My photo on contemporary art network

30 04 2009

I was pleasantly surprised when I was contacted recently about my photograph being selected by ARTslant Worldwide, contemporary art network web site :)


Following is the photograph that was selected; a picture of Fountain Place in downtown Dallas- this unique skyscraper was designed by I.M. Pei and Partners who also designed One Dallas Center, Energy Plaza, and the Dallas City Hall.

It was a 60 degree day in Dallas and I could not resist those beautiful clouds just dancing around the sky. I hired a cab for about 4 hours (yes to take snaps around downtown Dallas) and I spent about 20 minutes in the parking lot next to this beautiful building, to capture the reflections that would accentuate the unique angles of the building.

Reflections: Fountain Place, Dallas, Texas




Performance Profiling for WPF and Silverlight

3 04 2009

We have good performance profiling tools and guidance available for WPF and Silverlight; thought I’d share those links here.


For WPF there is the Visual Profiler tool.

For Silverlight there is the XPerf tool, which is part of the Windows Performance Toolkit. Also, take a look at this nice blog post on Silverlight performance tips here; XPerf & XPerfView tools are explained here.
