WP-Weekly Photo Challenge: Graceful

“Every natural action is graceful.”

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

This week the theme of the WP- Weekly Photo Challenge is Graceful. Gracefulness is a tricky quality — it manifests itself as an effortless, subtle harmony between a subject and its environment.  A few days ago, I visited a local amusement park of the city. The park is situated on the bank of a lake. Family and couples come there to spend some quality times. I went there just before the sunset and found an amazing harmony between the people, nature and the atmosphere. So, I couldn’t check myself to capture that graceful scenic view at my frame.

Once I found an elegant smile on the face of a nomad lady in a small stall of the street. The lady was selling some cheap and artificial gemstones. The lady belongs to the nomad community, locally called as “Banjara”. They are wandering at various places of India for food and home. They came in our city to sell some handmade stuff for the purpose of a religious festival.  They struggle a lot to save their lives by roaming about here and there for the seek of some food. But, the struggle of that lady cannot bring any impression on her gracefulness as it is natural.

It feels amazing to see the blooming of a flower. This is the grace of the blooming lotus. I found this lotus bud which is about to bloom in my garden.
