Just back from an amazing trip to the beautiful Island of Sri Lanka.  Although I just went for a holiday.  To my surprise and delight, it was a wonderful place for street photography.  The place is full of great locations and the people are very friendly and don't seem to have a problem with being photographed.  Here are a few shots that I took in 15 minutes at Galle Railway Station as the 10.55 to Colombo was waiting to depart

Gorgeous! I like how the subjects are all beautifully framed within the windows of the train. The windows further help bring the people into focus.

Hi Phillip! I love these photos! What an inspired collection of portraits--sounds like you really enjoyed Sri Lanka. How much time did you get to spend there? I would love to visit there someday soon. Any places/things in Sri Lanka I need to visit?

I spent a week there and visited Nuara Elia, Kandy and Galle all of which were smashing. I was there for a week just at the end of last month. People, food, wildlife architecture and cimate are all amazing. The train series was shot in 12 minutes with a 10 rupee platform ticket along with anither 16. The response to them has been really encouraging and so I think I will put some more up this evening. Thank you very much for your interest and encouragement. Very much appreciated! :-)
