Chennai winter

All I have ever heard is that Chennai has three climates, hot, hotter and hottest! But I think thats not always true. My morning jogs have shown me a different side to Chennai, a wintery foggy paradise that lasts until the first rays of the sun mature. I enjoy winters in Chennai!

The era that went by
Mahabalipuram
iPhone X-1/120Sec-f/1.8-ISO40-4mm-30Sep2018-06:42:18

A symbol of prestige and known for its hardiness, the Ambassador car was a gentle giant on the roads in its hey days. But neither time nor tide waits for anyone. Faster and sleeker cars took their place on the roads and the Ambassador gently got shoved to the sides of roadside. Neglected yet standing proud, it still serves a purpose. That of providing shade to a green overgrowth and of resting sports cycles against it.

1️⃣It has been featured in double spread at smart Photography-November2018 issue as Photo of the Month.

Naughty Smile
Alpine Viva
iPhone 6plus-1/17Sec-f/2.2-ISO125-4mm-10Nov2015-15:22:00

Meet my 48 day old son, Ujan Atig Pal (UjanAtigPal.com) who does not know what to do with his two hands. So he plays with them by himself & makes new poses always. He had to stay in an ICU at a hospital as he was a premature baby born at 29 weeks. Doctors said that usually night shifts were boring as they did not have much work to do. However during the 37 nights that Atig stayed there, each night was memorable & not boring as they used to spend their time with him and see his new poses with his hands always. This time too he was posing in a new manner with two hands on his face and a naughty smile. I could not resist myself from taking this candid shot! By the way, he is a really tiny baby. You cannot probably guess how tiny he really is from this pic as I have digitally zoomed in to show his mischievous smile.
