Two Young Women in a Kopi Kadé (b/w)

Two black-and-white shots of the scene I posted yesterday. A kopi kadé is Sinhalese for a small roadside coffee shack where coffee and tea are brewed over open wood fires. The walls are often made of kadjan (woven palm fronds), as is the roof, or “wattle-and-daub” (clay pressed into a wooden frame and baked in the sun). The woman on the right is holding a pittu bamboo, which is used to steam an Indian food made of flour and coconut. Shot at Space Turn Studios, Bokundara, Sri Lanka, in March 2015, with a Canon 600D and EF-S 18-200mm lens, at 24mm, 1/80, f/4, and ISO 800.
