As a photo enthusiast and a certified photo critic I love images that evoke an emotion and simply tell a story. This is a typical contemporary photo of rural SriLanka. I wonder if you agree with my interpretation of this picture. It was taken in the morning judging by the man rushing to catch the bus to office and the boy in school uniform at the far end with back pack. It just stopped raining resulting in misty skies and water puddle in the foreground. When I look at the pot holes it reminds me of the crumbling infrastructure still common in our villages. The dog who is rushing to nowhere, and the house wife standing by the road ready for a chat is unforgettable!
Life goes on with all its simplicity likely not too far away from a bustling metropolis with all its problems.
