Captured this old VW turning a corner in Kandy, Sri Lanka. Lucky moment where it just came into view as my camera was in hand! The city of Kandy is a bustling place located in the centre of Sri Lanka, not too far from the tea plantations in the higher hills. Its an evergreen part of the world with a cooler climate due to it’s elevation and is surrounded by higher mountains and incredible scenery.
