Sunrise with the birds

The body must be getting travel wary as I awoke later at 6.45am / 06:45, much later than I had been waking and had to force myself to get out of bed in order to be out and see the sunrise. Last night googled when sunrise was (7.15am) as in my mind I wanted to get the Gateway of India in the picture somehow.

On last night’s walkabout I saw chairs and staging being put up in front of the Gateway of India. Now know the reason. A sunrise concert.

So hung around and eventually saw the sun rise with the sightseeing boats at anchor providing the foreground subject matter. The higher the sun rose, the more orange it became.

I had read about the Sassoon Dock and googled last night its whereabouts. Google maps said just 22 minutes if walked to get there.

Along the sea wall passing:

  • pigeons and seagulls being fed

Through Colaba early morning vegetable and fruit market. What a contrast one block makes. From the up market expensive hotels to this area where the locals live, shop and work. It had the same atmosphere as the other local markets I have been through.
