Mundane Monday Challenge #22

Hello!
Welcome to MMC – a challenge created to find beauty in almost anything, capture it and upload the photograph. 
Thanks a lot Mr PhoTrablogger for this challenge – here goes my entry for the week:

The wind was blowing hard and the sky was laden with clouds itching to break down into rain drops. The trees swayed back and forth, with their leaves bowed down by the immense force of nature. That day, I could actually see the wind gushing through, in addition to feeling its invigorating and chilly brush against my cheeks. It was only a matter of minutes that the transparent pearls of joy would sneak down from nature’s bounty to refresh the soul of earth and the creatures dwelling on it.
Then I saw these two parrots sitting on the cables, waiting in anticipation. While their counterparts were busy seeking shelter, they Gave me another glimpse of beauty just before the real magic was about to be recreated.

    I’m glad to see you wrote it “Mr” and not “Mr.”

      You are surely a teacher.. Noticing tiny things like that. That what they do, in the course of making their pupils perfect.
      But was there something more than a flaw( as I deem it to be)? Something I missed?

        Haha.. It’s just that I’m a fond of new learning languages, and English is one of them and all time favourite. 🙂
        No, your whole content is perfect. 👌

          Yes,Mister’s abbreviated form is Mr. (US) or Mr (US & UK) – both used interchangeably. See, I’m gaining perfection 😉
          Also , knowing the British English which has been passed on to India
          I think I can understand why I should use ‘Mr’ 😛

            Haha.. Yes you are 😉
            And a simple logic behind such abbreviations are like this, if last letter of the word is taken for abbreviation then there’s no need to put dot. For instance:
            Mister=Mr
            Doctor=Dr
            Since, both the words are ending with same letter which is used in abbreviation hence, no need of dot 😉

              Thanks a lot for explaining the logic behind it. I’m fond of English language too and such tidbits always excite me.
              Good day!

    I came in here just to say what a lovely shot of the parrots and I also learned a bit of English.. 😉 Thanks to Sumit.. 🙂

    Still, I find it funny for some reason, that it is Mr Photrablogger.. 😉

    Anyway, good to see the use of Mr, which is becoming a rarity unless in formal occasions.. 🙂

      Yes, thanks to Sumit 🙂
      And yes, you can say Mr was used as mark of respect for the great photographer. Though, I have seen Jithin using this name for himself too 😉
      Also, I’m glad you liked the shot. Parrots are indeed beautiful birds. Though it’s occasional to spot them here. It mostly the pigeons and crows :p
      Thanks a lot !

        Hey wordpress is getting on our way to connect.. 😛 I am not getting notifications from your blog dear..

        Yup, he does use that name.. And he does deserve the respect.. No doubt in it.. Yet, it feels bit weird using a title for him.. 😛 Got too used to friendly terms I guess.. 😉

        Yes, though I could hear parrots around here rarely, it is even rare to spot one..

          WordPress has got habitual in doing this once in a while.. There’s some glitch in the app.. I guess I should report this.
          And thanks a lot for coming over and responding 🙂

          Also, that mark of respect was used in a post.. that’s the optimal place for formalities. Hehe…we won’t use that in comments though 😉

    Oh no this one seems to be one tougher. 😦
    Btw amazing click. Pure wisdom, as you’d like to hear it from me. Hah.
    The clouds seem to revolve around the worlds of these two parrots. Great job.
    But, I’d like to give this one a try,
    The Saiz Quote,
    “In the end, I could find no shelter to my soul but, the strings.
    The sky allows me not to escape it. The cage allows me not to escape it.
    People are selfish, but they escape it.” 🙂

      Ha-ha! I won’t like to hear it unless its actually applicable to the situation. Let’s drop this one from the pet list 😉
      But Thanks a lot for the appreciating the click and for the Saiz quote. I see, You have pondered hard on it. I saw it as a wait for the rain shower, but you have captured the dark side of it.
      Thanks a lot again.

    I have always been fascinated by the electric posts and the chaotic lines crisscrossing this way and that way. Glad you took a picture of it with two interesting birds and with an interesting backdrop and with an interesting thought to add the charm to it 😉

      So with many things interesting, I’m sure you liked the picture 🙂
      Thank you 🙂
      The chaotic lines and electric posts are mundane but can be aesthetic too if clicked appropriately.I see how fascinated you are with mundane and that reflects in your photography too 🙂

    Parrots are always a delight! We are so used to watching Black crows that we take a second look at any other bird that flutters past. 🙂

      Couldn’t agree more. Pigeons come second in the list. Except that white pigeon I saw a few days ago. It was majestic. 🙂
      Thanks a lot for stopping by Rajini. Its always a pleasure talking to you 🙂
