Photographer's Note

A scene from the fishing village of Negombo, on Sri Lanka's west coast.

"Bustling Negombo town is a historically interesting place, strongly influenced by the Catholic Church... Each day, fisherman take their oruvas (outrigger canoes) and go out in search of the fish for which Negombo is well known...Fish auctions on the beach and sales at the fish market near the fort are common - the shark catch is brought in to the beach in the early afternoon." (Lonely Planet)
