Top Shots: Slum at Dusk…

…In the movie The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, which takes place in India, Penelope Wilton’s character asks Tom Wilkinson’s, “How can you bear this country? What do you see that I don’t?” He responds, “The lights, colors, smiles; they teach me something.”

I think these photos capture a bit of what he means. Click on them for the full resolution sights!

  1. Absolutely beautiful photos, John! Can you post a Google map link to where the slum is? I’m only interested because of the work I’ve done in Faridabad as well after being inspired by your work.
    But a small correction if I may, it was Penny Wilton asking Tom how he could bear the country. I only remember because I cried at his answer and even though it was a script, how one could sum up India so eloquently!
    Thank you so much for your posts and your work.
