Galle has some quite interesting architecture gems. The majority of the older buildings- residences, warehouses and so on- are built during the Dutch colonial period. Many of these buildings are being preserved and refurbished into boutique hotels and art galleries. One of the most impressive building in the walled city that is still alive all this while is a Baroque-style mosque, Meeran Jumma Mosque. From the outside, the mosque looks just like a church. The only giveaway are the crescents atop the mosque in front instead of crosses. The mosque originating from 1750s and rebuilt in 1904 had been in continuous use. It is a white building but I reckon it looks cooler and more fun with this HDR rendition.

Nothing happens when you sit at home. I always make it a point to carry a camera with me at all times…I just shoot at what interests me at that moment. – Elliott Erwitt"
“I treat the photograph as a work of great complexity in which you can find drama. Add to that a careful composition of landscapes, live photography, the right music and interviews with people, and it becomes a style.” – Ken Burns
