Two Surprising Delights

I stood in amazement in our Kitchen last evening, and gazed to the West! Wow, I saw the sunset. I think it may be the first time, I saw a sunset from within our house. There are houses west of us, and a good part of the town. Somehow with the change of seasons, the sunset was lined up, so I could see it from the kitchen, looking through the dining room window. Included in the photo would be the iconic town clock of the town square, and a rickshaw, an iconic figure of Bangladesh, where we spent 8.5 years of our lives. I suspect that last sentence, was a “run-on sentence!”

The second delight was to see two Carolina Wrens at our window feeder at the same time. This photo was taken on our clothes line pole, at some other time.

This is a view of our window feeder, with a house finch peeking around the side, to get a better view of the photographer!

Street-side oil service for the rickshaws!

I miss Bangladesh.   As I am uploading this, these ladies are chatting with each other on their mobiles! 🙂   Bear with me, if I have uploaded it before! It might just have been put on Facebook.

This was one of my photos that was exhibited at Kalpana Boarding for the TTL-BIF7 Photo Exhibition.  The exhibition had two venues this year, including Drik Gallery in Dhanmondi.

I actually took this photo while riding a Rickshaw on Asad Avenue in Mohammadpur, Dhaka, Bangladesh.  I have had tea with the gentleman on the left, and he has even given me free rickshaw rides.

During the Holy Month of Ramadan most tea stalls and restaurants hang tarps for privacy for those that need to eat and drink. Rickshaw Wallahs work hard and need their energy, and there are people of other religions that do not fast during this time.

Dhaka Rickshaw Fiesta Week 2014 started of with two races.  It was a fun event.  No I didn’t pull a rickshaw!  The relay had 21 rickshaws and 84 rickshaw pullers.
