Colonnades

There are some lovely buildings in Mumbai in various states of repair and most of them are very photogenic.  I'd somehow got through nearly two years here without going out with the express intention of photographing buildings.   I'm taking steps to amend that error and in recognition of that, here's a colonnade:

colonial architecture in mumbai, the Salvation Army collonade

I like colonnades, my absolute favourite types are the SE Asian shophouse covered walkways complete with clashing tiles and and goods spillling out onto the streets. That said, there's a lot to be said for a nice British colonial colonnade too and this one with the Salvation Army shields and colours is amongst my favourites in Mumbai

Hi,
Yeah South Mumbai has some really charming buildings specially from CST to Flora Fountain. Another area of Mumbai where i feel the buildings exude an old world charm is in Bandra west, specially the pakhady's or the Christian colonies. You should check them out:)

I really don't know Bandra at all, I'll make it a project to get out there and explore. Thanks for the tip.
