Exploring Sassoon Docks with @sam_kulavoor and @thomashowtsang that took these pics. Part of the fellowship SquareWorks Laboratory in Mumbai! It is being such a great experience and I am so grateful for the invitation @thisladypaints #sassoondocks#saalmubarak#india#mumbay#bombay
No sense is left unaffected at Mumbai's incredibly atmospheric fishing docks. A scene of intense and pungent activity begins at dawn, when colourfully clad Koli fisherfolk sort the catch unloaded from fishing boats at the quay, and carries on throughout the morning. Gaggles of sari-sheathed women peel shrimp as theft-determined crows swoop in and out and fishmongers roll massive carts of huge swordfish among discarded piles of shells and drying bombil (used for Bombay duck), all against a cinematic backdrop of wooden fishing boats.
