Dhaka city is a mass of people, buildings, cars, rickshaws, food, rich, poor, noise, activities, life, love,……..all 25 million of them.

Just a little tiny bit of street photography while I am here………. There is just too much to see, too much to do 🙂

A Child on the streets asking for money and asking for food…… I was surprised that she spoke rather good english.  Street hardened and persistent, she will not go till we gave her some money.

Cannot help but to feel lucky to be born where I am……….. Are we complaining for the sake of complaining ? While we are grumbling about the sushi meals that we cannot afford, about the fact that we need to wait 5 mins for the subway, about our telephone bills while we insist on having a smartphone……. Take a small step back, broaden our views beyond the computer and 4 walls, look around, breathe and think….

Are our expectations too high now ?

Curious about things around me, interested in photography, likes to eat, read comics, cut out newspaper articles, me travel a lot, like to crack lousy jokes, likes to be alone, trying to run a mile in 20 mins, hate chill peppers, crazy for fashion, not enough money, has a Leica, like contradictions.

  1. Dhaka seems like one of the most crowded and craziest cities on Earth. However I heard that the true beauty of Bangladesh lies in the countryside, far enough from the hustle and bustle of the capital. Nice street photos you took!

    1. Thanks for the encouragement ! 🙂 The traffic is almost crazy, beats Delhi i think. i have heard about Cox’s Bazzar and the little island of St Martin, Hope to be able to visit one day !!

  2. I always feel like all Asian cities are kind of crazy in terms of traffic, but Dhaka really looks like it would beat all the others. Thanks for the awesome shots!
