Momentous Mumbai

Returned from a dear friends wedding in Mumbai some days ago feeling overwhelmed but absolutely in love with the city.

Being inspired by the architecture, people, colors and just the smell of life…Wanted to share some images I took on my Black and White camera:

<There is so much Italian in Indians, and so much Indian in Italians. They are both people of the Madonna – they demand a Goddess, even if the religion does not provide one. Every man in both countries is a singer when he is happy; and every woman is a dancer when she walks to the shop corner .For them food is music inside the body and music is food inside the heart. The language of India and the language Italy , they make every man a poet and make something beautiful from every banalite. These are nations where love –amore, pyaar- makes a cavalier of a Borsalino on a street corner, and makes a princess of a peasant girl , if only for the second that her eyes meet yours.>>
