Street shave – Kolkata, India

Street shave - Kolkata, India

My flickr contact Maciej Dakowicz has reposted his very first image from India with this caption:

Exactly 10 years ago I landed in India for the first time. In Kolkata. I flew in there from Hong Kong, where I lived at that time. These were very early days of my photography. The trip did not end well – instead of planned 40 days I spent there only two weeks as my camera bag with ALL important stuff was stolen on the train from Varanasi to Agra.

This is the first picture from that trip that I posted online from an Internet cafe in Kolkata. The caption says: “My first post from India. From a different world. I am taking lots of pictures, but it is not that easy as I thought – too much of everything everywhere.”
