I am writing a new post after very long time. May be after many months. Yes, I want to share my experience I got in my journey of life, as a photographer, as a human being.

As the title says this post is about the Vintage Car Rally organised by The Statesman happens in Kolkata every year in January. I visited this rally last year on 2013 for the very first time. I was really very much excited about this, not only because of photography but also getting a chance to see those vintage classic cars. I was awestruck by the presence of innumerous photographers of Kolkata. However I managed to get some frames for me. Here is a photograph from last year vintage car rally.

So this year I wanted not to repeat my frames. In this one year, I tried to develop myself as a better person, better photographer. I learned new things, learned from my mistake.

The Statesman Vintage & Classic Car Rally, 2013

Like every year The Statesman organized The Vintage & Classic Car Rally. The event took place at Fort William, Kolkata. It was my first time to this event. I woke up early at 5:30 am and went for it. The event was said to be started around 7:00 am.

You need pass to enter this event, although the passes were free and those were available at The Statesman office, Esplanade. When I entered, I was puzzled by seeing so many photographers with thier big lenses and camera. I hardly found any car without any photographer. I paused for a while, took a look all around and finally took out my point & shoot. It was hard to find a frame without any photographer. I intended to take close up shots.

The cars were classic. They were so colorful, vibrant. The owners of the cars came dressed up in vintage fashion. It was a wonderful experience for me. I am sharing some photographs I took that day.
