Vintage Mumbai Picnik’ed

Let me share a few vintage SoBo photographs taken on a day during the Kala Ghoda festival. South Bombay, with its colonial architecture and nostalgic charm, always offers something that the rest of the city can never do. Now that I am out of Mumbai, SoBo looks even more seductive. Some of these photographs have been clicked by fellow slacker Kontham Sudhir.

I have used heavy post processing on these photographs. Basically I wanted to experiment the possibilities of the excellent online photo editing service Picnik. I was inspired to experiment with the vintage look by this excellent photo blog on Florence.

Due to my incompetence, some of the photographs may look a bit overdone or even over the top. Nevertheless I enjoyed using Picnik and especially liked the cinemascope mode which has been applied in four out of nine photographs here.

Let me start with a tacky one… I know it sucks but I found a certain Edwoodian charm in this effect.
