Mumbai Dhobi Ghat – Laundry outdoors

 

Mumbai Dhobi Ghat has been called, and is still in some places, the world’s largest outdoor laundry.
I don’t know if it still is, but it is a large area.

I got there, to the laundry place, rather late mostly due to my fondness of a good hotel breakfast. 😉

So I arrived around 9:30 am and they had just finished the daily laundry and everybody was washing themselves instead. Much to my dismay, since I really don’t want to bother people in their “bathroom”. Once the surprised settled and I started talking to people they invited me in and some actually wanted pictures as they were bathing/washing themselves.
I spent about an hour at the laundry before I headed towards Mumbai again.
I decided to walk back “blind”, that’s to say I didn’t want to look at the map… just walk and experience the streets/neighborhoods and try to find some photos. Those photos are on my Street Photography site framingthestreet HERE

Here’s a couple of photos from Dhobi Ghat Laundry in Mumba during this short visit. Take my advice, and go early.

India 2024 – My next trip…

I am traveling to India in January 2024 for almost 5 weeks. I haven’t done anything really since before the pandemic, so this will be my first trip since 2019.

I will start my journey in Mumbai on the 13th of January and then continue exploring and photographing what ever comes my way.  There will be dedicated street photography and what ever else I find travel related to shoot.

Ohh, I almost forgot. I have bought the New DJI Pocket 3 creator kit. This will be my gate to Youtube travel videos. My hope is to get a few videos up for mostly myself and my friends and family to enjoy.
I hope You will to !

 

These are a few shots from my last trip to India in 2007. Long time ago !   😉
