Purple skies







It was love that brought you to me that cold December morning as I sat out on the porch, gazing out into the purple skies ahead, sleepy eyes watching the lazy dawn unfurl infront of me. It was love that sat you next to me, that stretched the long rays of the early morning sun and filled the empty space between us and brought you closer to me. It was love that filled the silence of that morning and said everything that needed to be said even as we sat side by side not needing to say anything at all because the biggest of little words had already been spoken - I love you.

It is love that sits you next to me right now, watching the sun setting into the sky ahead of us. Is it just me, or does the sky still have the same purple hue it did back then? I still love you.

Wow! simply superb pictures :). No words or imaginations can ever able to fill the sky with colors so beautifully and you know what? These pictures have a magical effect. I guess its time for me to change my wallpaper, all credit goes to you. So a BIG Thank you.

After reading your post I would rather give the title of the post as :”You know it's love”, but nevertheless “Purple Skies” is a good name also. In the end, I can say its on of the best post from you.

P.S: I have picked all these pics as my favorite but I will send you a special request separately for one of the picture which I think speak my mind now :).

Abhijit said...

all shots are great! lovely sky and reflections!!

Trevor Penn said...

Hey, These've got to be some of the best i've seen here!

Just one suggestion. Keeping the horizon on one of the thirds makes for better composition. :-)

Blu said...

I was waiting for your next post and WOW. Every bit of the photographs is a delight. A wonderful weave of words too.

BRAVO.

Best wishes to you from Blu x

Rahi said...

yaar aap log itte acche photos kaise le sakte ho. shayad ye mere fisaddi camerey ki khami hai. recession khatam ho to badhiya sa camera lunga

Rolling said...

lovely,wd you do sunshine pictures one day? I know sunsets are colourful but I love the golden twang of sunshine and the dividing line that appears - its amazing to watch it from hill stations.

Zeba said...

You have such an amazing sense of imagery. Even without those photographs, reading away your writing is just plain wonderful.

bindu said...

Gorgeous pictures! I love all the layers of colors. And your words fit them perfectly.

navin said...

Great shots. Lovely sky

~vagabond~ said...

@Alok:

Your compliment totally made my day. I'm glad you liked the photos and my writing...your kind words were very encouraging to me.

LOL. I did think about calling the post "Love" but then went with "purple skies"...oh well, it is what is now.

And yes, you may pick whichever one you feel most connected to. :)

~vagabond~ said...

@Abhi:
Thank you...I'm flattered that you like them. :)

~vagabond~ said...

@Trevor:

Thanks for the compliments!
Yes, following the rule of thirds would have perhaps made them look better. I have a hard time remembering the rules when I'm in the moment, clicking away. :)

~vagabond~ said...

@Blu:

Thanks, Blu...glad you liked the post. :)

~vagabond~ said...

@Rahi:

LOL. Remember, there are no fissadi cameras there are only fissadi photographers. :P I could not resist. Speaking of fissadi cameras, you have no idea what a drama queen my camera can be when it's forced to take photos in cold temperatures, with very low lighting. Kab le rahe ho badhiya sa camera? Mere liye bhi le lena. :P

~vagabond~ said...

@Trisha:

Will try to take you your sunshine photo as soon as I get some sunshine around here. It's been snowing non-stop for the past three days here and I cant wait for some sunshine too! *sigh*

~vagabond~ said...

@Zeba:

Where'd you disappear? Thank you for your nice compliments...glad you like my writing. :)

@Bindu:

Thanks...glad you like them! :)

@Navin:
Thank you! :)

Are you James Bond's sister ?

oh deeah ! when was this ? This month ? You have pink sky all over north of US. Looks like you threw some paint on the sky. Your sun is soft and beautiful, our sun here in India is big harsh yellow.

Vagabond is the most unsuitable name for a person with a delicate mind like you.
i am Bond, Vagbond !

Vagabond sounds like you are carrying a rocket launcher, huge machine guns, and i can make a wild guess that your camera must be a Canon.
Canon (thope in Hindi)

The pictures are like paintings
simblee gorrgous !
and
Thanks

Talking To My Soul said...

Lovely pictures. And, so well complimented by the words. Together they make for a superb post. WOW!

Loved it. Yes, thanks for visiting my blog.

*cheers*

~vagabond~ said...

@rauf:

I am flattered that you like the photos...LOL...as for my pseudonym, it is what it is. And nope, I dont use a canon...I'm a nikon user so so much for your thope theory. :)

~vagabond~ said...

@Soul:

I'm glad you liked the post. It was a pleasure to view your blog. Welcome to mine. :)

Paras said...

I like the third photo where the wings are spread and the sixth one where there is just one bird. All are beautiful!

bindu said...

hey Vagabond, you had asked about my volunteer group, and how you can get involved. Just go to www.aidindia.org, and take a look at chapters - there might be one near you. I know there are chapters in Bloomington and in Chicago. If all the chapters are too far, you can either sign up to be on the email list of the nearest chapter, and stay involved with their projects via email and an occasional visit, or, if there is enough interest, you can start your own chapter where you are. Larger chapters will be linked with yours to provide help. There is more info at this website on volunteering etc. Take a look, and let me know if you have questions. Thanks for your interest!

Vamsee said...

What you wrote is poetry - absolutely beautiful

I love the pictures. Sunset is such a beautiful time of the day. I can watch the sun set every single day and still never get tired of it.

It must be great to live close to that beautiful lake.

~vagabond~ said...

@Paras: Thanks for telling me your favorites...and welcome to my blog! :)

~vagabond~ said...

@Bindu:

Will definitely look into it. Thanks for sharing the info. :)

@Vamsee:

Thanks. Yes, the lake is the nicest part about living here. And I love sunsets too. There's no such thing as too many sunsets. :)

ashes said...

Lovely photos! I like the first and last ones the most. And a lovely writeup too.

mosilager said...
