The Alternate Route

Pedestrian Walkway by Son of the Morning Light on 500px.com

“It’s almost like history took an alternate route somewhere in the early 20th century… As I walk into the Maradana Railway Station nearly forty years later, not much has changed. Dark iron arches into the tin roof over the platforms, and the wooden stairs sag with the weight of a century, a million footfalls, and tens of thousands of rush hours.”

Original pedestrian walkway at the Maradana Railway Station, in Colombo. Shot on assignment for Serendib, the inflight magazine of SriLankan Airlines. My photo-story, A Visit to the Maradana Railway Station, runs in the June 2017 issue.
