A virtual peek into Mumbai – a slide show

June 18, 2008

Ever visited Mumbai? Well even if you have, these photographs might be interesting. Some of them I have used before on this blog, but most are new. Remember, I am just an amateur photographer so don’t expect too much!

I’ve chosen to showcase these pictures in a slide-show for two reasons – One is that they are too many and the other is that I don’t need to watermark them if they are presented this way. Unless someone takes a screen shot they can’t copy the picture, and well, a screen shot won’t give them a good quality picture. In any case, this time I have reduced each picture to about 50 kb so even if they copy they will get a poor result!

I may not post for the rest of the week…because I’m coming down with a virus. The monsoons and viruses go together and I think I have a two in one.

Here is the slide-show. If it stops and you want to see it again, just click on the “x” at the top right hand corner.

    I’ve never been to Mumbai and really, really , really want to!!
    Thanks for the pics, Nita.

    Get well sooooooon! The viral infection is nature’s way of telling you you need a break, so rest nicely.:)

    Warm hugs to keep you company๐Ÿ™‚

    I have never been to Mumbai either so this slideshow helps me take a look at the everyday life of Mumbaikars. I agree that a few days rest would do you a world of good.

    Get well soon, Nita๐Ÿ™‚

    Hey take care of yourself… and am not giving you much “salaah” as Nikhil has already done that for every one๐Ÿ™‚

    i go to mumbai every now and then, for personal as well as professional reasons… i like mimbai as long as i am travelling in taxis, hate the cramped local trains, the sweat and the smell…. *am turning up the nose*๐Ÿ™‚

    but i love going through the galaries and other stuff for which this comment sction is too small๐Ÿ™‚ can go on for ever

    like beach too! and chat and .. well, see can’t stop!๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m sorry for not replying earlier, and Sakhi, it’s not that I am too ill. But just that a low fever, and a headache can make sitting in front of the pc a big pain!
