Street photography in Kolkata using mobile
The flight to Kolkatta was late. We were suppose to reah by 10am but we reached Kolkatta only by noon. Matty wanted to stay some where in Chowrangee . After some search we got a hotel for descent price. Matty wanted to taste at Peter Cat. But it was crowded and had a very long waiting list.We had lunh in a nearby chineese resturant. I was in full enthu but Matty was tired. He slept and I escaped to have a look around. Well my mobile was very helpful. I used my mobile camera (Update: Its Sony Ericsson K750i mobile) to capture the moments on the street. I had time until MK reaches Kolkatta. I had minimum of three hours for loafing around.
The famous Peter Cat hotel. We had to struggle to get a table out there. The doorman lacked decency and didn’t know how to handle customers.At last we got a table there the next day. I will write about that.
Walking on the streets of Kolkatta is not easy. The streets are very crowded. Building and roads are very old. You can see this yellow old ambassodor cars every where. They are like our auto rickshwas.
By this time I was pretty tired. I came back to hotel but Matty was all ready to explore. We left to have some evening tea. MK had sent me an SMS that his flight will be late by an hour.
After few more hours and few calls, MK reached the hotel. I was totally tired. I had almost covered around 6-8 km by that time. I dont remember what we did for the dinner. But I got a very good sleep that night.
