This summer, when I was in Kolkata I came across calcuttawalks – a company which organises walks to explore the various parts of the city. Even though I am a Kolkata girl, the city always has lanes and alleys to explore which I wanted to capture. Armed with my camera and my curiosity, I ventured out with my husband and a fellow photographer Anirban Dutta to explore the Flower Market, Hoogly Bridge and Kumartoulli (a place that needs a separate post).
Swarmed with stalls showcasing different varieties of flowers matched by the energy of around 2000 sellers, the Flower Market at Mullick Ghat in Kolkata boasts of 125 years of heritage and stands as the largest Flower Market in Eastern India.
We started at 7 in the morning when the markets were waking up and coming alive. It was a hot and humid morning but little mattered for my lenses which were taken over by the flavour of the surrounding.
