Red, Blue & White...

Let me get over my 'Nilgiri Hills' hangover once and for all (for a while) with this post on 'Fernhill Palace'.* The name that brings to mind the colours Red, Blue & White.
* Chilly mountain breeze.
* Sunlight making my eyes squint.
* Mallika's excitement, my excitement.
* Forms, patterns, shadows.
* Shadows, patterns & forms.
* Ornate 'bulbless' lamp posts.
* Never seen blue like this before.
* A former hunting lodge of the Maharaja of Mysore but now a Welcome Group Hotel.

I love the picture of Mallika making a heart out of her hands . Although I'm sad to say , at only 5 ft my hands aren't much bigger than hers ! And you make me want to go to the Nilgiris.

Hi Archana,

The fourth photo from the top is GORGEOUS. I love the contrast. When I was a kid, I used to point out the blue sky to my friend almost every day! This photo reminded me of my childhood....
