Mumbai In the Blogosphere (2): Mumbai Daily Photo

Mumbai Daily Photo, a part of the City Daily Photo network, has some really interesting pictures on the city.

The header says that it’s a foreigner’s view of daily life in Mumbai, but it’s not the usual foreigner’s view. In its sweep, it stretches from North to South and East to West, to a city that extends wider than even our local’s view of it. In its concerns, it covers Mumbai’s myriad street vendors, its twisted modes of transport, its many festivals and its melting pot of people, in short, the stinking, sublime, bitter-sweet spirit of the city. It seems, incidentally, that the the contributors are fixated on Juhu beach at the moment.

I decided to blog about it when I saw that the two of the first pictures at the blog were about rickshaws (here and here). I’m obsessed with rickshaws myself and have blogged about them here, here and here.
