A few months ago, we heard about this new locale in Jeddah. Green Valley! A place teeming with water. Green grass. And life.
People rave about this place. Some say its a natural water body in the middle of the Arabian desert. Some say the water is processed waste water. The truth is, nobody knows. The latter theory is the most probable.
Anyway. There is water. Flowing water. Maybe a mile long. And there’s fish too. God knows where they came from! An entirely new ecosystem has sprung up. Probably wild dogs are on top of the food chain. And lots of birds. Pity I didn’t have my telephoto.
I did get some shots of the nearby vegetation.
And where there’s vegetation, there are critters!
And like in every ecosystem, new or old, life is always accompanied by death. And here’s something that reminds me of that!
Its been awhile since my last post.
A short month long vacation to my homeland, Kerala, culminated a week ago. Its been 3 years since my last visit home.
This vacation was all about nostalgia. Revisiting familiar places. Meeting past friends.
I have chosen a few images, that brings a lot of memories.
And I have chosen the much hyped “Prisma” app to process these images:
The land of coconuts
Tea Stalls and steamy tea
The local’s favorite pass time – Fishing
Abundant Paddy fields
The local bus
And the people
This is my home…
