This picture was shot in the beautiful and serene Lodhi Garden in Delhi last May before a storm.
The Lodhis were a pashtun Muslim dynasty which ruled much of Northern India during the 16th century.

The lotusses in this pond were reminding me the Water Lilies (or Nympheas) by French Impressionist Claude Monet (1840-1926).
This is a series of approximately 250 oil paintings which depict Monet’s flower garden at Giverny and were the main focus of the artist’s artistic production during the last thirty years of his life.
During the last years Monet suffered from cataracts.
In 1923, Monet had a lens removed from his right eye, correcting this but also allowing him to see ultraviolet light (which the lens usually blocks), and he began painting the water lilies in a more blue shade.

I found funny to work on this series of images as a kind of tribute to this artist and it is a new subject for me which allows me to play with colors.
Besides I enjoy making links into that Indo-Western topic that I usualy show in my photostream even if here it’s only coming from my imagination.

Although the title is an allusion to another impressionist painting “Bonjour Monsieur Courbet”.
