#Mumbai – The eternal favourite

0

If there is one thing that can bring back a sense of normalcy and belonging, it is a walk across the #Mumbai townside; perfect antidote for the lockdown. Of course, with all precautions in place.

The walk frees one up from the countless hours spent in front of the virtual world and keeps reminding us that the world outside still exists.

The Kalaghoda – Asiatic library – St Michaels Church – Flora Fountain – Kalaghoda circuit is a fabulous one and is home to many heritage buildings. It was also an opportunity to test out the new #Zeiss 85 mm f/1.8.

#Mumbai never ceases to amaze. With the new #Zeiss lens, hope to bring out newer stories of this historical city.
