The Installation

There are very few public installations in Mumbai. Most of the older ones, such as the painted cows, lions and elephants outside the Churchgate stations are in a pathetic state. Barring the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival, one barely gets to see much public art installations. So, it’s a pleasure to see an installation being given a place of pride inside a public park.

Present inside the Cross Maidan just off the Churchgate railway station, on the left hand side of the road leading to Flora Fountain, this installation just arrests your attention.

Post sundown, it is quite well lit with the LEDs which transition from red to blue to violet.

I wonder how the installation will interact during the daytime with the sunlight. Should be interesting to find out for a future post. Hopefully will get more details about the installation as well:)

Street library

Whenever i pass by the street opposite Flora Fountain, i walk really slowly, taking my time looking at all the books on display. I try my best not to go to any shop, as i then end up buying a couple of books atleast, causing the other books, magazines at home to remain unread. It’s an addiction, this hoarding of books and magazines, and i am pretty sure my books hoarding is borderline pathological. Can’t help it. Who wouldn’t want a library like this?

L – Shaped!

The stretch from CST upto Flora Fountain is great if one is fond of Architechture Photography. As most of the buildings face east, one gets enough light falling on each buildings to go about shooting in the mornings. After i got my S5 IS, i took it out for a test ride one fine weekday. One comes across many such arched pathways, with artistic pillars supporting them. In the above photograph my main idea was to capture the light and shadows of those pillars. It formed a right angle, well almost.
