Kolkataaaa a culture of white and red sarees. Kolkata a place of historic monuments. Kolkata a place known for his CuisineKolkata a place famous for his Streets. One who are interested in STREET PHOTOGRAPHY, or one who want to became a Professional Street Photographer, then I think they should visit the Kolkata. Its summer time and if you are planning a trip for photography of streets than I think KOLKATA is best place.

 
Recently my trip to West Bengal with my Families, especially in Kolkata I came across to Hot Streets of Howrah, and I saw some amazing photos opportunities. It was 40*C in Kolkata, hot like the desert. One can't leave without the AC.  We booked Air Conditioner rooms, and buses to watch some historic places. In such hot conditions the people of Kolkata were also restless. There are lots of drama and action going through the streets from morning till evening. With my visit to the hot streets I would like you to give some of my highlights of Kolkata.
 
As our bus stopped for first place at Jain temple. I saw a men and a child following his dad for purchase of some grocery. Both of them wearing only Towel and Shorts and rest of the body was open. The only reason was the Humidity over there. Jain Temple, it was a beautiful temple build with marble outside and interior full of mirrors. One can click photos from outside the temple, but photography was restricted inside. This temple was big, and having buildings near by with great interior.

Finally we reached the iconic bridge! There we had a pause for Nimbu Pani as the heat was getting unbearable. I took a few pics but wasn't satisfied, the silver bridge was stunning and my pictures weren't doing it justice.
