Kadari Kambala

The slush track comes down to a stand still, with no wind you can see the reflection in the water. The adrenalin is running high and with a crack of the whip the the silence and stillness brakes into chaos.

Kadari Kambala or also calls the slush Olympics in Mangalore, IN is a yearly traditional event that kicks if during the harvest season. Buffalo Bulls that are well taken care through out the year are now out to test to show their speed and agility.

I nearly got knocked off by these bill as I sat down staring through my camera taking pictures.

Cloud Gate

Cloud Gate, Chicago

Often referred as the bean, Cloud Gate is British artist Anish Kapoor’s first public outdoor work installed in the US. Using highly polished stainless steel, the bean reflects Chicago’s Skyline and the clouds. The arch of the “Gate” beneath the sculpture is an invitation to people to come and touch the mirror like surface and see your reflection.

Inspired by liquid mercury, the sculpture is among the largest of its kind in the world, measuring 66-feet long by 33-feet high.

Pittsburgh

I ended up in Pittsburgh at the wrong time over a weekend to only be greeted with deserted streets in downtown Pittsburgh and drove another 30 minutes to the closest Panera for breakfast, lunch and dinner for 2 days.

This view was all worth it!

They have the best views…

New York is one of the best places for photography, but to capture the skyline of New York, especially Manhattan; one must go across the Hudson River.

The stretch form New Port to Exchange Place in Jersey City you have breath taking views of Downtown Manhattan. Do not be in a hurry to get there and click pictures; but take your time and reach there just about 20 minutes before sunset and you won’t be disappointed.The sun setting just behind you casts a beautiful golden hue on the entire city. If you are lucky, go on an overcast day and if the rain clouds are clearing.

The city that never sleeps; turns on those tungsten and energy efficient LED’s once the sun goes down. Transitioning form the Golden hour to the Blue hour is also a surreal experience.

For a place to have the best views of Manhattan, do have some pretty views for themselves as well, Just look around.
