Indian Wedding

Unlike a wedding ring , Indian Hindu brides wear a necklace of black beads strung in gold with little gold cups . This one also has beads of coral and pearls which are symbols of fertility and prosperity and good health . Here the necklace is being sanctified and blessed before the groom gets the bride to wear it .

Rice , betel nuts and fragrant jasmine flowers are used in the prayers.

Skies un Dubai

Evening Skies.

It is a series of pics I took while I watched the skies change from blue to pink to purple .
Absolutely breathtaking ! I hope you enjoy them too .
In the last one, do take a look at the "Burj Dubai" ,which is to become the tallest building in the world when completed.

For Skywatch Friday .
