Family Photo
We had started a family ritual in 2013.

Every year, in December, we click a family photograph & make a new year card with this photograph to wish our close family & friends a happy new year.

This is the first time we didn’t make a card because COVID played a spoilsport. Another BIG change this year is that Tobo is not in the photograph. Tobo was our first kid. He was a Dachshund & a very moody one at that. The most challenging task was to make him pose for the camera. He was the boss at home & he listened only to himself. We used to bribe him with a toy for this annual photograph and if that didn’t work, we would have to arrange ourselves around him to pose for the picture. If that too did not work, then the last resort would be to Photoshop him into a picture although we had to do this only once!

He died in April 2020 at the age of 13 due to renal failure… We miss him every day!

We had started this yearly tradition of clicking a family photograph to exchange it with two of my Japanese friends, Makoto & Miki so that together, all these photographs will allow us to see how our three families have evolved with time…

You too can start creating annual family photographs… trust me, it is fun and you will create great memories! After a few years, you will have a series of photographs to see how you & your family have grown and changed over time.

Join me if you want to exchange a family New Year card with our family… I would love to see your family and move this tradition along!

Two years ago, I started cycling with an idea for a photographic project in my mind. Before I started the project, I wanted to know their world intimately. So in the span of one year, I completed double SR.

SR or Super Randonneur is a title earned by any cyclist who completes a series of brevets (200KM in 13.5Hrs, 300KM in 20Hrs, 400KM in 27Hrs & 600KM in 40Hrs) all in the same year. I realised that Brevets or BRM are an addiction. 40 Hrs on a cycle not only teaches you many life lessons, it adds unforgettable memories in your life & many interesting stories to share… Here is an old post about the first 5 months I spent cycling: bit.ly/sr-usp

Now, two years since the time I cycled manically, I have finally started my photographic project, the same one for which I cycled day & night, every day including on weekends, lost almost 13 KGs and covered almost 23000KMs in a span of one year.

Happy to meet a few cyclists again with who I rode on many BRMs and spent many days & nights on the road with. Waiting to make many new friends, listen to their stories & tell those to the world through my photographic project… Feeling excited again to work on something new…
