CityLights: Sassy SoBo

Je t’aime Bombay

SHARE

Every city has one place that everyone flocks to, the hub of the city, one that appears in every travel guide. Guess what part of the city qualifies for the same in aamchi Mumbai? South Bombay, of course, or SoBo as we call it! People from all over the country and the world come to Marine Drive to take in the scenic beauty. Today’s photo series is by one individual who came in as a tourist and then fell in love with SoBo.

Rohit Drablani, a native of Indore, is a mass media student in Jai Hind College. His ardour for photography and endearment for SoBo keeps growing which is reflected in the way he captures these images.

He brings into play an assortment of photography techniques like motion blur, long exposure among others to make his project diverse from how SoBo is habitually showcased. Can you tell which spots Rohit has captured in his photographs?
