Greetings and welcome to my hand-spun blog+site. My photography journey has been incredible! It began with fun, then grew into passion, then I discovered profound love for it and there was no looking back. Please look around, the pictures here are the reflections of how I see the world. Enjoy exploring it.

Backyard bonanza

Last few weeks have been incredibly busy for me. All the photoshoots, editing, book designing aside, I have also been focusing a little bit on the home improvement side. Well, I wasn’t really doing much, other than thinking and stressing about what might be going wrong next! Thankfully everything has been going pretty well (fingers crossed) and I didn’t have too much to worry about.

If you didn’t know already, we purchased our first home last year(yiiipyyyy!!!). It’s a great home, but a home without a backyard. (So much for buying a brand new house!).

Last year we spent all our time on painting, buying furnitures, decorating rooms and filling up the house with unneccessary junk! This year we decided to just go for the backyard to get it all done. We figured that we could wait forever, or we could just work on it now and enjoy while we can.

Two months ago we finally pulled the trigger and hired a landscape designer(H&M design – website n/a) to plan our dream backyard. He did a brilliant job in designing a backyard that we envisioned. I’m a perfectionist and very particular about certain things, I was very impressed that he was able to nail the design to my taste. For the past two weeks we have had landscapers working really hard on our back (and front) yard. The temperature was really high during the first week of work, but it has cooled down a lot since then. I am just happy that we will be able to go out this summer and enjoy the outdoors.

Here is a picture from a few days ago, when the flagstones were being delivered. It was a quick iPhone snap on our way to work.
