About me - Vandana Raman
I am from India, born in New Delhi,and living in the US for over 17years now. I am a physician, a hematologist-medical oncologist and an amateur photographer. I moved to San Francisco Bay Area in August 2012. I love to fight cancer with a passion; I love to use the word 'cure', and though I have more opportunities today than ever before, it is not as much as I would like. There always has to be more. In some of these moments which may be a little depressing, it is Photography that comes to my rescue. It rejuvenates me, shows me a better world, makes me happier, a better oncologist and a better person.

I love to travel , read, photo, live ...,more pics of travel

My favorites in reading are Jorge Luis Borges, John Berger, Jonathan Lethem, Ian MacEwan, Haruki Murakami..graphic novelists or 'comic' writers - Daniel Clowes, Chris Ware, Craig Thompson, Art Speigelman...Some of my books

I am currently reading 'The emperor of Maladies' By Siddharth Mukherjee. I usually read on a kindle. 

My favorite subject to photograph these day is my child. 
My Shooting equipment was primarily a Nikon D4 until recently. I lost my favorite D4 camera in the SFO airport while on a vacation to the Canadian Rockies in June 2016. Now I shoot with a used D800E I had to buy in Calgary ! I am trying to save up to buy a used D4 or D5 someday. I just hope somebody is using my lost D4 and it's not lying unused in some shady corner, it loves to take lots of pictures.  other Nikon stuff

I have been a 'Kiva Lender' since April 2009.

everything I do helps me fly a little
