Shot in the Fort, the old city of Galle, Sri Lanka.
A policeman was standing in front of a governmental building. He had a gun slung across his shoulder. Because the cease-fire with the LTTE, a militant Tamil nationalist organization was canceled in January 2008, the country was in a heightened state of alert. Because this area was an important tourism resource for Sri Lankan government, some policemen stationed.
Yet their atmosphere was not highly charged. The man was cheerful. And he started to straighten himself and look into the distance after I focused on him.
