I was in Mumbai earlier this month, and it was the first time I photographed the city’s outdoors. Few places can offer such diversity to a street/outdoor photographer as Mumbai does, thanks to it’s sheer size and contrasts.
Although this is not my first visit to the city, this is the first time I noticed how tall do Mumbai’s buildings seem to rise, in whatever little space available. I have seen many images of Mumbai with skyscrapers looming in the background and had assumed that they exist in the photographs by choice (of the photographer’s composition). They seemed to fit well in those compositions. During this visit to Mumbai, I realized that if your image has Mumbai’s skies, it is very unlikely that there are no skyscrapers, no matter which part of the city it is!
