4th January 1906 witnessed the foundation of Victoria Memorial Monument in Calcutta by H.R.H. The Prince of Wales. Since its completion, Calcuttans are proud to exhibit the 64 acres of land with the building covering 338 ft by 228ft!
And, we Calcuttans never miss to capture this majestic beauty from all possible rhetrospection. Even, I thought to get merged with this cliché using my new camera. And after the marvel was achieved, I leafed through the pictures and thought… “is this Calcutta?!”
Yesterday, I was enjoying the fountain sprout of the newly constructed Elliot Park, when suddenly I got a glimpse of the Victoria Memorial. It wasn’t much in sight till I decided to put my Zoom into work! It is to be noted that all the above pictures are taken at around 5pm in the dusk’s twilight. The sky was overcast and light was a sensitive issue!
Light fascinates most people and even challenges some. Atop my terrace at one in the morning, you don’t get the priviledge! And when someone whispers into my ears… “Catch me if you can!” the challenge even surmounts the critical boundary of the word ‘possible.’
When light is scarce and there is none to guide you, keeping your eyes wide-open is the best solution. I guess, I had been very eloquent on the terms of this picture. If one ever gets the chance to see from where I saw, it wouldn’t be hard to notice that everything except the street was in pitch darkness. However, over-exposing the image allowed me to bring forth certain beauties that were invisible to the naked eyes.
As memories get refreshed, those subtle tingling sensations seem to be re-awakened into existence. Photographs are the tool to make you turn around, wait, look down and wonder “I have traveled so far in time!”
