“How about outdoor pictures?”, I texted Valli. “Something like ballet on the city streets except Bharatanatyam”. Valli spoke to Harini and said she was game to that challenge. It was a weekend in May and as the sun was breaking in, we braved the Seattle downtown to shoot outdoor pictures. Harini with all her costumes walked the 3rd avenue catching the eye of amused onlookers. With great attitude and perfect poses, she was a delight to work with that day.
