Heart of the Action

Hyderabad, Charminar, Mahesh Patil
Nonstop Hyderabad

There is an unmistakable energy about night markets of Charminar.

While I was strolling around the streets to capture night shots my nose made me feel like i was in carnivores heaven, but ears quickly brought me back on earth. Street fashion, glitter, friendly people, noisy auto rickshaws… they are all in abundance here.

This frame captures the distant Charminar pumping out the life into the streets.

The Bangleman of Laad Bazar!

Local street markets offer great subjects for photography. I will be posting photographs shot at Laad bazaar in old Hyderabad. Known for its famous bangle shops, the market had many things waiting to be captured; from street antiques shops to ittarwalas, from fresh fruits to fashion accessories , this market has it all.

While strolling around the Mecca Masjid I found my frame – a glum faced Chudiwala (Bangle salesman) amongst his glittering, colourful bangles!
