Checkmate, by Sanak Roy Choudhury

In a cloudy afternoon, I ventured out in the city of Joy – Kolkata with my DSLR with the hope to get some interesting frames. My destination ended at the Nakhoda Masjid, which is the principal mosque of Kolkata, India. It is located at the Chitpur area of the Burrabazar business district in Central Kolkata, at the intersection of Zakariya Street and Rabindra Sarani. I chose to shoot some unique frames rather than concentrating on the magnificient contemporary architecture. The prayer arena provided me with this spectacular visual conformity and I freezed the moment in no times as I did not want the sleeping man to be awake!
