Mumbai’s BEST buses are known for their trademark red coloured buses, But only when they are not covered with advertisements, or have their AC buses painted a hideous purple. But one day, about two months back, I saw a new colour on the BEST bus. A lovely new, fresh, colour.
I fell in love with the electric blue colour, and of course the double-decker itself—there are so few of them left. The electric blue colour on an old BEST bus was so fresh and cheerful, that many people actually stopped for a second look. And some like me stopped to take photographs.
I actually found this blue better than the red of the BEST buses. What do you think of this blue? Should BEST change from its trademark red? Do tell.
Mumbai Lens is a photographic series which, as the name suggests, is Mumbai-centric and is an attempt to capture the various moods of the city through my camera lens. You can read more posts from this series here.
