Susegad: Goa

3

Goa has been known to be a party town, with beaches and lovely places to hang about and have fun. Goa has a classic small town feel, which says "susegad".

I had never been to Goa.Yes, almost everyone who’s lived in India has been to Goa at least once. Even my parents have been to Goa. But me, I have never been there.

And why so? Well I generally don’t like the sea. It makes the sand get in my shoes, it makes my jeans wet, and the salt water corrodes my cameras. I live in Bombay and I’ve seen the sea, it’s dirty, and you can’t walk on the beach. It’s so crowded that there is not a moment of peace.

Although hesitant, I finally did go to Goa for a friend’s wedding. I couldn’t say no. But Goa is totally not what I imagined it to be. The place is clean and green. It’s full of 100 year-old houses, beautiful churches, small restaurants with great seafood, and a mood of laziness which I’ve come to love.

One of the great things that happened was that we went in the summertime so it was off season. This pretty much made sure that we didn’t go with many tourists. The sun was nice and mild enough to shoot at 100 ISO slide with no harsh shadows.

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
