another shot from last summer...
Galle Face Green is a promenade which stretches for half kilometre along the coast in Colombo. The promenade was initially laid out in 1859 by the British Governor of Ceylon and was also used for horse racing and as a golf course.
Today it is a popular destination for children, vendors, teenagers, lovers, kite flyers, merrymakers and all those who want to indulge in their favorite pastimes next to the sea under the open sky.
Especially on Saturday and Sunday evenings, it is a great place to go to meet people and sample some excellent local food. Then Galle Face Green is crowded with people.
This picture has the pier in the background and the beach below.

U bracht mooi de focus op dit meisjes, dit geeft een goed portret weer.
De wazige achterground zorgt dat het portret nog meer naar voor komt.
Goede foto, mooi gedaan, bedankt.
Prettige dag verder,
