At the Gemini Flyover, Chennai...

Posted by
Sunder (Chennai, India) on 8 September 2010 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

Gemini Flyover , inaugurated on 1 July 1973, was the main landmark in Chennai ( then known as Madras)...

Although Chennai has developed at a very fast pace ...with many more tall glass and steel buildings and architectural marvels being a common sight now, Gemini Flyover still remains the most popular landmark....

During my research for this write-up on Gemini Flyover , I came across this interesting blog on Gemini (Anna) Flyover...

CElliottUK from Reading, United Kingdom

Dimitrios, Welcome AM3 from ATHENS, Greece

impressive statue, an idea is to crop the lower part with the grass, it will make your frame stronger, greetings from Greece

I agree with CElliottUK...adding the “story” helps me understand the picture and the context better. I do want to comment on the clarity of this night-time shot...the colors are good...the shadows “work”...It’s a very nice picture!
