Fishing Fort Cochin

Besides the colonial architecture, Fort Cochin's iconic image is a row of fishing nets. For good reason, as the elegant nets take on the look of sentries in the harbor and are still in use daily.

One of the fishermen, still plying the traditional trade. A great outfit - and somehow color matched to his bucket. Beautiful blue crab, ready for a loving home with a big steam pot.

Don't forget the fish. The area is also a social spot, schools of like beings found everywhere.

Seller and buyer, in a price standoff. The old woman and the sea.
