Aurora | #ThursdayTreeLove - 1

Bangalore, India - July 2019

I'm happy to have finally jumped on to the bandwagon called #ThursdayTreeLove. Can you believe it if I say that I did not be a part of it earlier as there were barely any trees around for me to click pictures? Of course one might argue that I could have taken pictures when I travel or visit other areas where there are plenty of tress. But, that would feel contrived. For me, pictures are about an impulse. That instant of seeing something differently and assuming a meaning of your own. That's the beauty of a picture, isn't it?

I now live in an area where there are plenty of trees! Each one tells a story of its own and I think this is the right time for me to start this one. This tree stands right outside my apartment community. What you don't see in the picture is the garbage littered right at her feet. Still, she doesn't bother much about what's around her and stands out tall on her own.

Bright green against the grey rain bearing clouds. That's why I chose to call her Aurora.


Thursday Tree Love is a photo feature on the fabulous Parul's blog hosted on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month. The next edition will be live on July 25, 2019. If you would like to play along, post a picture of a tree on your blog and link it back to her post.


  1. Glad that you moved to a locality with trees. It's sad to know that the garden city of India would have areas without trees.

  2. Nice pic and a beautiful tree. Nature always has a story to tell.

  3. This is beautiful, Soumya! I'm so glad to know from now on you will be posting tree pictures. Bangalore abounds in places which have plenty of trees in spite of the rapid concretisation happening everywhere! So looking forward to your tree pictures/stories in the coming weeks.

  4. An apt choice for this lovely tree! So glad to see trees from your part of the world Soumya!

  5. The name Aurora is so beautiful! And, perfect for the tree that stands undaunted by the mess man leaves at her feet! :)
