Portraits Of 9 Mumbai Dogs And The Humans That Walk Them

Working for an online magazine as their only photographer can get more hectic than you’d imagine. Especially at Homegrown where my job role has no boundaries, I end up feeling a little bit like Moses in middle of the editorial and marketing teams. And often enough these waves come crashing down on me. It is needless to say that I jumped at the opportunity to leave office midway on what all of Mumbai claims is a crisp winter evening to go take photographs of dogs being walked. I couldn’t help but feel great; I was actually getting paid to go and play with dogs by the sea. And capture a couple of special moments too.

They say that every dog has his day. Here are some dogs that have it their way, every single day.
