Kolkata Life

While I was in Kolkata, India this past January things became a tad bit chilly. The winter months are normally dry compared to the rest of the year, less humid, and a little bit cooler. But for several days it dropped down to the 60s and that was something people were just not used to. This man was sitting in a market selling his goods, but was trying to stay warm.

I am out of town the rest of the week in Salt Lake City for a conference so I may not respond to comments for a bit.

Excellent portrait, Charles. Love the detail on his covering - it's really beautiful. It provides a lovely contrast against the fading, peeling blue wall behind him.
