Music Bliss

Music Bliss

Caught a bit of Ankur’s pre-New Years’ Eve music last night at the Frequency.  Bumped to the groove for a bit and caught a few photos of Spin Cycle.  I like this one – it captures the beat of the music that was playing last night....

the storm aftermath….

the storm aftermath….

Saw this poor car on my draggingly slow commute into the office this morning. Halfway buried in the thick frozen snow mess, I couldn’t even tell what kind of car it was. Just glad it wasn’t mine.  ...

Downtown Madison at Lunch

Downtown Madison at Lunch

Reason 430 why I love Madison. A beautiful and warm sunny day walking around the Capitol square at lunch. Looks like some renovation work is taking place on the Miss Forward sculpture on top. You can kind of see the workers walking along the top of the dome. Couldn’t pay me enough to do that. ...

Madison, home sweet home

Madison, home sweet home

Flying into Madison the other day, the sky was just beautiful and clear. I shot these photos from my seat in the plane. Not bad considing I used my iphone shooting through the plane windows.Love this photo as it is my childhood neighborhood. There’s my elementary school (kind of center left) and my parents home is just a smidge over. Amazing what a different perspective will give...

a piece of Madison history

a piece of Madison history

Anyone who grew up in Madison, knows this house and I know you want the color version, but too bad. I’m paying homage to 154 years of its existence. It’s called the Leicht House and is on Gorham Street by James Madison park.

While the style of the house is quite Gothic Victorian, I could definitely make it my own. I loved the three separate staircases, the 13ft ceilings, the fireplaces in every room and the beautiful...

Summer in Madison let the music begin

Summer in Madison let the music begin

Yesterday, Saturday, Jun 13th, was the official kick-off the the Madison summer music scene with the Marquette Lakefront Festival. Headed down around 5pm to catch the last show of the day, Rupa and April Fishes from San Fran. – Love the sound – European gypsy, Mediterranean and Bollywood with all songs beautifully sung in french. The we stopped at Ankur and Ashwini’s to visit with his wonderfully fun parents who were visiting from India. We then departed en masse for some great music on the Union Terrace belted out by the Lee Boys out of Florida. I loved their rift of Jimi Hendrick’s Purple Haze, they hammered out over Lake Mendota. Wow, gotta love the steel guitar. Music on the terrace must end by 11pm so the night was still young! We then...
