This wonderful capture of a man at Ravangla market, Sikkim, leaped out at us this week. It was taken by Sukanto Debnath of Hyderabad. Sukanto says “Photography is a hobby and Flickr is an addiction. It’s mostly when I go for vacations, I take photographs. And then I take photographs like crazy…almost non stop. I love Sikkim and Nepal. Every year I try to spend at least few days there. I mainly do environmental candid portraits.” Sukanto is also a talented concept artist – see his Doodles N Drawings blog.
