Horse and Buggy : This shot was taken in the Maidan area of Central Calcutta where a buggy or Baggi as it is called in Hindi is mostly used for evening joyrides by local families and tourists.In this shot you can see a young couple bargaining for the fare of the joyride as passersby give a fleeting glance to their negotiations.The Baggies or buggy are mostly decorated but the horses are not all that well fed.

Interesting and colourful daily life scene. I'd quite like a ride in one of those myself. A good way to see the city and savour the atmosphere.

A real interesting and a good subject chosen here..nicely framed, composed and taken with the characters in action..(IMHO) a bit of over exposed at areas, which I think could have managed in PP.

Really a different and well decorated carriage, must be really plesant to ride through the city in one like that! Very good colors! A picture full of life! Beautiful job!

Carriole des plus originale mais doit ajouter considérablement au poids que la pauvre bête doit tirer pour gagner sa pitance. L'ensemble manque un brin de netteté.

Carriage and horse are very nice ornated.
The visitors are with the man busy for the price for a trip!.
These colours are pleasant to look at.
All it seem so soft with a nice presentation.
Excellent composition, nice captured.
Very well done, TFS.

A very lively Daily-Life shot of Kolkata. Excellent colours and clarity. Nice presentation with a cute note.
ourania (21482) 2013-09-03 10:34
a very interesting daily life scene, the tight framing is effective and makes the composition and the details significant and attractive. I had never seen a baggy before, it's really spectacular but the horse, as you mentioned in your note, looks underfed and unhappy. I'm intrigued by the scene with the people, it's enticing to make up a story with what we get from them. You also give us an interesting idea of the background thanks to your apt management of depth and light. I like how the bright colours stand out and how well they happen to match. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

An original and attractive carriage, I can imagine newlyweds in this decorative vehicle, very well captured, beautiful shot

Great scene, precisely with the interaction of the pele around the horse, and the fine decoration. It's funny, we have such horse and carts in Dublin too,but they look considerably different. Amazing that trekearth teaches me how our worlds are all the same, yet so very different. Great shot, thanks.
All the best

At first view I was sure it e¿was Mumbay
And you are right, quite a sad difference , the lights on the vehicle and the what looks a tired horse
Well captured street scene

Fun time in the country of fantasy colors and beautiful myths...as you can see I'm looking at your picture and I'm daydreaming big time... a beautiful, colorful picture that brings joy to look at...you are a very sweet man Mr. Fabbs!!
all the best to you
mcmtanyel (7335) 2013-09-03 16:46
This is a very elaborate buggy and the horse is dressed very smart. Tight and effective framing.
PS. I wonder whatever happened to Omid. His last post said he was having Internet problems.
danos (80288) 2013-09-03 23:08
nice the snapshot with the well decorated carriage to be bargaining from the young couple to take a joyride in the streets of the city.
A buggy that never seen especially with its decorated wheels.

Good reportage photo.
Strong light and colors.
mohammad_H (7942) 2013-09-04 0:55
Beautiful view of an everyday scene, transportation and entertainment, but with a little care and maintenance of horses fed, clean streets and clean can be found
ikeharel (47000) 2013-09-04 2:34
Not just a Baggi, Farhat, but one that wait for the princess to ride with...
The horse looks fit, and the surrounding in green gave a fine ambiance.
Lovely taken photo.
mirosu (10208) 2013-09-04 4:12
Nice colourful street snapshot. First I was thinking it a festival carriage. Must be fun to have a joyride on the town streets. Well done. Greetings, Miro.

Another fairy tale subject from India. That cart looks more like a big creamy cake than a real cart. The whole scene is so wonderfully colorful and gay.
have a great day
ChrisJ (92128) 2013-09-06 6:23
A superb daily life scene of the horse and decorated cart with good sharpness and punchy contrast. I might have tried reducing the highlights using levels in photoshop. This would give more detail in the slightly oe highlights. Strong warm cold colour contrasts between the red and blue colors. Tfs!

ciao caro amico farhat un altra bellissima immagine di vita quotidiana a Calcutta
bellissimo questo carro con cavallo ben decorato
ottimi i tuoi colori e sempre dei bellissimi documenti dall'india complimenti e buona domenica
eldancer1 (22445) 2013-09-10 7:43
Such an ornate buggy one would feel like royalty riding in it. Nicely captured with good lighting and good details. Well done, tfs.
s_lush (16128) 2013-09-14 23:11
In this colorful and high-quality picture, you have captured a very good example of aesthetic decoration of a buggy. An excellent transportation and daily-life reportage photo from such an interesting country, as India!
clic (13006) 2013-09-16 6:49
The buggy appears as a royal carriage so I suggest the driver should wear an official costume, as a consequence he could ask for higher fares!
claudeD (28273) 2013-09-18 2:05
very fine and interesting picture showing much details .Very good composition and good clarity. Very well done.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
batalay (33891) 2013-09-18 3:56
A highly unusual creation. It looks very heavy, but perhaps there is more paper mache than plaster and mortar here. The horse, indeed, does not look very happy to pull the buggy.
kato (10593) 2013-09-18 21:02
You're capturing well this spectacle by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see the horse carriage which carried out the showy ornament and rich greenery in back. It's interesting in buddhism sculpture given to the wheel and the stand, too. And, you catch well their negosiation of rider and tourists.
mjw364 (6282) 2013-09-24 0:42
Very colourful scene - the reds are so vivid - maybe a little too bright to my eyes but that does not detract from the overall composition of the image which offers a fascinating insight into the culture of the Indian tourist looking for a joy ride. It is the same in places such as Blackpool in the UK.
aloyho (6798) 2013-10-05 1:05
An interesting street scene with the inclusion of the beautifully decorated carriage. The bargaining going on created a good atmosphere and a good story for this shot. Exposure can be a bit tricky when there is a lot of white around. I like how the people in this shot brought out the essence of life here.
photoray (7952) 2013-10-10 11:42
Interesting horse drawn carriage especially for the elaborate decorations. In our West, the buggys were simple wood with little decoration, yet many people still enjoy a buggy ride for the place and scenery.
