Photodashph | Lotus in Bloom

4 months ago


One of the main reasons and the highlight of my morning walks in a particular park in the Metro are the lotus flowers. Whenever we take our walk in an early morning, I see to it that I get to visit the pond where these flowers can be seen in their shining glory. They are such a beauty to look at and to begin your day with.


My love for hyacinths and lotus flowers started when I was still residing in the province. There was this pond in an abandoned area I get to see during my trip to and from the school that are filled with hyacinth blooms. I thought back then that, it's funny how can something so beautiful bloom in an area that seems to be filled with despair? It was an abandoned area and nobody seemed to care on that place and yet, that place grew one of the most beautiful blooms.


Being able to see lotus (or hyacinths) in bloom gives me hope. It makes me realize that no matter how screwed up life can be, there can be this wonderful thing that blossoms out of it. Like peace in the midst of chaos. Like hope in the midst of despair.

its really beautiful in real life and upclose, amazing Lotus, one of my favorite flower, we have here somewhere in our place, but i cant take picture because it is in the deep creek, life risking if i go down.

"every photo has a story"


That's the sad part of seeing these flowers @dashand. Taking upclose photos of them are really hard. I'm just glad that on this pond, I can take as much photos of them as I can. Lotus flowers are too beautiful not to take upclose photos ❤
