Pictured here is a location in the town of Jalpaiguri, West Bengal, India, known as Jubilee Park. It is by the side of the river Teesta which runs along the outskirts of the town. In fact the road in the photo is a part of the embankment. It is a relaxed little place (no amusement facilities) with the usual greenery that pervades the town of Jalpaiguri and all of North Bengal. If you visit here in the early morning / evening, you can get some lovely views of the Teesta. Situated about a mile away from the location of my last post, one can take an early morning walk along the embankment or hire a cycle rickshaw, of which, I have posted a picture as WORKSHOP.

A pleasant relaxed scene to be observed in this nicely balanced composition. Lots going on to retain the interest, but certainly not overly busy. I like the soft light and colours. Good light management.

This certainly looks like a very relaxed and pleasant place. There is not much to disturb the goats (?) resting on the road. Some people are engaged in a quiet conversation, others are just sitting idly enjoying the cooler temperature. They are well protected from the sun by the dense trees that have created a natural roof. This is a well exposed photo with very nice colours, mainly various tones of green, and some well matching yellow areas.

an effective presentation of this alley of Jubilee Park, it looks luscious and the trees are extremely tall. You chose a good perspective and included much information in a quiet way. You kept a discreet distance from the people, who look a little bored, perhaps. The natural colours and the atmosphere are very relaxing. I like very much the workshop picture, its composition and colours, as well as the play of light juxtaposed to the melancholic mood. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Une très belle scène de la vie quotidienne de cet endroit. On dirait que la vie se passe au ralenti avec ces animaux qui dorment tout en profitant de l'ombre.

Hello Satya, Interesting picture, with many smaller scenes. Nice relaxed atmosphere but there are only men resting, women are probably busy working or at home. I like these goats lying on the road, it makes me missing India with all animals on the roads.
Nice also Workshop photo, I wouldn't like to be lazy sitting and someone working hard to move around. But on the other hand, it is the way of earning some money for living.

An interesting narrative to accompany this image, great way and pleasure to ride through surrounded by good saturation in the greens and colour shades make this an eye catching shot. I love those lush trees!!! on both flanks, a beautifully composed shot with the pov stretching into far end where people add the visual interest. Well done, TFS

People chill out in that tree filled park of Jaipalguri Sathya, tek trees are planted on the right side of the picture, goats, an ice cream seller and fellows with their motorbike are the main elements I note, all the best, regards
