Big holiday, mother bird and a peaceful day

Lines, colors, shapes in nature

It's a big holiday this weekend in Thailand. People go out and celebrate their favorite holiday in various places, leaving the city of Bangkok quiet and peaceful. There's no traffic jam at all and I could drive to my parents' home in only 15 minutes (it usually takes about 40-50 minutes to get there!)

The holiday includes the day of Family too. We don't do anything much though, just stay home and enjoy peaceful day together. Then, I took my mom for a shopping while my dad and my sister prefered to stay home as usual :)

Dad loves staying home, in the garden, to be precise. He wakes up early every morning, walks around tending trees and plants in the garden. Then he goes to work and comes back home to walk around the garden again until dusk :) I always feel that the garden, his garden, is the safest, most secure place in the world with him wearing his usual white t-shirt moving around among different shades of green. The weather seems to be always fine when he is there.

Today is just like everyday. Dad sat in the porch and told me to look at a bird's nest in a bush nearby. The mother bird was elsewhere, dad shook a branch and the little bird woke up open his beak waiting for a meal.

He's not getting it though :P I walked around taking photos and enjoying beautiful day. When I came back, the mother bird was already home.

She looked so calm and elegant sitting in the nest. I think she knew I was taking pictures of her but she seemed to ignore me completely.

How large and beautiful eyes she has! I never got a chance to look at a bird so closely. They always fly away before I press shutter. This one just posted naturally for me and I felt a bit excited :)

The holiday will end in two days. It's not really a holiday to me though. As a freelancer, everyday could be a holiday if you choose to. But we tend to work all through the year and not really in a festive mood as much as others would do.

It's nice to spend time quietly and beautifully with those you love though :)

  3. Lovely photos...also, what better way can there be to spend a holiday than in your garden with your family?

  4. My coder is trying to convince me to move to .
    net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type
    on several websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
    I have heard very good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
    Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
