Streets in the late evening, Bombay/Mumbai, India, 1994

As the sun sets over this busy Bombay/Mumbai intersection the buildings are bathed in a magical golden light. Working from top to bottom, the scene appears to increase in speed as we move downwards towards the main road. The river of taxis speeding to left and right serve as a striking counterpoint to the street life above.
