#ThursdayTreeLove - 33

#ThursdayTreeLove – 33

This tree stands tall at the entrance of Mehrangarh fort in Jodhpur besides a structure that looks like something of importance in the yesteryear. There is no one to look after or narrate a story of what this could have been. Sad or happy – no memories of the past. However, look at those pigeons who have found a home on the top of the dome and the tree. Even when a lot is lost, there are still a few things one can be happy about.


Thursday Tree love is a photo feature on this blog and is hosted on 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month. The next edition will be live on February 22, 2018. If you would like to play along, post a picture of a tree on your blog and link it back to this post.

If you don’t see the pingback, please leave a link to your post in my comments section. I will link your posts on my blog in the next edition and spread some love. Let’s come together to appreciate the beautiful nature around us.

  1. The quote goes very well with the photo. I am interested in knowing what lies on the other side of that structure. In settings like this, I always wonder what stories do the tree has to tell about the history of the setting.

    So majestic looking. Trees are just as beautiful on black & white as in colour. More mysterious.

    This picture is beautiful, and it’s so YOU, Parul. Not a nature lover (or so I thought) but I love this series of posts.

    I’m not sure if you are aware of this fact Parul that most Chhatris in western Rajasthan are usually built in remembrance of a person. Nice capture. I’m also participating in TTL this week as mentioned earlier. It should be up tomorrow morning, Parul!

    • Parul Thakur says:

      I wasn’t aware and I am so glad you shared. That’s a good piece of information. Thank you! I see that you haven’t left a link but no worries – let me go get your post 🙂

  12. You’ve captured this so beautifully. There’s something arresting about its starkness. Linking up with you this week.

    What a quote, given the circumstances under which Anne Frank wrote it. I love when the past survives in some way. Nice black and white capture; it suited the topic. My contribution: https://ramblinwitham.blogspot.com/2018/02/gold-and-hawk-thursdaytreelove.html

  15. Esha says:

    What a beautiful shot, Parul! I’ve never been to Mehrangarh but would love to, someday. I love the thought you expressed so beautifully—that even when all is lost, there are still somethings that one can be happy about! I get that feeling from a lot of things around me and I can relate to that strain of thought. Joining in again this week with my #treelove post:

    This is one lovely tree..the monochrome adds depth to the image..almost a vintage feel.. great shot Parul

  17. Archana says:

    A wonderful image. The two together evoke a feeling a nostalgia of time gone by. The black and white image adds to this feeling… Great shot. By the way.. I had posted on #ThursdayTreeLove 32 as well.. Do add to your list if possible ! 🙂

    Life without colour has a stark beauty. The tree looked like a mogul motif alongside an old structure .
