Rickshaw Puller, Calcutta, India
Rickshaw Puller, Calcutta, India

A Rickshaw puller in Calcutta, India, is about to start his grueling day delivering his fares or their parcels through Kolkattaโ€™s narrow, winding, traffic-choked streets. This is one in a series of images of mine previously published in Seeing in Sixes 2017.

As always, thanks for visiting. Be well. Stay safe

  1. Dear Ron,
    great picture with fine grey tones. Really different to most pictures of India that are in colour.
    It’s so typical for India. I was travelling through India for a bit more than a year but 30 years ago.
    Thanks for sharing. Keep well

    1. Thank you. I spent a little extra time processing this one and am pleased with the results. I miss India and would love to return- though that seems doubtful.

  2. A truly great photo. You captured the fatalism of this man – and India – so well. Just look at those eyes.

    1. Thanks. Indians seem better than most Westerners at accepting their lot in life and I mean that in a positive way.
