Street Photography Walk in Mumbai

After meeting loveable people and eating tasty food in Gujarat, I arrived in Mumbai, the second most populous metropolitan area in India and ninth most populous agglomeration in the world. Mumbai, a busy and wealthy city, houses many billionaires and millionaires and on the contrary the poor too.

As suggested by my best friend, I took a stroll across a few important parts of the city recommended based on my tastes and preferences. My first stop was at CST Station and walk from there through Victoria Dock so I could witness old Victorian Architecture built during the British period.

I loved this moment – If you notice clearly, you’ll find the Monk watching the lady offer something to the poor man while a couple notices the scene. Humanity exists and it must. People must help and love one and other regardless of caste, creed, et cetera. We are all human beings, the same species, in this planet

If you zoom in the picture, you will notice that a Punjab Association has funded for this public toilet. Surprisingly, the area around this toilet is spic and span because of hard working people cleaning round the clock.

Am guessing the prices of these properties are sky rocketing and possibly not for sale or rent any more. If it is for rent or sale, the owner must or tenant must have deep pockets

I liked the lamp post in a line. On two sides at this juncture, there was a red signal and on one side there was a green signal. This was shot around 4ish pm and it was quite for Mumbai standards

Look closely, on the left side of the frame, through the window you will find a couple romancing and not caring about people around them. In between the 2 cars, you will find people walking, few sitting and conversing and a taxi driver watching these scenes from his car while I shoot this moment from my taxi using my Canon DSLR Camera

My uncle gave me his car and driver to commute in Mumbai. And during our journey, my driver got excited after noticing this car accident scene and indicating the same to me so I could take photos. Looks like both the car and bus driver were impatient and lacked common sense and driving sense

It is impossible to find Nariman Point without a couple romancing. Day or night, you’ll find many of them romancing. Truly amazing and beautiful scenes

Real story – Outside Bombay Stock Exchange

I was walking on the street where the BSE was and suddenly I found a few photographers clicking. Only after a moment I realised they were clicking photos of me. It was the day the budget was announced. So, there were many journalists and photographers outside BSE. A couple of journalists approached me and asked details about me as they found my beanie interesting. I politely refused but they kept following me and requesting me to pose for them outside BSE. So, I did not want to show off and act weird so did pose but soon realised that there were so many photographers and continually clicking photos of me with the BSE in the background. One journalist screamed that my photos will be published in the newspaper the next day but I did not ask him which newspaper so I really do not know if it was published or not.
