India is rich. Rich in culture, food, languages, smells, traditions and Colors.

Blurry photographs for dynamism.

I love blurry pictures! They induce movement, energy, action and dynamism!

I hope you can share the love on that one too!

Dhobi Ghats - Mini Serie #3

Life in the Ghats.

More than just a massive Laundromat, the Mahalaxmi Dhobi Ghats is a quasi Bombay microcosm with its market, stores, restaurants, hotels and schools.

People work and live at the Mahalaxmi Dhobi Ghats. Kids go to school and play.

It is these kids I feature in the following photographs.

The Pink House.

Somewhere in Bombay, hidden closeby the Royal Opera House, I found that cute little pink house facing an equally forgotten flyover.

Bazaars! - Mini Serie #1

Bazaars in India come in a variety of shapes, shades, sizes and colors. One can literally find a full fledge specialty bazaar for anything: be it jewelry, tools, furniture, food, stationary etc.

This is a selection of shots taken from jewelry stalls throughout my random bazaar wanderings.

Colors, Colors and more Colors.

The following photographs were all shot at the Mahalaxmi Dhobi Ghats. I've had the chance to be able to go there many times, resulting in almost 2000 shots. I hope you enjoy these 4 shots at least as much as I enjoyed shooting them!

Dhobi Ghats - Mini Serie #1

While browsing through all my Bombay pictures I try and find little series of matching pictures. Here is one of them:

The following three pictures were all shot at the Mahalaxmi Dhobi Ghats. They feature men cleaning up in the Ghats.
The Mahalaxmi Dhobi Ghats is probably the largest laundry in the world. It is also a genuinly amazing place: high in colors and high in characters. The Dhobi Ghats are one of these truly astounding experiences one can only come across in Incredible India.

Indian Railways - On the Road again!

New York E-Train-conductor yelling in Indian accent: "Please get in the train, it's not that crowded. (door closes and opens again) Get in the freaking train, it's not Mumbai, there is space, and keep you limbs inside the train, please!" -- from www.overheardinnewyork.com

Traveling by train in India is nothing short of SPLENDID and EPIC!

Operational since April 1853, the MUMBAI SUBURBAN RAILWAY carries today more than 6.9 million commuters every day.

Below, two of Bombay's most important train stations:
Churchgate Station

and Bombay (Mumbai) Central Station

Stuff that hangs! :)

Heaps of serial hanging happening in Bombay!

Amidst all the stuff that hangs on Bombay's streets: colorful clothes, food and the ubiquitous Chili-Lime contraptions have particularly drawn my attention.
