This first photograph was shot from the terrace of NCPA in Mumbai and gives you an overview of the road.
The image below, shot at night from a cell-phone, will give you an idea as to why this beautiful road is called the "Queen's necklace." The row of lights shining in a curve makes it look like a diamond studded necklace with a cluster of diamonds at the pendant. As the photograph was of a low resolution, I tried to fix it, and it can perhaps be used for the web in a small size.
The photo below was shot from atop a flyover overlooking Marine Drive. It shows you the wide road and pavements, the cruising traffic and the old residential buildings that line Marine Drive. In the distance, in the top right hand corner, you can see the Air India building (the large white building), the two structures of the Oberoi Hotel to its left, and the NCPA building next to it.
The two pictures below are also shot from the flyover, from different angles. They give you a better view of the broad sidewalk and the people walking on it. Many people sit on the ledge in the evenings. Even at night the place is thronging with people. Marine Drive lines the sea and is one of the few open spaces left for people to come for some fresh air and a view of the sea.
A few taxis wait for business.
The image below gives you a closer look at the buildings mentioned above.
The picture below is shot from the other side and gives a clear view of the broad pavement of Marine Drive and the high-rise buildings of Worli, a commercial area in Mumbai. To the right of the photo is are the old residential buildings of Marine Drive. The Marine Drive pavement was re-furbished and renovated a couple of years ago.
In this last photograph the angle is a little wonky, but I still liked the photo as it has life. It captures Marine Drive, the people as well as the sea.
This last image is a sketch of Marine Drive, Mumbai. There is a tree to the left of the drawing, and Marine Drive is in the centre, curving towards the right. The buildings of Nariman Point are at the end, where the road ends. People on the pavement are walking and sitting and chatting. The sea is to the right of the pic.
Another sketch of Marine Drive, from another angle.
