Captured in Kandy, Sri Lanka. A city built up in the hills, in the centre of the island. This lone property stood on the side of the mountains with nothing at all around it.

We had just driven to and climbed up a large Buddah statue to get a good look at the rest of the city below. This view was around the back and I preferred the isolation of this one house, to the bustle of the city.
