I was in Cochin, Kerela for three days recently. Spent a day around Ernakulum shooting in and around the spice market and along the boardwalk. Also took a boat tour for the experience. The next two days were spent in Fort Cochin (I will post the Fort Cochin images in my next post).
Cochin is a much smaller town than Mumbai but still not so small that there is a dearth of stuff happening. In fact I quite enjoyed shooting on the streets here because the people were really laid back and were not at all threatened by my camera (tiny as it was). Not one person stopped me from taking their picture and not a single cop questioned my intentions. It was a really relaxed session of street photography.
The first image I made was by intentional luck. My lens fogged up when I stepped out of the air-conditioned hotel into the humid street. I was about to wipe it when I got the idea to take a shot first. I was quite pleased with my cleverness:)
Nothing there buddy!
I saw this relaxing bear from accross the road and walked up to see if there was an image I could make. Couldn’t believe my luck when I saw the sleeping man!
Boarded our boat here. That is not our boat.
For a second I thought she had lost her head
Fishermen. I gorged on some amazing seafood in Cochin!
Will post the Fort Cochin images soon. Cheers!
