Somewhere Saturday - Delhi, India

For Somewhere Saturday this week here's a trio of shots from my trip to India last spring. All these photos were taken at the seat of government in Delhi, the capital of India, and show where the main government offices and ministries are located. Just to the left of the photo is the Ministry of Defense and shortly after I clicked the shutter both of the uniformed men on the left came towards me and informed me that it was illegal to take photos of the Ministry of Defense. However, they were very nice about it and I was impressed with their politeness. The photo below was taken looking in the opposite direction, towards the India Gate. As you can see, Delhi was quite smoggy that day.

Great pictures of an exotic place! Although sorry to hear the guards told you not to take pics of the defense building, but at least they were nice about it.

Great shots which bring back some memories. Several times we came across this roads on our way to the embassies applaying for visas. We walked there and enjoyed that it wasn't crowded with people. A nice contrast.
