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.
I really like the composition of this shot… especially the person looking into the camera.
At almost every major street crossing I came to during my walks around Kolkata, there were loudspeakers blaring music. I assume it had something to do with Durga Puja.
Here is a thirty-second recording that I made at one such crossing.
