batticaloa fishermen or the rewards of procrastination

finding a time to go for a photowalk to the beach at sunrise was difficult during the last mission – jet lag, early appointments, changes of the venue and so on. in the end, i had to take the last morning – and ended up without visible sunrise due to the clouds.

  1. Superb set of portrait. The main you, the one that appears on top, is truly remarkable. Great colors and expression.
