Maybe a strange title but these boatmen waiting for their passengers to cross the Buriganga river in the early morning mist, reminded me of a photo I had taken several years ago of boatmen waiting with their gondolas by the Grand Canal in Venice.

Impressive stuff Elaine, which the thumbnail fails to impress. Such intense activity in this shot, i could n't imagine.
The boats are a bit unusual as seen here in India.

une très belle vue avec une petite similitude avec Venise.
C'est bien observé, l'angle de vue est bien choisi.

Indeed there is a parallel here. I would guess these men work very hard ... much can be carried in these boats .. designed for multipurpose and many passengers. I like this daily life photo for its content and story ... life in India and along India's rivers. I can see the boats "full" in the distance ... work in progress. The depth of working boats viewed all across the river is very interesting in this photo. Thanks so much for sharing this photo.

You have captured a very interesting scene by the elements it contains, as well as by the haze of the background. Peculiar clothes of the boatmen.

Not at all the strange title. Indeed, these boats looks like gondolas waiting for passenger. sitting in such a boat doesn't seem comfortable but i would be very excited to cross this busy river in it. Fantastic shot. I like the exotic atmosphere very much.
