Diwali Street Market

Indian street markets have an indomitable energy. I went for a photowalk on Diwali day and came back with my head buzzing with Diwali spirit! While Mumbai is the capital of Mall culture in India, every middle class locality has it’s own street market which is the epicenter of action.

These markets are filled with emotions…  innocence & happiness…  gloom & greed.

Diwali Night

Marine Drive is a 4.3-kilometre-long boulevard in South Mumbai in the city of Mumbai. It is the best place to watch best of the Diwali fireworks in Mumbai. This was my first attempt at night photography with my Canon 6D.

Siesta in Park

I could not help but click this guy enjoying his siesta at the Cross Maidan, Mumbai. This maidan is at the heart of Mumbai’s business district and is always bustling with activity.

This was shot from a small jetty near the famous Haji Ali Dargah, Mumbai. The dargah contains the tomb of Sayed Peer Haji Ali Shah Bukhari and is one of the most recognizable landmarks of Mumbai.
