City Market, Bangalore

I spent about an hour in a neighborhood called City Market, in Bangalore. It was not at all what I expected. I expected more like a farmers market and vegetable bazaar, but what I found was an incredible neighborhood packed with vitality. I shot all of these images in about a 3 block area. Wow, what a dramatic neighborhood!
This bamboo is used for handmade ladders and building scaffolding.

These guys are selling Indian music cds.

Hot samosas, anyone?
Bollywoods next stars.
All these photos are taken by me, so there.
Have a nice day.

I like the pic of the sweet shop and the last one of the kids. So when did you go and when did you get back? I am so out of the loop right now and I am in desperate need of getting back in.

Take care!
