The MMS notification that the bank has
emptied debited my account for its credit card payment reminds me that another month has slipped away. Only one month more in Paradise – which is just as well because bit by bit my nest is being dismantled as new owners take possession of my dining room table, and the little desk, the big storage cupboard and the bookcase, the daybed out on the veranda …
It also means Marianne’s “Framed” photo challenge is about to expire without my participation, which would be a shame because I’ve some new images from our adventures up north last week – and a day down at Bentota revisiting the Bawa brothers’ sublime gardens (in the rain) on Sunday.
Beginning with the sun coming up over the ocean at Thalpe when I was down for the Galle Literary Festival last year, to a sunset from my back garden – I give you Sri Lanka in the frame (click on any image to activate the gallery).
Before I go, and most importantly, two bloggers I’ve been enjoying:
- From Rome to Guatemala and funky in between, the photography of Alessandro Ciapanna is a treat I look forward to seeing in my Reader every week. If you don’t know his work already, pop over and see what I mean.
- A young woman from Goa, Sandra D’Souza brings me a different eye – sometimes vibrant colour, mostly in dramatic monotone. Her journey in search of her style brings something fresh each post. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it too.
