Bandra Fort Couple
Mumbai, India. Bandra West.
Whenever I get new lenses - or a new camera system and lenses - I usually find myself returning to Bandra Fort, sooner or later. I think more than the place, it's the fact that I know exactly how the light is going to behave after sunrise in this particular spot. There's a narrow window from say, 7:15am - official sunrise today, and when the sun is just high enough to no longer cast beautiful and more softer light. I know once the sun hits that sweet spot, usually somewhere just above the buildings in the distance, I pack up and go to shoot the length of Bandstand where the light has yet to reach, and only touching down with any force at Chimbai Beach to the north. I've learned over time to follow the light, not necessarily the scenery.
