Second Bridge

Details: Nikon D5000, Nikkor 4-5.6G 18-55mm, F5.6, 1/4000s, ISO 800

This is one of the landmarks of Calcutta – the Second Bridge, as it is commonly called, or Vidyasagar Setu, as it is formally called. Prior to this bridge being completed in 1992, the only link between Howrah and Calcutta was the Howrah Bridge. Which is why the name “Second Bridge”, as in, second bridge across the Hooghly. My grandfather stays in Howrah – I was on my way to his house when I clicked this.
