Starting the day - it seems that every Kolkata street has it's own little temple. Or two. This one was built around a big tree with the part inside the shrine wrapped in gold cloth.

Number 201 - I found this village woman, here in Kolkata, sitting down with her city friend to stitch a blanket from old saris, as is the custom. I asked how many she had made in her lifetime? She guessed around 200, ... so far. #kolkata #awomanswork #stitching #RvK #threadoflife

This Most Exotic Marigold Taxi was spotted this morning jostling it's way down the middle of the busiest section of the Kolkata flower market. Innumerable tons of marigolds find their way all around India for use in spiritual activities as well as in decoration. These huge strings of flowers actually weigh a lot each and I know I would sink to the ground under the weight that these walking flower patch men carry as they transport flowers into and out of the market.

Pumped full of colour - I was talking with a friend yesterday about our mutual travels and she commented how special the colours in India were. Today I stumbled on this image  ...

Working into the night - I saw this gentleman through the open doorway of his tiny office. Something about the office and the ledger he was writing in reminded me of my dad, a long time ago,  in another era. I interrupted him, briefly, to mention my association and he very generously gave me this image. There is lots there for me: the very full pen jar, the smoke and ashtray, the client files, the law books, the little shrine and of course the clock. I found him not far from the boat bridge in Kolkata that I posted 2 days ago. People can be so generous in indulging our photography can't they. 

Incidentally this is shot at 8000iso on my Pentax 645z. The files are a real joy to work on.

boat bridge at night - for a small fee, you can cross the boat bridge and wind your way to another part of this great city. I have added a new gallery of Kolkata images on my website. Here is the link - http://robertvankoesveld.com/gallery/kolkata/. Certainly keen to head back here soon.
