Pettah is Colombo's oldest and largest market. This legendary economic centre started off as a sugar warehouse during the British colonial era. Each street is unique in what it offers; multiple, bazaar style shops sell absolutely anything and everything. The fruit vendors provide the freshest produce in town, and who doesn't love a fresh pineapple🍍 . . . . . #pineapple #street #market #vendor #fresh #pettah #market #busy #hustle #old #oldest #largest #economic #centre #colonial #british #sugar #warehouse #gridstyle #colombo #fruit #produce #srilanka #streetphotography #shotonpixel

Bridgetown Buildings. There are some fascinating buildings around this historic country town that current occupiers have done a great job in giving a contemporary appeal but thankfully the old charm remains. #samsung #samsungs8 #bridgetown #westernaustralia #southwestwesternaustralia #perthisokay #countrylife #countryaustralia #buildings #australia #colonial #takemetoaustralia #discoveraustralia

Another shot of the Basílica y Convento de Santo Domingo, in Lima, Perú. We were on our way to the tower but I had to stop first to take this shot. From here you can see what is the poorest side of Lima. Lima is a city of contrasts, there are hills for the rich but most hills are where the poor live, in Spanish they call the hills ‘cerros’, the one you see here is the Cerro San Cristóbal. Lima has areas that could compete with upper class suburbs of the developed world but at the same time a great portion of hard working people live in very precarious conditions, in areas that are absent in most first world countries (Australia, New Zealander, European countries, Canada, USA, etc,) it is the reality of most- not all- Latin American countries but Peru’s middle class is growing so there is always hope and there are confident and friendly smiles 😊😊😊 I hope you like this shot as much as I do. #lima #limaperu #perutrip #perutravel #unknownperspectives #cerrosancristobal #exploretocreate #lensculture #santodomingo #churchesoftheworld #convent #urbanphotography #historicalcentre #centrohistorico #urbanlandscape #urbanlandscapes #visualarchitects #iphonephoto #street_vision #citypicz #killeverygram #ig_peru #campanario #tower #thereishope #igcity #citywalk #lensculture #colonial #colonialarchitecture

*Door Embellishments* I found these door-related paraphernalia among toys and stone show-pieces for sale on the beach in Kovalam, Kerala. There must be something, I thought..ah, antique value! Look at that patina! I did some reading later. Cultural identities of the people in a place are hidden in the tiniest of details in daily objects. Design aesthetics of the home entrance is perhaps subconsciously telling about the quality of the living space and its inhabitants inside. Ornate door knockers and handles have always been popular in England. Though it was the Romans who spread the use of door knockers to the farthest reaches of their empire adopting the erstwhile Greek custom. Renaissance craftsmen saw the artistic possibilities beyond mere utility. Skilled blacksmiths of Italy Germany and England have forged doorway art into their indigenous cultural heritage over centuries. It's plainly evident in their grand architecture: the large and fanciful door knockers that adorn many of the old wooden doors. A popular saying in Spain in the 1500's was “A tal casa tal aldaba,” or “To each house its door knocker” --implying that the quality of the door knocker was demonstrative of the resident’s social status and profession on their front door: since designs have concrete meanings. I came to learn how purposeful designs on small objects around and outside the house may reflect the daily lives of people in keeping with their cultural values. In Iran, cast-iron door knockers are still seen from 300 years ago, most of them designed specifically for each gender to produce a distinctive sound, enabling the inhabitants to identify whether their visitor is male or female. They call men’s door-knockers “hammers” while women’s door-knockers are called “rings"-- reminiscent of the 'linga' and 'yoni' iconography described in sacred Hindu texts. Speaking of which, in ancient Kerala the Manichithrathazhu lock is famous for its unique style of traditional metal engraving artwork seen on ornate doors of king's palaces, aristocratic mansions and of course, temples. #history #til #doorknockers #kovalam #design #colonial #antique #art #symbolism #architecture #metalengraving

PC: @the_confusedmillennial | Almost all of the old buildings in central Kolkata are in some state of ruin. But the ones which are being maintained are being "Indianized". The intricate colonial details are being cemented over with simple shapes and patterns all the while being painted over in bright colors. Its good to see them being maintained but perhaps there should be a bit more oversight. What do you guys think? #kolkata #history #calcutta #architecture #colonial

Among the most infamous of the penal colonies of Van Diemen’s Land (modern Tasmania, Australia), was the Macquarie Harbour Penal Station. Located on Sarah Island on the west coast of Tasmania, the station was extremely isolated from the rest of the colony, hundreds of kilometres from the nearest settlement, surrounded by treacherous seas and the unforgiving wilderness of the West Coast Range (the mountains that separate the west coast from the rest of the island.) Sarah Island itself was just twenty acres in area. ⠀ ⠀ The station was founded in 1822 and it quickly gained a reputation for the harshness of life there. It was intended as a place of banishment within the Australian colonies. It’s residents were the worst of the convicts, including those who had committed crimes after arriving in the colonies and those who had escaped from other penal settlements. ⠀ ⠀ Since the island was too small to produce food, the station was reliant upon resupply by sea. Malnutrition was rife among the convicts, which inevitably led to outbreaks of dysentery and other diseases, made worse by the severe overcrowding of the island. In addition to terrible living conditions, the convicts were treated harshly by their overseers. Solitary confinement to the nearby Grummet Island was common, as was the liberal use of the ‘Macquarie Cat’, a cat-o-nine tails whip that reputed to be heavier and larger than that that was used elsewhere. In the first seven years of settlement, an average of 6560 lashes per year were inflicted on just 175 men. However, this did little to deter convicts from attempting to escape. Indeed, it seems that it only inflamed the desperation to get off the island. According to some reports, in 1824 a convict murdered one of his fellow prisoners in order to be executed rather than continue life on the island. ⠀ ⠀ The station was closed in 1833 after just 11 years in operation. Those convicts that remained were transferred to the newly established penal station at Port Arthur, which soon gained its own reputation for harshness.

Story link in bio👆 India’s founding fathers, from Mahatma Gandhi to Jawaharlal Nehru, are known the world over for fighting British Colonialism and winning freedom for India. But not every Indian thinks like that. Right wing Hindu Sena declared that Queen Victoria was the first soldier to free India in 1857 from ‘tyranny’ of the Islamic rule. #trtworld #politics #british #hindu #muslim #india #delhi #indiafreedomstruggle #colonial #colonialism #storiesofindia #indiaphotostory #photojournalism #indianpolitics #vandemataram #bharatmatakijay

"Deme un Buenos días y dos sonrisas para llevar" Sentando en una calle y viendo a la gente pasar de algo me pude percatar Presencié algo muy poderoso pero a la vez puro y sincero Vi como es la sonrisa de cada persona, aquella que nos caracteriza La que se nos entrega desde que a este mundo llegamos y causa tantas reacciones Desde la sonrisa de un niño cuando su pelota logra patear y también la de su abuelito al verlo jugar Hasta la que un buen amanecer te da ... Me doy cuenta que una sonrisa tiene tanto poder que puede cambiar tu día y tú vida , porque cada vez que alguien ríe es como si te diera más vida y el jardín de tu alma comenzara a florecer #antigua
