It was already around 2:00 PM when we finished with Jantar Mantar. The next stop would have been Red Fort which would have been near but a driver from that area told us that the roads there were packed because of Ram Lila celebrations.
Ranjana was in Delhi and also Vijay’s mother was in Delhi and I was supposed to meet them. I showed my friends a little bit of Delhi and then went to meet Ranjana but not before we had lunch in Connaught Place a.k.a Rajiv Chowk. The restaurant was almost empty when we walked in. After a heavy lunch, I was off to meet Ranjana and my friends were off to see the Qutub Minar
I have seen Qutub Minar twice and taken some good pictures. Qutub Minar with its imposing height offers opportunity to take good pictures. The ruins with almost no modern structure to ruin the shots, its a photographer’s paradise. Everytime I have gone there, I have managed a new unique shot.
I had given my camera to Mathew and he was in charge of taking the pictures there. But then again, each photographer has his own idea of a perfect picture. Although the copyright does say it belongs to F2f, these are not taken by me.
I have not taken photo from this angle. Liked this one
The shadows at the edges makes it unique
This one is not rare. There was a time when I was dying to get a squirrel shot. Back in Delhi, we saw squirrel at every place we went
The beautiful carving on the Qutub Minar
This one is rare, a parrot sitting on the parapeet.
Planes fly over the Qutub Minar all the time. Again a good one
This one of the pillars inside the building in front of Qutub Minar. Nice shot!
Another good one of the Pillars
Inside the tomb.
