Aerial View of Kolkata

Soumadip Das


This picture has been clicked at Maniktala Crossing, Kolkata from the terrace of a five storey building. This building is situated just opposite to the clock tower. This picture was taken when the tram stopped midway due to some technical faults and the vehicles were passing adjacent to the tram and their movements ended up in a serpentine pattern. This is a long exposure photography with the shutter speed of 2 sec.

Device used : Nikon D7000 and Tokina 11-16 f2.8 lens.

The Photograph has been taken from an Old Building situated in the Bara Bazar area of Kolkata. At the Dusk hour, the City is Blazing with the Golden Light of the Sun and Through my lense I could Frame almost Half part of the City along with its Rich Heritage. The 2nd Hoogly Bridge, Armenian Church, the High Court, Eden gardens, the Famous building 42 and many others. I Just Love My City and Try framing it in most unique Way. I used my Nikon D3100 for taking this picture. Apperture was 7 and Shutter speed was 260.

Krishanu Chnada


Hello,I am Krishanu. I started photography nearly 5-6 years ago. Always tried to capture our city through my eyes. That’s why I am more into cityscapes. I do wedding photography professionally, so I always wanted try to break the orthodox method and keen to create more innovative contents.That’s why I planned to buy a drone.but their is a big concern about permission and budget. Finally I able to buy a drone and I bought a tiny drone to explore the world in a new way. Met some awesome drone operators who guided me. I took this shoot from ‘Maidan’. One of our colleague works at bengali film industry. He have drone licence and he took the permission beforehand. So we flew nearly about 5-10 min in air. It was about 310 meters high. This photo was captured by DJI Inspire. I took this shot in around 4-5 p.m.

This image was photographed from a high riser in Central Kolkata. It was a clear sky day which is rarely found in Kolkata due to high pollution.The Blue sky, the greeneries and the different colors of the house was very captivating for me to photograph it.

Sayan Raha


I have clicked this picture during Holi from the roof top of Nandaram Market , Kolkata .





I clicked that picture from the terrace of 6 floored building in Bally with my dad’s smartphone (Lenovo Vibe K5 plus). The picture is like a month old. I took it when I was visiting the new home of my mom’s friend with my family.


Sayantani Basu


This picture was taken from Nandaram Market, Howrah. I took it from an office floor in 12th floor, as due to some governmental issue the photographers without any proper permission were prohibited to go to the rooftop.

I used Nikon D5200 and 18-55mm in this shot.

Some pictures have a price tag associated with them. This picture is one of them for me. My immense desire to see Calcutta from top resulted in clicking this picture. Although this is a newly built bridge but it has a special place in the heart of every Calcuttan adding more flavours to skyline of this city. I was lucky that day to get an access to a rooftop near Maidan which fulfilled the cause for me. Really it’s needless to say that the charm this city casts will make anyone fall in love with Calcutta no matter what. City of Joy for a reason. I clicked it using Nikon D3300.

  1. The photos are amazing esp. the first one by Soumadip. The yellows and oranges add a touch of magic to the scene.
