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.

It was a great moment for me when I heard that one of my photos was accepted for TTL’s BIF5(Bangladesh in Frames5) photo exhibition at Drik Gallery in Dhanmondi, Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Here is a previous post of the photo that was accepted:       https://marlandphotos.com/2012/06/17/boli-khela-wrestling/

Day 244

TTLER ADDA  AT THE DHANMONDI RABINDRA SHOROBOR.  I found this definition for an adda:  A common place where close friends hangout. Its usually close to the college they attend and generally convenient for the rest of the boys to get there.
Its usually a bakery, Coffee day, restaurant or small shops run by frustrated people or nice people.

For this adda we just hung around the outside ampitheater and chatted, ate chanachur and drank ginger tea.  We sometimes have photo addas where we critique each others photos.

Day 133

THIS IS TAJIA (Salma Sultana Tajia). She is marrying Arif (Ariful H Bhuiyan) and I will be attending their wedding reception tomorrow.  They are both photographers with TTL (Bangladesh Through the Lens) photo club.  This was taken at Shudipto’s (another TTLer) wedding reception last Sunday!

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO MY MOTHER and all the other great Mother’s who check out this site!

Tonight I attended a wedding of Shudipto, a TTL club photographer.  He had invited all the TTLr’s from Dhaka to his wedding reception.

Of course then you would see action like this wouldn’t you, with both the bride and groom behind the lens?  It was a fun evening with great Bengali food!  All the typical wedding food including curried chicken, fish and beef.  They also served my favorite drink, borhani!
