decoding the mystery called Mumbai.......the city that never sleeps
Sepia almost always imparts that sense of the past. Due to all those old photographs - I wonder what a child's perception would make of it.
The sepia treatment really does give the photo an old-fashioned look - almost timeless, apart from those few modern intrusions that you mention.
I agree with no car it could pass for a much older image.
You're right: except for the cars you could have fooled me!
Oh yes that is true. It really looks like one of those heritage photos. My Monochrome photo is up here. Hope you can pass by, too. Thanks!
this is perfect!
ya.the building indeed looks ancient..BTW u should click another similar photo of my bldg in vashi.it's opp vashi plaza (d-type) and was the first to be built in vashi. last yr when i saw it was in a dilapidated condition. there's a tree growing from the terrace. it's first bldg while entering vashi -5-storeyed..and thanks for yr comment. great to hear fm u after long..
I find that one of the intriguing things about b&w's, the way they transport us so easily into another long gone time and space, at least on the surface.
The city has such a patina of oldness ..
Ah yes, this is so true!! It really does look like a photo from the 50's... how neat is that!! The sepia does suit this photo!
