The snaps have turned out amazingly superb of even the very common things. Thanks for sharing and rekindling memories. This is more commonly known as Mahim Nature Park and you have posted the map of it as well. Quite a few school edutainment day picnics are also arranged there.

Its a good step to educate your neighbors that they need not drive 100KMs far for a photowalk. Keep flowing.
Thanks jacs! Lot of the out-of-city-outing plans don't materialize because of the time constraints. When they materialize, we tend to cram too many things into it and then it becomes hectic. Quick outings to places like these (which are literally 15-20 minutes drive away) provide great opportunities for a break which is not too taxing on either schedule or the body.

Interesting thought about TBHP meet. Let's explore during the Powai mini-meets. May be there would be a subset who loves photography and cars.

Ah, very interesting! Would say hi to him if I bump into him next time.

Thanks stringbh. I am a learner. Went to the photowalk to hone the skills a bit and compare notes with others. Did get some fantastic tips from some of the experts.

Just for your information, I'm part of this club called MWS that does a photowalk/photoshoot every weekend. I haven't been able to go for quite a few weekends now, but I used to be a regular for around 2 years or so.
We've covered Maharashtra Nature Park, Chor Bazaar, Ovalekar Wadi Butterfly Park, Manori Beach, Aarey colony, Borivali National Park, Vasai etc etc. among others.

So yes, one doesn't need to drive out of Mumbai to click pics at all.
Mumbai Weekend Shoot! I am a member on FB. A friend of mine had done a couple of photowalks with them and asked me if I am interested. I am definitely interested, but did not want to sign up for too many commitments.
Let's see if we two can join one of the MWS photowalk. Would be fun.

Love that movie! Been ages since I have seen that movie. Care to elaborate the reference?

You are right parsh! Many know this place as Mahim Nature Park and when I understood that Maharashtra Nature Park is the same place, some dots connected. Have heard about it a couple of times, but this was my first time to actually visit. Good peaceful place.

Photography in a park for a contest, the scene where they shoot the monkey holding a mirror ...

Is there is a D'Mello road/flyover nearby?

Very good pictures SDP !
I had never heard of this place until now.

What camera do you use and on what mode do you click pictures? Full manual mode?

Pictures shot with D90. Used 18-55 kit lens for broad shots. Mostly used the 70-300 telephoto zoom and the 50mm prime. I typically use apperture priority mode. Full manual is still a few years away (if at all) .
The couple of macros are taken by reverse-mounting the 50mm prime and a forced manual mode.

Don't worry, a lot of professionals use Aperture Priority for all their pics. You only have to keep an eye on the ISOs.
