Kochi Markets, Kerala

Ben has been spending a lot of time in Kochi for work, and I love to tag along anywhere I can. I’ve been down to check out the Kochi markets three times in the last couple months and have decided the people there are the most photographic of anywhere I’ve traveled! Shame I don’t have one of those fancy cameras (not that I’d know how to use it) because I’m sure these would look even better.

Because they see tourists, but not to the extent of Goa, locals were more open to having their photos taken. In Goa the kids are so over posing for pictures, but kids in Kochi LOVE cheesing it up for a click. Most of these were taken around Fort Kochi, MG road, Marine Drive, and the Kochi Yacht Club. Enjoy!

      Do you mean the big tubs of oil? I think it’s banana or potato chips, I can’t remember!

    Lovely pics! I love candid pictures best–little, illusive moments that just get captured, and give you a taste of what was being felt.

      Me too.. I like taking photos of people but get nervous that they’ll yell at me so always ask first but then it spoils the moment because they act different once they know I’ll take a pic
