A journey within!

It's like going on the journey! A lot of things go into hanging a show and preparing for an opening. On the night of the exhibit opening, we got to the gallery early to finish up a few things before anyone arrived. We noticed a lady carefully looking at each photo,...

Balloons over Bagan

Balloons over Bagan

This was one of my favorite images, our first morning in Bagan at the sunrise pagoda near the Bagan Hotel. The air was thick with smoke from the many small brush fires burned by the local farmers to get rid of small twigs and branches. It also acted as fertilizer for...

Puppets in Pagan

Puppets in Pagan

Is it Pagan or Bagan?  Many of the names were changes along with the name of the country in the late 1980's but in this post, I like the old name of Pagan that goes well with the beautiful puppets being sold in this market. Many of the place names including the...

Day laborer in Rangoon

Day laborer in Rangoon

This guy looked like he was headed to work with his axe and hammer at his side as me looked over at me in the morning light. Many day laborers could be found at construction sites and farmers markets, some of them chopping wood, breaking up rocks or bagging charcoal...

Crossing guard directing traffic?

Crossing guard directing traffic?

On the way to Mt. Popa, some of us decided to ride bikes, at least part of the 30+ kilometers from Bagan. On one of the main roads, I caught this guy almost looking like he was directing traffic. I think they were getting ready to bring lunch pails to the workers in...

Big Springs

Big Springs

This leather seat with rusty springs looked almost like the classic Beijinger I had in Beijing. But this was parked along with lots of others at a market in Bagan. We stopped here the first morning we arrived because this market only happens once every five days or...

Temple tiles

Temple tiles

In a beautifully restored temple complex in Bagan, I found these beautiful floor tiles inside one of the smaller buildings next to the main stuppa. I am not sure if the flower is a lotus but imagine some sort of buddhist elements in the tiles?  What do you think? We...
