Photos taken with my ActionSampler of two famous places in Mumbai/Bombay- Colaba Causeway - a famous commercial street & Gateway of India, an extremely famous seaside monument.
A few weeks ago I decided to go to South Bombay for a little sightseeing (even though I’ve lived in Bombay for 15 years!)
The first stop was Colaba Causeway. There are many ways to get here, you can take a train to CST Terminus or Chruchgate & walk or take a rickshaw from there. This street is officially know as Shahid Bhagat Singh road after a famous Indian freedom fighter but everybody just calls it Colaba Causeway. If you like shopping for antiques & quirky stuff, you will love this place.
You will find anything from jewelry, brass antiques, typical Indian slippers, clothes (both Indian & western). Colaba Causeway is a shoppers heaven, but you have to be good at bargaining to get great deals. Whatever price the roadside vendor quotes, you should try to reduce the price to half! The shops are all fixed rate shops, of course.
Next up I decided to walk to the gateway of India. It’s pretty close to Colaba Causeway.
The Gateway of India is Mumbai’s most famous monument. It was built to commemorate the visit of King George V and Queen Mary to Bombay.
I prefer being outdoors whenever I go on a vacation at the seaside. For this reason, I always choose to stay at a campsite instead of a hotel. This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket. Have a look after the jump!
Where do I begin? Believe me, I know many places in Bandung. From a cozy cafe to where the famous street food and maybe even drinks can be found, to places for lomowalks, it would be my pleasure to show you all around Bandung - the city I love and the city of love!
In this article, I'll show you my 2014 in analogue through the letters of the alphabet. All these photos were taken in the streets of my city, Como, or in close proximity (a few kilometers away from it), mainly during public or sporting events, and all in black and white.
In 1966, American artist Dan Graham published an article about typical one-family homes in ordinary American suburbs built after World War II. He used a cheap Kodak Instamatic camera, with a deliberately amateur approach. In this article, I wrote a tribute to him with a series of photos taken in the suburbs of my city, Como, using my pretty Diana Mini camera. Read more after the jump!
This is the story of my first adventure on the beach this year. In the middle of June, I took my first sunbath along the seaside on a small public beach in Varazze - a rather small and unkempt place which I will never return to in the future. Read more to find out why!
An astronomer came up with the brilliant idea of recreating the famous Vincent van Gogh masterpiece using some of the best images of celestial wonders taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. Shall we call this a work of "star-ception?"
Cult flick and 8-bit animation fans will surely get a kick out of this one. Animator Henry Dutton is back with more 8-bit action in this slash and play animation of the two volumes of "Kill Bill" trilogy.
While I was browsing through my first photo album, I came across a series of photos taken in 1981 during a beach holiday at the French coastal village of St. Gilles Croix de Vie in Vendee. I took these photographs with my first camera that I received for my 11th birthday. Have a look!
