On December 13, India lost one of her preeminent photojournalists – T. S. Satyan. You may recall that I had the honor of meeting him, his wife and son over a very yummy lunch at their modest home in Mysore. I treasure his books, Alive and Clicking and In Love with Life (not available on Amazon), both lovingly autographed for me. I will miss his emails, his wit and his curiosity for the world around him. The one image I would have liked to buy from him is this one you see to the top left – so full of life, right? Love it!
And here is a portrait of T. S. Satyan:

Here are two images I posted to my wedding photography blog:
