Worli Koliwada is a community of original fishermen ‘Kolis’ from Mumbai who has been fishing in the same waters for centuries, they have brightly colored boats and diligently spend their mornings fishing and selling fish. There is also a historic small fort built in the 17th century by the British that gives a vantage point of the whole area. They live in houses and shanties on small lanes that go across almost 2.5 kms all the way to the sea. The lanes are so narrow that they have a width of 3-5 ft, and in a lane you can have a household item, cooking surface, water storage, parking space, or place of worship and of course, people walking by and living their life. Children running, cats ignoring the world and the sun setting on Bandra Worli Sea Link.
The place is a dream come true not only for those who love the genre of street photography but also gives us lovely vistas of the sunset on the sea, not to miss the Bandra Worli Sea Link and the Worli Skyline behind the Koliwada slums.
PhotoWorks will provide a guided photography walk, including tips on composition and camera settings and helping out each participant.
When?: Sunday 6th Oct 4 pm – 7 pm Meeting point: Worli Koliwada Bus Stand (and then we walk ~1-1.5 Kms to the sea!) What to expect?: Street photography, landscape photography, portrait photography, sunset, slow shutter photography, etc.
