Laying Out the Lines, Donkey Point, Kalpitiya
Kitesurfers pace out and lay down their flying lines for takeoff, at Kalpitiya, on the west coast of Sri Lanka. Shot on assignment for Serendib magazine, as part of my photo story, Wind Riders, which ran in the September 2017 issue.

Next to him stands his own, well-used “geta bera”, a “dawula”, and the unfinished bodies of several “tablas”. Shot for my photo story, “A Beat of the Ages”, which appeared in the December 2016 issue of “Serendib” magazine. •600D+EFS18-200/3.5-5.6@35mm,1/500,f/4,ISO100 #travelphoto #portraitphoto #drummer #srilankaTEATIME ON 2ND CROSS STREET -- A tiny tea kiosk in the Old Colombo district of Pettah, Sri Lanka.

Built around 1200, this spur castle was plundered and sacked several times during the occupation of the Rheinland by French Revolutionary troops, and finally almost completely destroyed by fire in 1799. Restoration began in 1971, and included the repair and roofing of the bergfried — the tower on the right of the picture. A bergfried is similar to a keep in an English castle, or a donjon in a French one, but unlike the latter two, is not meant for permanent habitation, but functions as a defensive position — a free-standing fighting tower — during an enemy assault. Today, the restored portions of Burg Lichtenberg house a museum, restaurant, youth hostel, and a church that still holds services for the nearby parish of Thallichtenberg.
