Kabootar at the Taj Hotel Mumbai

A few pics from Mumbai, which go with this previous post

At the Gateway of India (GOI), I was hoping to capture the 'swoosh' of kabootar (pigeons) flying away. So I positioned myself, and asked M to dash into the feeding flock and scare them away. Easier said than done! She traipses towards the pigeons, murmuring “kabootar ja ja ja, kabootar ja ja ja.” I think more pigeons were drawn in, than flew away. After multiple futile instructions to “dash in,” I settled on this pic to capture the ambience at the GOI that morning.

The older Taj Hotel. Still the most charming Hotel in Mumbai!

The rising sun gave the Taj a nice golden glow!
