed your around my world … too! *smile
loved that colorful tree 🙂
Thanks Joshi! Your roti seller was stellar 🙂
What a magical place, Madhu. Love your photos, especially the one of the bridge. Marvellous! 🙂
Thank you AD. That one is my favourite too 🙂
Beautiful – thanks for sharing!
Thank YOU CA 🙂
Gardens, landscape, temples,… are poetically presented in Japan. Your beautiful photos make me want to revisit now. 🙂
Thanks Amy 🙂 would like to return too and do it at my pace someday! Did you go a long time ago?
It was like 16 some years, gosh. 😕 and, I lost those pics…
Wonderful shot… 🙂
Thank you Ledrake 🙂
Thank You Rexlin 🙂
I am totally convinced! Wonderful images, Madhu 🙂
Thanks Marianne. I didn’t really expect anyone not to be 🙂
Was anyway convinced,but am dead sure about the world being beautiful now!
Great, I reaffirmed your conviction then! Thanks Nabadip, always a pleasure to see you here 😀
I come from a family of gardners and I love and appreciate the work and planning that creates them. This is a beautiful place, Madhu…wonderful trip. My apologies for getting behind in replies…our visits to MIL are daily and lengthy.
thank you for your JAPAN slide show, Madhu!
Wow Madhu…when i saw these I started humming ‘it’s a wonderful world’ and now it is driving me crazy…the song I mean
I thought I recognized those images! Beautiful photos of this lovely Kenrokuen Garden. I went there when I was working in Kanazawa. Glad you got to visit this place.
These are just stunning, what a beautiful place.
You really did the area justice with your photography, Madhu – gorgeous job! (Making me homesick for Japan!)
Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed visiting your blog.
What an idyllic place! Your photos are lovely – what wonderful scenes 🙂
Such a beautiful garden and you have captured it beautifully and perfectly Madhu. I feel as if i was walking through all the greenery with you.
I would love it there 🙂 A wonderful post, no doubt!
You’re right, Madhu. The world is a wonderful place.
You you’ll get no argument from me about that, Madhu, as you know!
Your pictures of Kenrokuen Gardens, as examples of just how wonderful this world can be are fantastic. The aesthetic of the Japanese garden as a stylised representations of nature has always appealed to me, and these gardens are all and more than I’ve ever imagined. I’m so glad your sister persuaded you to go to Japan with her – the timing was perfect and somehow seeing your pictures is much more satisfying than looking at photographs in glossy coffee table books.
Great post – magnificent response to Jake’s ‘impossible’ challenge 🙂
A wonderful world indeed. Beautiful landscape with calm, healing waters.
Yes, the world is wonderful… The people in it just need to respect and treat each other with dignity and love.
It sure is!!! xoxoxox
So peaceful and serene! I need to blow up these photos and cover my office windows with them!
It’s so beautiful, pictures so awecome!
Thanks for sharing with us.
