Photographer's Note

This shot was taken at Delhi's Jantar Mantar situated in the modern day Connaught Place (Rajiv Chowk).
It consists of 13 architectural astronomy instruments, built by Maharaja Jai Singh II of Jaipur, from 1724 onwards, and is one of five built by him, as he was given by Mughal emperor Muhammad Shah the task of revising the calendar and astronomical tables.
One has been used to looking at this place and the instruments painted in red ever since I can remember...but a media report recently mentioned that this place would now be turned to white as it was orginally white in colour. I wonder if it will look the same in its new colour and will give same number of opportunities to photographers.
