p class=”small lowlight”>These picture (the entire set) is shot of Second Hooghly Bridge from the Outram Ghat.
Extremely low light caused some noise in the pictures due to low exposure, which in turn is due to the unavailability of a tripod!
Yet some more hypocritical frames of my La Internazionale Series! And nothing much to say on them. Just enjoy the pictures, reflect your ideas as comments and (maybe) use them as your wallpaper!
Note that for the 2nd picture (of 2nd Hooghly Bridge,) I have used a 10 ansi 35 mm Lumen filter, which I borrowed from an uncle of mine.

And when you come ‘down’,
To my city of amorous joys.
Amidst a social chaos in a plethora of faiths,
Fantasizing and prostituting religion,
Loud vociferation of hypocrite secularism
And to sum it all: “a diverse culture!”
Amidst constituted vindictive politics
Unaccounted powers, vested by unaccounted population;
Where every ballot is a dramatized guillotine –
In the world’s most comprehensive constitution.
If you think this is somewhere in the fast lanes of Texas, I tell you, it is not. It just depends on the eyes of the beholder and the point of view.
Here are some, very few to be specific, pictures that present a truly world class look of Calcutta (Kolkata) These pictures were also taken under low-light circumstances of dusk in manual focus mode.
Light fascinates most people and even challenges some. Atop my terrace at one in the morning, you don’t get the priviledge! And when someone whispers into my ears… “Catch me if you can!” the challenge even surmounts the critical boundary of the word ‘possible.’
When light is scarce and there is none to guide you, keeping your eyes wide-open is the best solution. I guess, I had been very eloquent on the terms of this picture. If one ever gets the chance to see from where I saw, it wouldn’t be hard to notice that everything except the street was in pitch darkness. However, over-exposing the image allowed me to bring forth certain beauties that were invisible to the naked eyes.
