South India 2008
Photos by Adam Jones
These photos were taken during two-and-a-half months in South India
(states of Karnataka, Goa, Tamil Nadu, and Kerala) from June to August 2008.
Gallery 4: Kochi (Cochin)
Kochi, known as Cochin during colonial times, sits on the Arabian Sea
in the tropical state of Kerala. It was variously controlled by the Portuguese, Dutch,
and British, and the old city is home to the most extensive colonial complex in all of India
(though some would say that all India still has an extensive colonial complex).
This photo and the next: Keralan countryside en route to Kochi.
Tradition and modernity in Kochi harbour.

This photo and those remaining in the gallery: around the famous "Chinese nets"
still used by fishermen on the north shore of Fort Cochin.
The pillars on either side are old boilers once used in Kochi's port.
