old dhaka architecture

Elegance is not a word people commonly use to describe old Dhaka. But check this gorgeous old thing. I snapped this shot in december of 2006 and I made a mental note that if it was ever to come on the market….

I just walked in through the gate and started snapping away. The darwan had no problems with it. And after a few minutes the owner came out and greeted me. We had a pleasant chit-chat and I went on my way. In Gulshan, they would have set the dogs on me. Thats the difference.
