250,000 children live on the streets of Kolkata they are among the most impoverished in the World.
Why does a country like India spend so much money on the space program and Atom Bombs ?.
The six photographers who attended this course with Nikon U.K. donated £550 each to Hope Foundation Charity set up by Maureen Forest to help the most deprived and neglected street children of Kolkata.
Scenes like this really hit home, a night shot of a family living on the street and a couple able to buy medication.
This beautiful young lady shone out from her surroundings it was a Sunday morning, I showed the image on the back of the camera to her parents (looking through the door) just wish I new how to get a large copy to them.
This man was in the Army but had to leave because he was disabled serving his country no home no help, nothing.
This is a night shot of Russa Road my Hotel was to the left of the two ladies talking.
Another lasting memory of my trip will be the colours just something I cannot explain about the Greens, Blues and Reds.
I was very pleased with this capture "Street photography at it's best"
