Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Shane Hayes

Through years of civil wars, and hardships like tsunami's, the people of Sri Lanka have maintained their unique happiness, friendliness, traditions, and culture. Amongst all the noise, excitement and colour of one of these regular celebrations, a sole smile of friendship of a beautiful Sri Lankan girl appears from amongst the group, depicting the liveliness & joy surrounding this occasion.

Location: Colombo, Sri Lanka
