Street Shot Sundays Story & Stats
This Sunday’s Street Shot of the Week was taken in the Worli district of Mumbai, India. The Worli fishing village here has become a popular area to visit in Mumbai. The Koli people have lived and fished here for thousands of years and walking around it takes you back in time. It feels preserved within the rapidly developing city and has a nice, relaxing atmosphere to walk around and explore among the friendly people.
The village is very colorful with brightly painted walls and I was out with some local photographer friends when we come up to this spot in the photo. It was nearing sunset and the light was shining nicely on a few men working by a red wall. Two men were working with some metal coils and I liked the shadow of one mirroring the other. I decided to place another man’s hands in the foreground, which hid the man creating the shadow, while also including the woman and some of the yellow wall in the far background.
Colors, light and layers are always fun to play with when shooting in India. Just watch out for your own shadow trying to sneak into the photo :)
