My name is Ayushi Srivastava, a current student in the UC Berkeley Summer Journalism program; I am incredibly intrigued by the art of photography and hope to use the skills I gain from this class in interdiscplinary ways (especially in my fields of study: biology and business). Photography is sprinkled in various aspects of my life, some of which I have portrayed below.
This picture, captured by me (Ayushi Srivastava) on 13 March, 2021, shows Tofu Srivastava, 2, of Union City Calif. and Arnold, 3, of Carmel Calif., enjoying the vast Carmel Beach space together. As personal caretaker of Tofu, I advocate for the health and wealth that dogs bring to a home. They are loyal, and kind in times of need, but playful and full of joy in times of happiness. Their adventurous spirits promote the longevity of life and proclivity of happiness, as my father would say, “day by day, walk by walk.” (Ayushi Srivastava Photography).
