This shot was taken in the Alipore zoo, Kolkata, varieties of animals were there but this blue and yellow macaw got my attention. These birds are so beautiful and so big in size also, what a wonderful bird it is.
I was just roaming around the streets of Kumartuli, Kolkata, which is known to have old buildings and home of many people. At that moment i found this old man at his home doing something, the simplicity of that people, place and the surroundings attracted me very much to take the shot.
