Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf,
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day
Nothing gold can stay.
~ Robert Frost.
A painting is worth 1000 words. However, what is edited out of a photograph could well be much more.
The Pandeys were loading their holiday photos on whatsapp. Their 11 year old daughter (pichkoo) was watching them. As they opened the prompt pic in gallery – Pichkoo quipped in ‘Daddy, Daddy’
Where are those monster mosquitoes in the pic?
And where is that large waste dump?
And the bad smell?
Photographs are visual darling.
OK, will you be telling your friends that I suffered with fever for a week after the visit to that river?
