A Kite Sunset in Mumbai

Kites seem to have made permanent homes in the hundreds of high rise buildings that have started to dominate Mumbai's skyline in the recent past. From almost all high floors you can observe them circling, searching for prey in the confusion and flux of the ground. This kite seems to like the look of a building under construction, heading towards both warmth and a new home. This, then, is the new urban symbiotic relationship, high-rises and kites.
