Flavours of Fort Cochin: Part-2, The Reward

It was a day, the more I tried to get close to my destination, the farther I spun away…

But, by end of the day, I was rewarded with a handful of images worth all the effort…

Please check out “Flavours of Fort Cochin:Part-1” to see what I planned for the day and where I ended up with 🙂

FortKochi-0013As I got down from the Junkar, it was 3 pm and I had a couple more hours to explore Biennale.

But, as I started walking to the exhibition halls, I got lost in the color around and started capturing the flavors of this beautiful place…

FortKochi-0019FortKochi-0026FortKochi-0021FortKochi-0022FortKochi-0027FortKochi-0028 I walked through the streets and along the walk way near the beach… and finally reached my destination.

FortKochi-0023FortKochi-0024FortKochi-0025I was really overwhelmed with the variety and quality of the art and craft being showcased.

I had used up almost all my day wandering around… But no reason to get disappointed.

I got my reward for the exploits of a tiring day, a handful of images…

FortKochi-0020But I have decided to come back with my family to explore, Bienalle, hopefully “Only Biennale”  🙂

    1. It so nice to hear that you had a great time in Cochin 🙂

      Though I am from the same state, Kerala, it’s the first time I got a chance to explore this beautiful city.

      In fact, I forgot, why I was there and started roaming around and capturing images…

      I am really glad that, you liked these images and thank you so much for your time 🙂

  1. Ha, ha ~ I love how you took your earlier post of the journey and played it out to perfection here. How I would love to visit Cochin as well of so many parts of Kerala…such life and art-of-living you have captured in your photos Sreejith. Beautiful.

    1. Now a days I really enjoy watching people in action and capturing them in my images 🙂

      This is truly an interesting place with so many people around, both locals and tourists.

      The best part is, being a tourist place, no one bothers us while taking photos and that’s quite an advantage to shoot people 🙂

      Thanks again for your continued support, Dalo 🙂

      Have a beautiful day (Hope you are in Seattle), or a beautiful day ahead(if you are in HK) 🙂


    1. Thank you so much, Sue, for your words of appreciation 🙂

      I really started enjoying street photography and there is only one trouble, some time I just get lost in a place and have to alter my original plan 🙂

  2. The last 4th pic – the buildings especially the roof very similar to our buildings too. I guess it’s the same legacy we share – British colonialism haha 🙂

  3. Gorgeous photos. I am also interested in wall art, as I see you are. Interesting to see multiple images of Che Guevara. And that one of the three musicians playing together: we’ve seen that before! And I admit, if I was standing next to the monkey, I would be looking up into the air.

    1. Kerala is so different from the rest of India.

      The Left parties have got a strong presence here and in every alternate elections, they come to power here.

      So, no wonder, Che Guevara’s images are seen here 🙂

      Yes, I have shared the wall art before and this time too I used it with a slightly different composition 🙂

      The sculpture of the monkey was there in one of the Biennale exhibition halls and I couldn’t get much information on the idea behind or the creator.

      Thank you so much for your time, Crystal. It’s always great to see you stopping by 🙂

      Have a beautiful day 🙂

    1. You could see plenty of them everywhere in India, the movie posters 🙂

      This poster is of a comedy movie in Malayalam, my mother tongue …

      The bright colors were really attractive and I thought of making my post a bit colorful 🙂

      Thank you so much for sharing your thought, Indah, have a beautiful day 🙂

  4. great scenes of the life in Cochin, Sreejith… it seems to me the place follows its own pace and you have captured it wonderfully… 🙂

    why are there so many images of Che Guevara?

    1. This is one old communist party office, and no wonder we find so many images of this revolutionary 🙂

      Kerala is quite a unique place in India, this small state on the south west of the country with a very high literacy rate and HDI.

      It’s the place, where a communist government came to power in a democratic way for the first time in the world.

      Still a very healthy balance is maintained between the left and right parties here and they come to power in alternate in terms.

      The place is kind of deserted now, but I found the colors and images very interesting 🙂

      Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts 🙂


    1. Absolutely, Sonel… I had a great day in Cochin, roaming around and taking photos 🙂

      The place is really beautiful and quite a lot of interesting characters all around 🙂

      Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing your appreciative comments 🙂

    1. The area I explored is the old colonial part of the city and the sights were really interesting, mix of old and new, everywhere 🙂

      I am so glad that you liked these images 🙂


  5. Everything I said for Part 1 holds true for the second part. 🙂
    Many thanks for supporting and commenting on my blogs. It is much appreciated. One of the pleasures of blogging is extending ourselves into other parts of the world & meeting others in another cultural milieu . Great to be connected to your window on the world. 🙂

    1. You said it 🙂

      The kind of appreciation and encouragement that you receive here is simply awesome…

      That, not only helps you as a photographer or blogger, but in your personal life as well.

      The kind of exposure to people and there by their cultures from far reaches of this globe, is simply unimaginable 🙂

      This is what keeps me going 🙂

      Thank you so much for your precious time, and kind words, it really means a lot to me 🙂

      Have a beautiful day 🙂


    1. You are spot on, Madhu 🙂

      I think ‘Che’ is more popular in Kerala than in his own native, Argentina…

      Hope you have a fairly good idea about the political landscape of Kerala, where a nice little balance between the left and right keeps the state moves forward 🙂

      Thank you so much for your thoughtful comments and have a beautiful day ahead 🙂
