Pictures of sunrise over I-90 (highway) in Chicago. I challenged myself to take pictures of a sunrise in the middle of the road.. while I didn’t technically take these pictures from the middle of the road .. I did take them from the roadside.

I ran across a video of Peter Hurley, as a guest post on Scott Kelby’s blog, in which he discusses the importance of positioning the jaw lines of your subjects when taking portraits. Sri stopped by to check on Virat yesterday along with his family and I thought I should try out this tip. The effect was amazing.
BEFORE (as I would normally take portraits)
Jhanvi and I visited India in April and were lucky to celebrate Ugadhi with our family back home. Ugadhi is the an important festival in South India and is essentially the celebration of the begenning of a new year (yep.. new year in April ). One of the specialities of Ugadhi in Andhra Pradesh is something called “Ugadhi Pachadi”. It is a mixture of 6 ingredients (Neem Flower, Jaggery, Red Pepper, Green Mango, Salt and Tamarind) which designate the different “tastes” of life (bitter, sweet, hot, salty, tangy etc).
I haven’t been able to celebrate Ugadhi with my family for more than 10 years. So it was a special occasion. And mom went all the way to make it even more memorable. Here are some pictures.

I have been snowed in for the first time (in the 10 years that I have been in Chicago) . I woke up early and took some pictures. Here is one showing my car (nearly drowned in snow ) with snow around it for some prospective
Here’s another showing how much snow we had to dig through on the footpaths to walk around
