When in Mumbai, we drove around few of the popular places in Mumbai and Travellingcamera visited Sea-link twice in 2 days and loved shooting here. Sea Link connects old Mumbai with new city. This Photo Journey shares more photographs of Sea Link and places from where this beautiful bridge is viewed and clicked.
I was staying at JW Marriot near Airport and didn't want to go to other side of Mumbai city and there is a toll at beginning of Sea Link. So we went till the beginning of Sea Link and took u turn from left after clicking few shots of sea, sea link and high-rise buildings on other side of the sea.
I was not happy with what I clicked at this place, so planned to come again but overall all the photographs in my opinion are average. I have seen some of the stunning photographs on web but then realized that I needed to know more about the geography of the place and what makes the best choice to shoot Sea Link.
The weather was rainy and it was hazy all around. I clicked some of these plain shots of high-rise buildings on other side of the sea.
After taking u turn before the sea link starts, we went to bandstand. After little disappointment about Shahrukh Khan's house at Bandstand, we headed towards Taj LandsEnd and came across these amazing views of Sea link. This certainly is beautiful place to shoot Sea Link and I was imagining how the bridge would look in night when lights on the bridge shine.
Next day, plan was to visit Gateway of India and we had to cross the Bridge, so we planned to stop our cab again. Light was a little better, but there was hardly any scope of moving around and trying different things and we were in little hurry.
Now we had to cross the bridge, but stopping the cab on bridge was not allowed and our driver strictly conveyed the same to us. So we calmly sat on the back seat and made our cameras to shoot while driving.
As we hit the bridge, it started raining heavily and now wiper was also running on the front glass. So we had to manage our clicks in such a way that we shoot front view without much distraction :)
Mumbai rains are crazy and very unpredictable. That was one of the main reason that we booked the cab for whole day. It was my first attempt to book Ola cab for whole day and it was not so bad, like my earlier experience with Ola.
Overall it was fun driving around Bandra-Worli sea link and clicking these photographs. I wish to spend more time in Mumbai and understand these places in better way.
If you liked this post and found it helpful, I would request you to follow these things when traveling -
- Manage your waste well and don’t litter
- Use dustbins. Tell us if you went to a place and found it hard to locate a dustbin.
- Avoid bottle waters in hills. Usually you get clean water in hills and water bottles create lot of mess in our ecosystem.
- Say big no to plastic and avoid those unhealthy snacks packed in plastic bags. Rather buy fruits.
- Don't play loud blaring music in forests of jungle camps. You are a guest in that ecosystem and disturbing the locals (humans and animals) is not polite
