Galle fort.

The Amangalla sits inside the walls of the fort town of Galle. A UNESCO world heritage site, the small town is permeated with a strong reminder of its long history everywhere you look. Some of the things that caught my eye...



A roughly made statue of school girls inside a school courtyard.




Curvilinear windows...












Some great graphics and shapes found on the architecture within the town.




My favourite was The Galle Library - a small cosy house with lots of wooden framed windows.


I liked that in keeping with the town's architecture, the YWCA sign was made from wood.


I don't know the significance of this but it looks like a large melon with a human face painted on, and strung up above a door. Would have been good to find out what it's for!


A street sign.


Arrow over the indicating lights on a truck.


A laid back lifestyle - a shop owner's pet dog snoozing on the shop floor.
