Goa – in black and white

After finishing a few colour rolls, I decided to experiment with a black and white one while in Palolem, Goa.

Here are some of the snapshots.

This one is my favourite! I wanted to bundle all of them into my rucksack and bring them home to Kit Kit!

The colour photographs will take a while longer, as the scans I got from GK Vale are absolutely crappy. So I will have to get all three rolls from the Dandeli-Goa trip rescanned. This is the second time this has happened. I think because of the load, their quality is becoming worse these days. But that’s really no excuse for grainy, low quality scans. Hopefully, I shall manage to get them all done by tomorrow.


  1. Les photos sont vraiment jolies! (Et les chiens aussi!)

    – I also saw the Tempo1 pic…am currently doing Diplome at AF-Pune, so couldn’t resist saying that in French;-)

  2. Moody mornings, shivering puppies, warm cuppas, soothing surf, slippery sand, fantabulous feni … aah Goa ! Decent b/w snaps capturing the feel of good ole Goa … post the color ones soon …

  3. nice pics AB. Your obsession with Kit Kit is still at its peak! I have 2 cats now and one of them even had babies. havent got any pics though.

    Anyway my next roll will be a black and white for sure.

  5. hey….I agree that GK Vale sucks these days…happened to me too πŸ™ do ya know of any other place where I can take good scans (in bangalore ofcourse :))

  6. Geetanjali, Merci beaucoup! Diplome… wow! I am not sure I will be able to survive that long πŸ™‚

    LL: Black and white do have a special charm…

    Vegas: Your wish has been granted πŸ™‚

    Wildflower: Hmmm.. obsession with Kit Kit is a ‘forever thing!’

    Kalyan: Thanks. You did have a chance πŸ™‚

    Pratap: Try Prabhu’s on Brigade Road. They do decent scans and prints. The last few prints I took from them from slides was pretty good.

    Hi Anita,

    I was googling “GK Vale” and this page was the fourth one returned. It is amazing and interesting how search engines connect things…

    Thanks for the info on scans… GK Vale does a lousy job of scanning in spite of clear, repeated instructions…

    Good for me and bad for “GK Vale” that googling it returns this page!!!
