The Bombay Royale - part 4

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 30 March 2012 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

This shot is a favourite of the band. Hope you enjoyed my series on The Bombay Royale - with their lavish tribute to the sounds of Bollywood cinema.

I will now pause for an Intermission on my blog...

Next week, I will be on a cruise in the Arafura Sea. We visit the Asmat Art region of Indonesia. On the way home, I stop over in Darwin and Kakadu.

Catch up with you on 20 April!

I can see why this is a fave with them...that saxophonist...the rest are serene and he's ramping it up a notch or two!!! Good pic stephen, I like how you've captured the ceiling laser lights very well.
PS: Enjoy the cruise, wish I was going too. Don't forget, take lots of pix of the wonderful scenery and activities aboard ship (which can get quite interesting, take my word for it....). See ya soon! ;oD
