FOLLOW TRAFFIC RULES

The lettering at the bottom of the sign reads:

KOLKATA TRAFFIC POLICE
faster, safer, friendlier

 

Writing on a Wall

Night shot with my Nikon D300 / 14 mm at 3200 ISO. No flash. Have never got the hang of flash photography.

The SUCI(C) refers to:

 SOCIALIST UNITY CENTRE OF INDIA (COMMUNIST)

I’d be interested in knowing what the other writing says.

Escorting Durga

I left Kolkata on Immersion Day. These six photos show a statue of Durga as she is escorted to a river for immersion. I took them from the cab as I was heading to the airport.

I’ve got a couple photos left that I think are okay, and want to add some commentary at some point, but I’m going to end my regular posts about the week I spent in Kolkata for awhile.

The next post will have something to do about my home in Beijing.
