Monochrome Monday #5

I saw the two buildings right opposite the bus-stop at Juhu Beach. I haven't walked around here for a long time so I don't know if the two buildings are under construction, or under repair. Can you figure it out?
My little boy insisted that I take a photo of the concrete mixer truck in the photo, so I took this photo. I realised later that it was a good choice.

  3. Your son must have a good eye also. The refelctions in the one building add so much - there is a contrast betweeen activity and peace as well as in tones.

  6. I can't figure out if it's under construction or repair but I like the shot. There's so much going on in it.

  7. That's the second post I've seen from Juhu today. But I think the other was from a couple of weeks ago.

    Looks like the glassed in building is waiting for the others to catch up, or perhaps supervising the renovations/construction. I couldn't begin to guess whether the other two are new, or just undergoing a facelift, but it's a fascinating shot all the same.

    I had a post in honor of Bapu's birthday last Thursday myself. If you're interested, you can find it here.

  8. Must be repair. Could almost be demolition! It looks like it is crumbling.

    Great shot. Your son has a good eye.

  13. A very active pic with a fascinating mix of black and white tones! I'm opting it is a re-construction!

  15. It's always a pleasure to become a virtual tourist at Mumbai.
    These buildings seems to try to find their place in modernity, and among glass buildings.
    Thank your son for the idea.

  17. Repair? Around here those 'curtains' go up on renovation/repairs ... construction only gets 'curtained' when they are pouring cement ...

    Good shot!
