Fort Kochi – Part 1 {2018}

If someone ever asks me which is that one place I’d love to visit again and again, I wouldn’t have to even think a second before answering – it’s Fort Kochi. To me, Fort Kochi was never about the Chinese fishing nets or the beach. It was always the streets and the dilapidated buildings and the overall old-world charm that used to pull me to this place. I have been photographing Fort Kochi from roughly around 2010 to document the changes happening there. This will be a multi-part series comprising of photographs taken between 2010 and 2018. Starting off with a few from 2018 (split into two parts).

    1. Thank you Lisa! Every time I visit Fort Kochi and every time I take a photo of something there, my thoughts reflect along the lines of what you’ve written — the stories and the secrets the place holds. 🙂

  2. Absolutely wonderful photos! I too loved Fort Kochi, and the building in your third image, seen from the water, is one that drew me too. But you’ve obviously spent far more time exploring than we were able to do and you have some fantastic shots to show for it. I like your editing style too – the graininess and the square crops work very effectively on these old buildings.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words Sarah! Really appreciate it! And very glad to meet someone here in WordPress who has been to Fort Kochi! 🙂

      Yes, what you said is correct. I’ve spent a lot of time in Fort Kochi. In fact, I’ve been there multiple times. It’s one of my fav places. The last I went to Fort Kochi was in 2019 and I did one final round of photographing Fort Kochi, but I did that with my Fuji Instax Square film camera. Those photos are not yet uploaded. Will be doing that soon. 🙂
