Email from Calcutta

A friend writes from the road:

This city is SO strange and powerful.

I took this shot outside of a once-magnificent British manse, now in the most glorious state of decay and new life.

Nearby was this lonely street child. For 10 minutes I lingered, captivated by the building and this tree growing thru the enduring remains of an
ornate wall and down to the grimy sidewalk.

For the entire time I was there,
he kept his head in his hands, barely moving.
