Entry Description

The Salk institute in San Diego has some mind blowing architecture. The institute is housed in a complex designed by the firm of Louis Kahn. Michael Duff of the Kahn firm was the supervising architect and a major design influence on the structure that consists of two symmetric buildings with a stream of water flowing in the middle of a courtyard that separates the two.The institute is closed on weekends, but I didn't know that. The security guard was kind enough to let me take a shot during sunset. In the end, this is the shot I got. The place has a very ethereal feel to it.

About Photographer

Born and raised in Chennai, India, I spent a large part of my life in the subcontinent before moving to the United States to pursue a Masters Degree in Electrical Engineering. After completing my masters at the University of Michigan, I moved to San Diego in 2011. I've had a passion for photography that has been growing over the past few years. I am self taught, learning from the works of greats like Ansel Adams, Steve McCurry and other inspiring photographers. The beauty, grandeur and sheer magnificence of nature is what made me pick up a camera. It is this same feeling that drives me today to go out and capture moments in time that leave me in awe and wonder of the natural world. I love shooting nature, for I believe it is the toughest, yet most exciting muse to work with. I strive to find the perfect light, even if it lingers only for a few moments, and try to capture that one moment where man and nature are one.
