I have been tagged by Sujata and the rules of the photo tag are:
1. Open your first photo folder.
2. Scroll to the 10th photo.
3. Post the photo on your blog and tell the story behind it and
4. Tag people to do the same.
So here is mine…….
This one is certainly not one of my better shots, and the only excuse I can offer is that I was just learning to use my new digital camera. My sister-in-law had come to Bombay for Diwali and we had headed off to Shirdi for the Diwali holidays. All of us wanted a break and a proper vacation, something which Shirdi does not offer, and decided to head to Bordi…..you can read about our trip here.
Anyway, there we were, on Diwali…….. on a beach drier than anything we had ever seen, and Sandhya and Shankar headed off to find fire crackers. Samhith was thrilled at the idea, but once we began, he was so scared that he refused to participate, and huddled behind us in fear!!! I am not too fond of crackers either, and I occupied myself taking photos of Shankar trying to induce Samhith to set off at least one cracker while the others enjoyed themselves……..
Of course, that was two years back…. Today, it’s another story with Samhith looking forward to lighting crackers by himself this year!!!! Of course, none of us like the ones which make a big bang, and enjoy setting off only the simple ones like flowerpots and Bhoomi chakras….
Now, here’s the part where I get to read about others’ memories……
I tag T&S , Lakshmi, Sankara, Aaarti,Patricia and Srivats….
Looking forward to reading your posts…..
