Fish Stall, Kochi Market

This is where all the previous days' food was sold.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Lucca from Cologne, Germany

I like this composition a lot, especially with the blue on the top. I'm wondering what all this food might be? I'd like to try some of it.

@Lucca: Thanks Lucca. There are some photos of some of the food in my previous days' shots. There was all kinds of fish and seafood products - seaweed, even whale.

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

A colourful stall dominated by the blue (above) so specific to Japan! ( I wonder...what are they doing with the fish that is NOT sold?!)

@Japanalia: Thanks Gabriela. I don't know, what do markets do?? There were little restaurants in the market, maybe they buy some stuff. I wonder...

GJC from Kyoto, Japan

A nicely framed shot, especially using the two people at the edges. The combination of light and dark is also effective.

@GJC: Thanks GJC!

MaryB from Staffordshire, United Kingdom

A beautiful night shot, the colours are amazing, you've really captured the atmosphere of the market.

@MaryB: Cheers Mary! (But actually this was in the morning... look out the windows at the back!)

bm from Budapest, Hungary

Nice colorful shot, I can feel the vibe and smells of the fishmarket. I notice on the top there's a billboard with a whale on it - interesting, because it links to the debate about Japan and whale hunting.

@bm: Well, bm, the stall also sells whale meat. The sign says something like "There's so much fresh food in the waters in the Tosa region" (the area where Kochi is). That includes whale...

Wolfgang Prigge from Granby, QC, Canada

Seems like an interesting place. I like the comment by bm about whale hunting. Had the chance to visit a fish market in Bizerta, Tunisia in November. If you care to have a look, here is the link. There are some more shots of the market before and after. With a slow link it might take some time to load.

@Wolfgang Prigge: Some great shots there Wolfgang - didn't know you had your own individual site! Very nice. Amazing octopus and I think the small fish are sardines?

Miroir from Paris, France

Nice composition!

@Miroir: Thanks Miroir!

Twelvebit from Victoria, United States

I love the color and density here.

@Twelvebit: Thanks Twelvebit.

yiannis krikis from thessaloniki, Greece

I agree with Lucca

Very well spotted.
