The Ageless Hangout

Evening chit-chat, or 'adda' as it is called in Bengali, is a favourite pastime in eastern India. Every evening, people from all age groups gather under these banyan trees on the riverfront in my hometown Hooghly to sit and talk. I took this photo using my Sony CyberShot DSC W5 with a 15 second exposure. This photo is completely untouched. The street light on top left gave it the golden colour.

Thanks a lot to everyone who commented on my photos, or even stopped by for a visit. The comments have been pouring in pretty fast and I'm finding it increasingly difficult to reply to each individually. I'd rather spend that time in viewing others' photos and commenting there. But I do read each comment individually, and if you ask me something specific, I'll answer that.
