I like taking photos of people.  In two weeks I managed to shoot quite a few quick portraits. 
 I find the people of Sri Lanka to be beautiful,  dignified, engaging and soft spoken .    Whenever I got a chance, I talked to people and it was always rewarding.   The Sri Lankans I met radiate contentment, even happiness even though I know that many of them lack the material wealth we take for granted. 

 The children of the poorest seem the most charming of all.   As you can see, I couldn't resist them and will post more of their images later.
