Hi All,

In the Lonely Planet travel book of India, Kolkata has but a mere 5 pages of coverage, yet the six days spent venturing deep into its various districts bear no justification to this blatant disregard of what must have been the most magical and fulfilling experience that I have had in the longest of time.

The first two things that caught my attention about Kolkata are its charming tram ways, the only one that is still in operations in the whole of India, and the yellow ambassador cabs. Coupled that with an entire city that is magically locked still in a vintage era many decades ago, I'm totally sold. It was a street photography trip turned vintage goodies shopping spree as I made the pleasant discovery of old alarm clocks, switches, fans and typewriters all going for dirt cheap prices.

And in this third trip to India, the locals proof yet again that they're the friendliest street photography subjects that you'll ever get in the world. The daily life can be a string of painstaking chores, but they always have to pose for you.

Great shots. 2,5,7 are my favorites. Hopefully, I'll get to that part of the world someday!


As a new travel photographer, may I ask what focal lengths you primarily use when out and about? (I looked at your website and was blown away by some of your shots).


It doesn't matter how big your camera is, it's how you use it! :cool:

Seriously your entire album is mind blowing. You are painting a different Kolkata in my head. I said different , because I have seen Kolkata many times ( its about 200 miles from my home town), I understand the language, I know what it looks like.

Also your post-processing is phenomenal. May I ask the gear you used.

With your permission can I share your page with my fellow Bengali friends to stir up some nostalgia. Thanks

Thanks Gall551. I'm thinking he primarily uses his wider lenses?

two of my favourite lenses are the 35mm and the 50mm. that's the two that i use very often, and then the ultrawide 16-35mm for some more dramatic shots.
