Jazz By The GatewayThis pic was taken at the Gateway of India, during a jazz show as part of the Mumbai Festival. Performing at the show were some of the
greatest living exponents of the art of jazz- Al Jarreau, George Duke, Ravi Coltrane and Earl Klugh along with members of The Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz.
I didn't go for the show, if you had to ask. (I'd probably have got better pics if I had, but I was too late to get the tickets.) This is a Hail Mary shot taken from outside.
For readers who do not understand photography jargon, Hail Mary shots are where the photograph is taken with the camera held above your head, like in a crowd, without looking through the viewfinder. The camera settings have to be adjusted beforehand, and the frame is just plain guessed.
In this case, I was outside a barracade containing the show. I couldn't see this frame - I had a sheet of asbestos between me and the Gateway. I only held my cam above that barracade and shot.
(Ok, I promise that's the last post about the Gateway, its waters, or of the Mumbai Festival.)
