Regards, Danos Hello my dear friend Boa Kristiansson and have a nice time you said that you chose an old picture from Calcutta but I love shots of this kind bringing memories from the past a usual scenery from the daily life very exotic and beautiful in your eyes welldone and wellseen regards Costantino Hej Boa, Det r alltid lika verraskande att se dig tillbaka hr. Har du inte varit ute och rest de senaste veckorna? Du har fngat en ganska typisk Calcuttavy, s typisk att den r nstan omjlig att identifiera. Det r inte direkt vackert, nd ger bilden ett visst sug att komma tillbaka dit en gng till fr gatulivets och trngselns och atmosfrens skull.A beautiful view on the confusion of Calcutta 25 years ago,maybe now isn't better in the streets...ehehe..excellent work,you scan very well the old kodachrome,i like it! WArm regrads MAlgo Hi Boa, It is 'Bentinck Street' near Esplanade. Excellent presentation of the bustling street life in an Indian metropolis.

Even I was surprised a bit because the area has changed a bit in looks.Have a nice day and thanks, Luciano Hello Boa, Like Gert, you show us archive exotic photo.
