OK, I know some might say that's a very broad question . Anyhow here goes:

I will be in Kolkata for about 10 days in early May visiting my brother & his wife + 2 young kids. I will be staying with them. They live on US consulate compound there. So bring my D300 (that's the only body I have), 14-24, 24-70, 70-200 (F2.8) and a 50mm f.4, tripod and flash is not a problem. Each day I can take day trip in the city. My plan is to focus on street photography mostly, but would like to come home with a set of image that are coherent/coordinated.

-One project idea right now is 'rickshaw'. Kolkata is the only city that still have manually pull rickshaw.
-Another idea is: Hindi temple- Not sure what this one means yet
-of course, my 3 yrs old niece & 6 yrs old nephew will be another project

So I wonder if anyone ever photograph in Kolkata, and if you have any suggestion/advice
