Friendship...

... is the only cement that will ever hold the world together.
~ Woodrow Wilson.



I would have been an ordinary person leading an ordinary life carrying on with my routine day-to-day activities but blogging has introduced me to a new world. Speaking thru the lens has enabled me to interact with so many friends from all over the world. When reading all the comments that you leave here I really feel very happy to know that there are indeed a lot of people in the world who think that my photos are worth looking at. So thank you friends for following me, for leaving comments and for just stopping by to view my clicks.

In India, we celebrate Friendship Day on the first Sunday of August. I think some countries celebrate it on a different day. Anyway since it is our Friendship Day today I would like to wish you all a Happy Friendship Day. Have a great day.
