World Photography Day 2019: On World Photography Day, here are shots from Delhi that prove why the city is a favourite of photographers.

Behind the veil of grey landscapes and the endless run that is city life, we often end up ignoring all the sights, smells, and sounds that make Delhi the beauty it is. But, to a photographer, the city is always shot ready. Be it the vivid sunsets, the local chaat being tossed in a pan, the monuments that have stood the test of time, or simply the people of the city who are oblivious of how interesting they are, nothing escapes the shutter.

Delhi is an eclectic mix of cultures, religions, faiths, and beliefs that have come together over time to make the city what it is today.

The city might be famous for its winter, but it is spring that really brings Delhi to life. From bright yellow Laburnums to pastel-hued Crown of Thorns, there are so many shades the Capital gets painted in during spring. Here’s a shot of Qutub Minar in spring.

Although polluted and grey, the Yamuna is teeming with life and often you would find yourself marvelling at the ecosystem the river supports. Here’s a captivating shot of migratory birds swarming around a boat on the river.
