Peek - A - Boo
No - This is not the Bandra Worli Sealink bridge.
Made this photograph when i was exploring Kolkata on my own one day. The idea was to see the Princep Memorial, but i was in for a surprise when i saw the fabulous Vidyasagar Setu (which also i wanted to see) was just in the background. This bridge is popularly known as the second Hooghly Bridge. The Vidyasagar Setu is a cable stayed bridge, with a main span of a little over 457 metres, and a deck 35 metres wide. Construction started in 1978 and the bridge was finally inaguarated on the 10th of October, 1992.
Was noticing the columns of the Princep Memorial when i noticed that i could frame the bridge in the background in two columns. The result is this pseudo silhouette shot.
With the Bandra Worli Sea Link opening up operations next week, i thought of putting up this photograph.
