sri lankan portraits

Generalising wildly but it is my observation that most Sinhalese Sri Lankans are blessed with amazing bone structure, fabulous smiles and perfect, clear skin.  They also love having their photograph taken, especially the kids who run after me on the lane pleading “selfie Madam!, selfie!”. That the selfie is taken on my phone and they don’t get to keep it seems of little consequence.

As a result of this, and of my blatant asking people if they mind me taking their photograph, I have a phone full of beautiful faces. Here are but a few.
