Colours & moods of City Market

Markets are a great way of discovering a city is what I’ve found. Besides visiting monuments and the more famous sights, if you want to really get a flavour of a city, my suggestion would be to visit a market!

Small, medium, big – no matter what size they are, they are alway abuzz with activity. It’s easy to get lost in the narrow roads and bylanes for a few hours and not know how the time flew past…

In Bangalore, I’ve made it a point to visit quite a few of them – Russell, Malleshwaram, Gandhi Bazaar, Chikpet & Avenue Road, Majestic, Madiwala and the absolutely crazy City Market – and try and document some of the sights and sounds.


It’s a busy, busy place any time of day. Here’s a flower seller looking out for customers.


A Morning at Russel Market

A bunch of us shutterbugs met at Russel Market last weekend to spend time clicking. It was the first time I was there, and also the first time I was trying to shoot in a marketplace. I had a good time with the camera, and here are some images.

How is this pose?

This old man was ever-smiles and was glad to pose when I requested. When I was done, he asked in near perfect English: “For what purpose you are taking photos?”

Stars everywhere!

Doesn’t the city look pretty at night, all decked in lights and welcoming the festive spirit?

Unforunately, I wasn’t in town this Christmas, but here’s a beautiful shot of the streets of Russell Market, Bangalore which wore an especially festive look!
