A Drive in Mumbai

A few years ago I was lucky enough to be invited to an Indian wedding in Mumbai. The colors, the excitement and the week-long time span were all as enthusiastically expected. What I loved was the colors. Not only was the bride beautifully embellished, but as guests we were all part of the rich spectacle of decoration and celebration. On the way there I caught this portrait of my mother, in orange, ready to embark on the week of festivities, dressed the part and ready to revel.

Berlin Currywurst: any time, anywhere, any weather

I recently came back from a city-break in Berlin & one ordinary thing that fascinated me was the currywurst contraptions that the wurst-men would be wearing. Of course this is a very small part of my overall trip, the practicality of the plot intrigued me and so was happy to get this picture of the hot dog man at work. And at only one euro fifty, it’s a delicious bargain.
