In the Shade of History

Colombo National Museum #15 by Son of the Morning Light on 500px.com

The trees of Colombo are gigantic and ancient, many over a century old, planted next to quieter narrower avenues that have become the bustling thoroughfares of today. A fair number have fallen to storms, urban development, and the broadening of the city streets, but the trees in the grounds of the Colombo national Museum — most likely predating the building’s inauguration of 1877 — stand as they were intended, each one a haven of shade from the tropical sun, giving visitors to the museum a place to catch a moment of reflection after their tour of history. Shot on assignment for Serendib magazine, as part of my photo story on the museum, Katu Ge, which ran in the October 2017 issue.
