Mumbai, India. Aarey Colony.
I don't see myself as a landscape photographer. But there are some scenes worth capturing even if they are genre-benders. Aarey Colony has proven to be the perfect spot for urban landscapes of a sort, a perfect mix of rural and urban aesthetics rolled up into one. The key ingredient for me is people - or at least one person. And then the background comes into play in a big way in a scene like this because of the buildings, which serve as a contrast to the countryside. The grasses and trees make the rest of it interesting to me due to the layering effect of all the elements sandwiched together. There aren't many places like this in the world. I'm almost willing to say - only in Mumbai - if you want to include the fact that somewhere out there in the forest dwell a few leopards.
