Some random street photos from all of Mumbai (Bombay). Some streets are quiet while others are chaotic.
Mumbai (formerly known as Bombay) is many things. It’s the economic capital of India as well as its richest city. It is also the most populated city of India and the second most populated urban area in the world. It’s also home to one of the most prolific film industries in the world (Bollywood!). Also this city has been home to me for 19 years of my life!
I think what everyone can agree on is that Mumbai is a city of contrasts. Rich and poor. Penthouses and roadside shanties. Lamborghinis and Bullock Carts (though Bullock carts are very rare now!) you will find it all in this city. When I loaded up my ActionSampler with its first film I was determined to capture the streets of this city in all it’s liveliness.
Here are some photos I took with the first film:
Mumbai has been a target for terrorists in recent years and the government is trying to take safety measures, though it can be difficult because the city is large and over populated.
These are some of the street photos I took with the ActionSampler. Sorry for the random post, it’s just that these are places from all over the city! I have a lot more photos of different locations in Mumbai and I plan to put them up soon.

While waiting for the new Lomography gem, the wonderful Russar+ lens, I took some photos at a fun fair with my wonderful Mir 20/3.5 super wide angle lens from the big panoramic wheel. Here I'll tell you some tips about the use of this kind of lens. Read more after the jump!
While I know that many prefer their street photos in black and white, I also think it's worth snapping the streets in color once in a while. Let me share with you some of the ways I see and capture the cities I go to in glorious technicolor in this simple tipster!
This article is dedicated to the French street photographer Raymond Depardon and his wonderful series depicting people communicating with mobile phones from all over the world. For this tribute, I compiled my own series of photos of people using their mobile phones or tablets in the city of Como. Take a look!

Where are you headed to this summer? Where I'm from summer has ended too soon, so I'm still daydreaming of sand and seafoam. I decided to check out the archives for some cool beach-y snapshots and came across a lot of interesting underwater photos! Check out my finds after the jump; hopefully this list will inspire you to grab a Fisheye Sub or a Krab, along with your Fisheye cameras and LC-A+, for some underwater adventure.
Some weeks ago, I made a tribute to the great photographer Robert Frank and his 1958 black and white series taken in New York from a bus window. He is the master of the ordinary moments, capturing the essence of daily life in a series of free and random sequence of photos where nothing important happens! And as I've written there I wanted to take a similar experiment with color film, which would change the perception of the environment where people live. Read more after the jump!
