Bangladesh
My first view of Old Dhaka was from a bicycle rickshaw adorned, as most of these vehicle are, with portraits of Dhollywood movie stars. Earlier when I had asked about taking a bus to Old Dhaka, the most conservative Islamic and historical part of the city, ...

The Great Art Exhibition
Durga Puja,  a 5 day annual holiday here in Kolkata, has just concluded. During the Puja the city's subway system doesn't open until 2 p.m. but stays open until 4 a.m. If the question is, "What is the population out doing until the early morning hours?" The...

Paris Hilton
Calcutta is as close as anyone today can get to the Paris of the 1930's. I might be the first to notice this. That Calcutta sidewalk in my first image—if I had bothered to remove the umbrella, do a black and white conversion, and step back a few feet, might...

Return of the Rats
Meals for the rats' are mixed in such big vats that you'd expect to see a swarm of rats crawling all over the temple's marble floor. Alas, the mass of rats spend their lives of scurrying around in dark enclosures at the edges of the temple compound. Only th...

No matter how hard they try, some animals just aren't photogenic. Some animals are the color of dirt. I'm hoping I'll be better at  photographing rats than camels, so I'm leaving the Pushkar Camel Fair this morning for the so-called rat temple at Deshnoke. ...

Calcutta street photography
Rick asked that we take a characteristic picture of each other's photographic style while taking pictures together in the streets of Calcutta last Tuesday. Rick's technique involves convincing perfect strangers to let him frame them in a darkened doorway fo...

inside Sri Ranganathasvami Temple
In the last post I had nothing but 2 ipod snap shots to show you of the inside of a great Tamil Nadu temple. Here I've gotten my camera through all of the seven concentric walled courtyards of the temple in Kaveri on one of their most sacred days. It's the ...
