Qutb Sunday!

Dec the 13th, 2009 : It starts today!

Whats “It“?

A purposeless mission taken up by an eccentric(slightly πŸ˜‰ ) soul : To visit the Qutb Complex every other Sunday and record history-and-nature visually!

Warning : This eccentric soul (ES from here) is a psycho obsessed with the Qutb and what she calls her “photography skills”. Net result : Toooooooooooooooo many pictures of the Qutb Complex from umpteen angles to be presented on this blog over the next couple of years.

Disclaimer : The ES is not responsible for any trauma resulting from seeing pictures of the same damn place again and again and again.. and again!

Note : The photos presented in this section are by no means a complete set of beautiful(??) pictures that can be taken of the structures at the QC. This is JUST the tip of the ice-berg!

To the post now, after all those points to be noted..

This seems to be a popular angle to take in the minar’s beauty. . Lots of people love it. . So does our ES πŸ™‚

Brick is beautiful!

The ES is EXTREMELY jealous of the little birdie.. The brat has easy access to such a nice little spot to enjoy the panaroma from! 😐

Black-and-White does have its charm

Now an unusual angle. . Which for once doesnt lead all eyes to just the Qutb! phew!

Yes Yes. . Thats the ES!

The view from the Alai Darwaza. . Whoa! The ASI definitely does a good job at maintaining this place.

Alai Darwaza

What can be better than having a doorway like that one to flaunt and a window like this one to relax on?

Quwwat al-Islam Mosque

With some history done, move on to see nature merging with history..

Now THAT is what is called contrast!!

Mr. Squirrel too has a vantage point. .Not fair! 😦

So the ES does have company to enjoy the early morning sun with πŸ˜‰

A closer shot of ES‘s little friend πŸ™‚


The ES’s little trip does seem to be fun though almost pointless. The “almost” is there for a reason. A super-hungry ES tasted the Andhra-Upma-Pesarattu at Govardhan (after waiting a good half hour for the folks’ kitchen to warm up to the first, really-early customer on this lazy sunday πŸ˜€ ). Just perfect to end the morning with. Actually, good enough for “Sunday Early Morning – bicycle – Qutb – photography – Pesarattu – Lab – Blog” to become a routine πŸ˜‰

  2. You like more like E.T. with the headphones (not ES). Good pics, btw. How about some sunset-time pics of the minar? How about a post on how the minar looks at diff times of the day?

    Yes.. when the ES gets more E. . enuf to brave delhi traffic on cycle @ other times of d day, the qutb’s other-times-of-the-day avtar’s wd be recorded.

    @bhavia :
    “ES” IS indefinite dear.. What makes you think it can be definite????? I am appalled by ur inefficiency in understanding me in all these years! 😦 😦

    Squirrel : He is already spoilt. .Kept running around and make me chase him so badly! Thinks too much of himself πŸ˜›
