The Stolen Project 365:A Photo a Day for a Year #11

Hyderabadi Biryani served on a banana leaf at the dubiously named biryani place in Mysore 'RRR'.I wonder who they send to er.. collect the 'plates' from the trees.Or is there a small business somewhere that supplies banana leaves to eating joints around Mysore.

The city is quaint, with lovely weather ( no air conditioner required ),a fantastic zoo which is home to the only gorilla in south Asia, tapirs which I'd never seen before and rogue chimpanzees that grinned gleefully before aiming small stones at the visitors.(I don't blame them, I felt like throwing a few pesky kids into the gorilla enclosure myself).

The famous Mysore palace is absolutely beautiful.One of the erstwhile princely states of India, it was home to the royal family of Mysore till 1947.Unfortunately I don't have a single photograph because my phone decided to die on me.

The plane from Bangaluru to Mysore was the size of a bus, and the pilot announced that singing is not prohibited.

The Stolen Project 365 :A Photo a Day for a Year #8

Breakfast with F at Elma's Bakery and Tearoom.Hot press coffee and a waffle with cream and honey.I especially asked for flowery crockery.So pretty ! I love that this place has a lot of natural daylight.

Hideous new pink dental chair at the clinic.This colour, all women are supposed to like.Excuse me while I roll my eyes.

I must admit I did not click anything on the 16th.

The Stolen Project 365 - A Photo a Day for a Year #6

I've been meaning to photograph this languid Bougainvillea bush,draped over that pale yellow wall for a long time now.I pass it on my way to work.Apparently the hotter it is , the more flowers there are,and it is highly tolerant to pollution.Now this is a flower I like - no nonsense, resilient, and stylish while seeming to make no effort.It drapes nonchalantly over the wall,showing Summer the finger.

The Stolen Project 365: A Photo a Day for a Year #5

Random cat in the lawn at Y.M.C.A .It was picking at grass and posed most graciously when I came towards it to click.

In other news,I may be not be in Delhi this time next month *fingers crossed*.But more on that later.
