Flowers, a thing of nature and when in bloom plays a part in the big circle of life that Simba is also found in.

Flowers, while practical in its original and rightful place serves up to be very useful. 

Flowers, when plucked, removed and unplugged from the circle forcibly and violently, loses every bit of its original purpose. 

They then redefine their purpose of existence. 

The purpose of not being purposefully practical. 

Now, in a vase, it adorns the site it resides, the artificial space it stands. 
An organic reminder to an otherwise very artificial and concrete-like urban environment. 

The romantic in me will put them in a bouquet. 

The purpose of not not being purposeful.
On top of costing a few more cents than the edibles; chocolates and cookies.
Holding less sense than an artfully designed iPad or iDevice.

Flowers, redefining the purpose in today's all-purposeful life. 

Flowers, because the beloved deserves.

Beauty, second to none.

it pays the bills, man.

These two lads spontaneously posed for me, smiling brightly into the camera and providing such a good shot. The countenance and expression is priceless.  Is it that only in America that I find the boldness to take such shots? Or such subjects are hard to find in the more reserved culture like ours.

The gardener in his overalls is one of my favorite shots in US. Upon inquiry, he spoke about how this job 'pays the bills, man'. While the passion is to deejay, he willingly (or is compelled economically) took up this gardening job to make that dough to pursue his passion during his leisurely hours.

As far as I know, this is pretty exclusive; to be able to do what you love and make it a living outta it. Well inculcated with pragmatism, we are bred from young to engage in something 'useful' and profitable. Pursue your passion in dance/football/painting as a career is almost not feasible - but of course I am speaking generally. 

Not many of us are as lucky as those select few: those who are not just talented enough to be absolutely brilliant in these aspects, but also fortunate enough to be given opportunities to shine in these situations.

A Flurry of Events

After a brief hiatus, here we are again. 

Once more, with fleeting human interactions, compelling (single)subject matter,
