  2. So blue it would almost look unreal if it weren't for the bell tower! I'm ready to see some of that color -- for real! Beautiful shot!

  9. hi magiceye - i am very intrigued by the movie which has made your city famous. i have decided that i will read the book first (Q&A), then wait to buy the DVD because i know that this is a film i will need to see at least twice.

    now i am thinking that very often you show us rooftops in your photograph - are these some of the mumbai slums???

  12. the peeking clock-tower steels the show fro the sky, at least for me.

    The white streak passing through the clear blue sky reminded me of the fighter jets that leave similar trails across the Delhi skies during the Republic Day practice.

  13. Awesome composition! And those faint trails running diagonally just add more interest. Love this. Happy Sky Watching!
