Mumbai Lens: Misty monsoon avatar

Quick ! Tell, me, what images come to your mind when you think of monsoons and rains in Mumbai? The waves lashing the Worli seaface or Marine Drive. People wading through (at least) knee-deep water. Submerged tracks. Buses and taxis still plying in spite of heavy rainfall. Victims of landslides or collapsed buildings…

I present to you here none of these images; instead, what I present here are lesser seen images, avatars, of Mumbai. Images that almost made me feel like I was somewhere else.

So, tell me, have you seen Mumbai in such a misty avatar? πŸ™‚

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.

  2. I visited the Nehru centre last year for a seminar. You brought back some interesting memories. The pictures are indeed alluring… they make you feel misty and dreamy yourself. Good job. πŸ™‚
