Who all do you meet at the Pettah market, one fine sunny evening?

You guys have been stuck at the Botanical Gardens for a pretty long time. I was travelling around North India ilast week and hence was unable to put up new posts. Let me take you through a stroll in the Pettah market in Colombo.

Travel tip: Just walk east from the Colombo Fort railway station and slip by into one of the lanes, and voila, there you have the Pettah market. That easy :)

The hep.


The one who is perfecting his smile.


A regular family.


Slightly pissed off family.


A weary lady.

      Thanks! Those which you see here are the ones I enjoyed, but I’m sure I saw many more which were more beautiful on the way :)

        Yes, I imagine! This type of photography is my favorite. I love how it captures so much about people…
