p.1 #1 · Vizhinjam Fishing Village - travel photo from India


On the morning of 29th of December 2012 I visited a little village just south of Kovalam, Kerala India. It is called Vizhinjam and life takes place in and around a fishing harbour. Vizhinjam seemed like a self-containing mechanism, despite the very basic livestyle lived here. It is located a maximum of 10 minutes by taxi south of the tourist spot in Kovalam, the Lighthouse Beach. And as such it is a huge contrast to the clean beach, the hotels etc. on Lighthouse Beach. Vizhinjam is a “real” village.

I have tried to give an honest portrait of this little village with kind, but poor and hardworking people. The boats had already landed after fishing during the night. Nets where fixed. Boats was maintained. Some of the fishermen relaxed. The women sold the fish at the local market place. And the very small village even had a small churh with a church square surrounded by religious flags. As always in India the colours where great. But, I was mainly caught by the authenticy and roughness found here.

All photos taken with Fuji X-Pro1 and Fujinon 35mm/f1:4.

Kind regards

Interesting photos from an interesting place. Too many "details" in #4 for me, but I guess you are showing life as it happens.

Thanks boxman.

Sorry for the details. I know what you mean, and initially I had my reservations with publishing the image. But since I'm trying to show what I saw, and not to please I decided to do so.

Actually I walked right in front of him, while he was sitting there. He was talking in his cellphone, and didn't seem to take notice of me at all. I know I would have

Thanks again, Morten
