Kasimedu Fishing Harbour, Royapuram

Again to the north of central Chennai, this time in the Kasimedu Fishing Harbour of Royapuram. It is early morning and already hundreds of boats have brought in their catch from the Bay of Bengal for the fish auction held each morning. The shapes and colors, the crowds and smells and energy of this place engulf the senses without pausing for considerations of like or dislike, pleasant or unpleasant: pure excitement! Still even the busiest fishmongers, cleaners and helpers seem to have both time and inclination to welcome the foreign visitors.

    Hi Goldberg,

    Loved the pix, but couldn’t find the link to tell you so there (I am
    notorious for missing the very, very obvious!

    Anyhow, kudos, you continue to be a brilliant photographer, observant
    of the everyday miracels all around you, wherever you are, home and
    abroad, expansive and detailed…

  15. I really can’t believe you! REALLY.
    I read and look at an infinitesimal part of what you send. I’d have to live a lot longer to do it justice.
    Big problem- ILOVE your photographs so I can’t detach.
    THANKS
    See you.

  16. Trudy H, founder and leader of The Weekday Cyclists, a group of bicycle enthusiasts in New York City, actually sent this to those who ride with her. Of course, I’m both delighted and embarrassed

    Weekday Cyclist, Richard Goldberg, is traveling in South India and Sri Lanka.

    His photos look like they are straight out of National Geographic. I think they are awesome and you’ll really enjoy looking at them.
