Photographer's Note

Today's image of a familiar setting and has been captured and uploaded by many members, but I thought I would chance my arm at upload of my own version and variants. Taken on a late afternoon.

Hawa Mahal or 'Palace Of The Winds' in Jaipur was built in the 17th century as part of City Palace, it was an extension of the women’s chamber. Its purpose was to allow royal ladies to observe everyday life in the street below without being seen in public. It is a five storey high red sandstone structure complete with over 950 windows. The breeze or 'hawa' in Hindi circulates through these windows, giving the palace its name.

The scaffolding up one side somehow has spoiled the normal shot, but there's nothing much you and I can do about it!!

Setting: 16 mm, 1/30 sec, F5.6, ISO Raw 200, 1744 hrs
