A couple, an arch and the Indian ocean

A couple framed under the arch of Karl Schmidt Memorial, at Elliot’s Beach, popularly known as Besant Nagar Beach in Chennai. In Dec 2009, I visited Chennai to meet some friends and we went for a stroll at the Besant Nagar Beach. It was a cool, cloudy, winter evening….a rarity in Chennai. It reminded me of the start of monsoons in Mumbai…a place which will always be close to my heart. The couple under the arch also reminded me of the countless couples one could see on most days, but especially on such beautiful, cloudy evening, at various sea-facing places in Mumbai.

At the time, I owned a simple (by today’s standards!) digital camera, a Sony-DSC W50 with 3 x optical zoom and 6 MP. This photo is actually a crop from the original one. In a future post, I would probably discuss basic editing and processing effects one could use to make even simple images look more interesting.

Is it love?
Half bounded, half limitless?

Beautiful ocean on one side, Mcway Waterfall on the other

Mcway Waterfall is also referred to as “tidefall”, since it empties directly into the ocean.

..and a flock of birds in the middle…stopping by for a cool summer drink..
