My world in mid-July

2006: Kashmiri chili

A response to a challenge by a Lens Artist needed some thought. A response needed me to show you my world. I decided to select a picture from each year, as close to mid-July as I can get. Usually the monsoon is at its heaviest in mid-July, which lets me show a season I love. I stayed home some years. In others I traveled. I see that this is a fair picture of what I spend my time on. The series spans the period from 2006, which is represented by the featured photo, to the hard lockdown of 2020.

As always, click on any photo to get to the gallery.

I travel on work. When that gets too tiring then I relax by travelling for holidays. The holidays are pretty hectic, so I need to unwind by getting back home. But that means work.


  1. what a terrific idea I.J.! A great way to share your world, and also a wonderful way to show what the monsoon season looks like for those of us who have not experienced it. I must admit I thought it would be terribly dreary – WRONG! I can see how you could grow to love it, and of course that nature would thrive during such a time. Beautiful illustrations of something many of us will never know first-hand.

  2. I have never been through a monsoon – thank you for the guiding. I am not sure I would love it…I think you have to be born into it. Like the sea, I was not born close to the sea and don’t feel that instant love for it as many others do who were brought up there. Your images speak to me though…love especially the children playing, and the colour green.
