The Fort of Mumbai

 “Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living..”                                                                                                                ..Miriam Beard

It was a wonderful evening and the sun was about to set. I was wandering down the streets of Fort, Mumbai looking at the beautiful buildings and architectural sights around me. Fort is in the heart of Mumbai with the Bombay Stock Exchange, the High Courts, the Bombay House, various Government Buildings, swanky offices of large Banks etc. I was always in love with this place because it brought a smile on my face. Today people might say that the commercial areas have shifted towards the suburbs but still, the charm and the aura of this place is unbelievable.

Here are a few of the photographs that i have clicked during my photo-walk on the streets of Fort. It was my first ever and to be honest nothing beats the thrill and the excitement of a nice long walk as one captures these moments in photographs and pays detailed attention to the surroundings which we just overlook in our routine tensions and day to day life. Such activities always brought a smile on my face and a spring in my step.

So, next time you’re walking from your office to the station or from home to somewhere else, look around and take in all the sights around you. Life is in all these little moments, funny sights, random people and this feeling of being alive.
