This is a nice picture?

Have you published this elsewhere?

no, personally I didn't published this nice picture :-) somewhere else. But I know my old Sri Lanka photos from 1976 were now discussed on LankaNewspapers community -> see here and here.

BTW, now I'm awaiting your nice pictures on Panoramio :-)

Best wishes from Germany and a happy new year 2008, Andreas

In addition: Is this you ?

Hi Andreas,

They are in fact pictures that bring wonderful memories. Thank you for publishing them Andreas.

I clicked on is this you but cannot access to that site. In this country hi5 is blocked. I am from Sri Lanka but right now I do not have pictures to publish. I hope to publish when I take them myself. Right now I am outside the country so it is not possible.

Thanks for your reply. Have a nice day and happy new year.

Hello Ruwaiz,

thanks for your kind comment and your good wishes. It seems that the person on the hi5 website isn't you - the buddy there is an approx. 16 years old boy.

Take care, Andreas

P.S.: It would be great if you could take some photos from my old photos locations to see the changes over the decades.

please publish these in flickr its better than this, it has a good collection too. The clock tower is still there but the view of the harbor is not that clear because they have built a huge wall!!!!!!!! and these type of cars could not be seen in the roads other than in a antique car exhibition

Hello Lak,

I don't know if Flickr is better than Panoramio. I guess Panoramio has a small benefit, because the pictures could be seen in Google Earth if the position is mapped. But Flickr is also a very good site.

You're right, this roundabout traffic and the clock tower is still there and yes, the type of cars changed - that's just the way it is :-))

Best wishes, Andreas
