Matthew Atkin photographs the boats of Mumbai

Mumbai 27

My photographing brother Matthew Atkin has been excercising his camera around the harbours of Mumbai again. I hope you enjoy the shots.

Naturally, the dried fish are Bombay duck, a local fish that is usually dried and salted to preserve it, and is then fried for eating as an appetizer before a meal. Strangely, it apparently has a powerful smell but little taste…

Thanks for the photos Matt! For more of my brother’s excellent and exotic photos, click here.

Colour on the Thames, 1935

Colour on the Thames (1935) – a boat study, a film-poem, a picture postcard – and, in 1935, probably something of an experiment too. Photography by Adrian Klein, colour by Gaspar-Color.
