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.

Being a great street photographer doesn't mean you should be shooting at famous capitals for their architecture or their visual appeals -- it's taking the heart of humanity in the city -- and the Big Apple just happens to win everyone at that.
