Photographer's Note

Shaniwar Wada, the stately mansion of the Peshwa rulers, located in the city of Pune in Maharashtra, India, was ceded to the British in 1818. In 1828, a fire of unknown origin that is said to have raged for seven days gutted down most parts of the building sparing only the five teak gateways and the nine bastions. It is still a mystery why the fire was not put down or noticed by the people. Shown in the photo are the steps leading to the top of one of the bastions.

I was not sure whether the colour or the b/w version was better/worse, so I posted both, the b/w one as workshop.
