High-tech

Walking on the streets of Kolkata I saw this camera store. Had to take a pic and share with the world. Now I think I may go to F64 and search some stuff.

Resting

On the side of the highway, the food sellers take advantage of the departing bus and having no customers for a while they can rest and play some cards game.

Fishmongers

That day it was a holiday and the tradition it was to eat fish (on top of that, fish is a Bengali speciality), so the streets of the Ukhra village were full with fish vendors. They were happy so see me, a white man, something unusual there and very eager to get photographed.

Bright future

So I think this picture is the best to start the illustration of my recent travel to India, I spent most of the time on the Ukhra village, but also in the Kolkata and Durgapur cities, all of them in the West Bengal. The state was for a long while under a communist government and it shows, not only from the many signs you can see on the walls. More to come 🙂
