the calm before the ….

Perhaps, the most photographed spot in Hyderabad. Whether you are a tourist or a resident. Whether the place is packed or empty. Whether the birds take off in all directions or stay put on the ground or eat out of the hands of the visitors. A peaceful morning or hectic dusk, in all probability you would return with some interesting images. Even if you happen to realise it much later.

Shot on an early morning visit, a rare quiet moment when the pigeons were gathering in great numbers, building a sense of anticipation before they eventually took off in a frenzy and circled around the monument.

Flight to freedom

A fitting finale, the flight to freedom shows the end to the dove’s struggle when trapped under a net set up by some hunters. Together they carry a small part of the net in their beaks and fly away.
