Rachel Lopez documents her city’s most colourful taxis.

Rarely does the interior of a taxi become a ‘grammable moment. The exception, of course, is in Mumbai, where drivers cover their car ceilings in plastic patterns so lovely, it'd be a shame not to take a selfie. Rachel Lopez, Mumbai local and journalist for the Hindustan Times, was so enamoured with the patterns above her head that she started a hashtag for her snaps: #mumbaitaxi. Nearly 500 posts later, she’s still finding new interiors to share. (There are about 58,000 metered taxis in the city.) To see more, head to Rachel's Instagram.
