Nathaniel D’Costa snaps equivalents from the big screen in things he sees in everyday life

TRANSFORMERS (2007)
Graffiti lines the lanes of Chapel Road in Bandra, Mumbai, but this is possibly the most creative artwork of all. The artist uses the existing ugly electric switch boxes as a prop for his futuristic design.

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE EXORCIST (1973)
This lone rosary was found hanging on a side wall of Gloria Church in Byculla, Mumbai. The texture of the rosary against the old wall was hard to ignore.

 

 

 

 

 

 

CITY OF ANGELS (1998)
Possibly one of the most recognizable spots of Mumbai, Marine drive. Shot at an overbridge, the picture shows you a bit of the famous Queen’s necklace and long traffic trails.

 

 

 

LIFE OF PI (2012)
Seas and sunsets just make the perfect combination. You just cannot go wrong with a picture that has these elements. Throw in a tired bird resting on a fishing boat and Ang Lee’s masterpiece springs to mind.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SHOLAY (1975)
Even though the scooter is now unusable, there is a classic touch to the Bajaj and its sidecar. It immediately brings back memories of freedom and fun.

 

 

 

 

CHILDREN OF THE CORN (1984)

Fresh rice stalks grow tall in a field. The stunning contrasts of green caught my eye. Taken in Vikramgard, Maharshtra.

 

 

 

WALK THE LINE (2005)
This beautiful old pipe organ is unfortunately gathering dust and cobwebs at Gloria Church in Byculla. You can almost hear the faint strains of the choir by just looking at its magnificent old keys and pipes.

 

 

 

THE BIRDS (1963)
A flock of seagulls and crows fight for left over scraps on the beach. Picture taken at Bandra, Mumbai.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES (2004)
Take a legendary motorcycle, put it against a stunning backdrop and voila! Taken at the old abandoned bridge in Borim, Goa.

 

 

 

 

GANGS OF WASSEPUR (2012)
Something about the lone government jeep peeking out from behind a house intrigued me. This was taken at an ashram in Panvel, Maharashtra.
