Remembrance of Giverny

Remembrance of Giverny


I was walking at the Lodhi Gardens in Delhi and I took this picture a few minutes before the big storm which has been refreshing the city all night long.

Lodhi Gardens is a park in Delhi, India. 
It contains architectural works of the Lodhis, a pashtun Muslim dynasty which ruled much of Northern India during the 16th century. 
The gardens are situated between Khan Market and Safdarjung’s Tomb on Lodhi Road.
Over there there is a pond with lotus which reminded me the Nympheas by Claude Monet.
Water Lilies (or Nympheas) is a series of approximately 250 oil paintings by French Impressionist Claude Monet (1840-1926). 
The paintings depict Monet’s flower garden at Giverny and were the main focus of Monet’s artistic production during the last thirty years of his life.

    Thank you Nigel, I love those paintings which have been inpiring most of my work in many ways since I was a child.
    As I was watching those lotus flowers in India I felt that it could be funny to do a post procession on my pictures in order to make a kind of tribute to the Master of impressionism.
