Futnani Chambers.

A perfect example of the decaying British architecture left behind in Calcutta. Some of the more prestigious buildings are maintained, but many are left falling apart. This building is now on the verge of collapse and it seems there is little being done about it.

Yet another photo from South Park Street Cemetery... These monuments were huge!  Just a staggering display of the wealth of the English families of the British Empire in Calcutta, India.  This tomb is for Sir William Jones, a linguistic prodigy that learned 13 languages thoroughly and another 28 reasonably well, making him a 'hyperpolyglot'.  Incredible!

South Part Street Cemetery.

This huge non-religious cemetery in Calcutta was a quiet and eerie jungle of giant and imposing memorials.

At Tiger Hill, the next best thing after the Himalayas was this great communications tower; it was such a mess, and just a little bit Sci-fi!

No Photography.

The Victoria Memorial is a major landmark in Calcutta built to honour Queen Victoria after her death in 1902.  Photography was strictly prohibited inside, and it as such a shame too considering how stunning this building was.  I found out that photography was not allowed by taking this shot :D

One of the very few crucifixes at the spooky and otherwise non-religious South Park Street Cemetery, Calcutta. Actually I looked all over and only found this one.

Of The Earth.

Shot from the edge of and facing away from Jaipur's pink city, this dusty suburban sprawl reaches right to the edge of the overlooking hill fortress.

Queen Of Hill Stations.

This view is of a smaller town on the way to Darjeeling, sprawled down the hillside with the amazing Kangchenjunga range floating magnificently in the sky above.

Tiger Hill.

Elevated shot of Tiger Hill and it's magnificent view across the Kangchengjunga Range.

Small Sights, Big Sounds.

Shot this from the top of an 8 story octagonal tower, where I got entangled with a bat halfway up the dark and tight spiral staircase! Creating diorama effect images is fun!
