My habitat – Versailles

My apartment in Versailles is surrounded with forests, and it has been a year since I moved here. Here are some pictures that I made during this year.

Thoughts from a Window sill

I’m leaving for my Masters in a month and figured I’d spend some time with my father before I leave. He’s off to work early and I’m home alone until dusk. I’ve been cooking, washing vessels, cleaning the house and trying to stay productive. All this work keeps me occupied and it feels like a lot of work sometimes. Until now I’ve never realised the importance of the fact that my mother had given up her career to take care of us and manage the house, and has been doing it for decades now. I sit on the window sill and contemplate a mother’s patience & perseverance, and the things she sacrifices, for her family’s well being.  

Rocky the German Shepherd

My brother and I took Rocky to Cubbon Park today after a long time. The dude ran and ran and ran, then peed all over the place marking his territory, finally sat down for a while.

Some guys with a GoPro wanted a video from Rocky’s perspective, and there he is, running around with a GoPro strapped to his back.

A normal day in Rocky’s life

An evening with Rocky on my terrace. All the photos were shot on an iPhone 5s, some of the clouds were added using an app I was experimenting with. The colours are oversaturated, I like the results though.

I had “Lion King” on my mind when I clicked this picture. He reminds me of Simba.
