photoblog image Along the Hooghly

Along the Hooghly

Some more fishermen from the Hooghly River in Kolkata. We encountered tons of boats during our boat ride, some much more sturdy and with more people than others. This one was about the simplest we saw. Behind them you can see the massive support of a bridge that passes far overhead.

magnifique composition j'aime ce décor grandiose pour une photo d'une image empreinte d'une grande sobriété.
If you wouldn't explain that the brick wall is a bridge support, this would look totally surreal, Charles.

Very good Charles, I wouldn't venture out in a little boat like this for all the tea in Kolkata.

Nice capture,.
Very good composition, geometric far as the eye meets the human group. There is recreated. A good photograph.

A very impressive structure; is it some sort of lighthouse? Fascinating marks on it, too. I would expect more of a defined line.
An excellent composition Charles ... and of course a great social observation.

..just wonderful photography! Great image and wonderful composition and feel here.
Very well composed Charles
That is a super composition.
Cool Shot! I like your cropping and composition. The sliver of water and slender boat make the bridge support seem all the more massive. Also cool how you can see the different seasonal water levels on the support
what a wonderful image - I especially like the misty background element on the left
