A Hug…



           Hugging is the ideal gift.

               Great for any occasion, fun to give and receive,

                    shows you care, comes with its own wrapping and,

                    of course, is fully returnable. Hugging is practically perfect.

                       No batteries to wear out, inflation-proof, nonfattening,

                        no monthly payments, theft-proof and nontaxable.”

                       “Hugs are a means of transferring energy to

                         another person who is dear to you.

                    This will replenish depleted energy

                         at any time particularly when a dear person is sick.”

                          “Hugs are to pull two

                               people closer together

                          but why is it that you can never see the other

                             person’s expression when it happens?”

                                                                     be is inside of your


                                                                         hugs where it’s warm and loving.”

                                  people you care most about,
                          it makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside!”

  7. Reblogged this on Treasured Trifles and Trifled Treasures and commented:
    The tenderness, the affection, the care, the safety, the trust that comes with a hug, one can find all of it here. Beautifully captured.
    I am not sure if these pictures are in chronological order, I would like to assume they are. From being scared (in the 2nd picture) to looking right into the camera (in the last picture). Looks like a hug was all the little one needed to cross that mountain of doubt between fear and confidence.

    • Thank you Krithya..:-)..yes they are in chronological order…the little one and the mother became comfortable after some time..:-)
      take care

      • And is that you in the eyes of the little one in that last pic? Aren’t they nice, the pictures where photographers accidentally end up becoming a part of the picture they click 🙂
        Take care

        April 1, 2014 at 11:33 pm

      • So very true Krithya…and thanks ..I didn’t notice that…:-)

  8. Wow, amazing close captures Sriram! What lens were you using? Looks like the wee one is curious about what you’re doing!

    April 1, 2014 at 3:12 am

    • Tank you Tina…I was pretty close to them..but had a 80-400 nikkor lens…fitted to my camera..
      and yes the little one was really shy and curious. I got these shots because the mother felt comfortable…with me sitting close to her on the ground…:-)
      take care

  16. that was an ideal post of which I loved every picture/stanza more. Maybe the first time ever that’s happened. to say: Well done–is so understated–but so is this, for it speaks volumes. All unknown authors…I noticed…hmmm…
