Faces of Myanmar

Hi there folks!

It’s been ages since I did a ‘Faces of’ post, and as I seem to have my mind presently back 12 months in time to my time in Myanmar, I thought I’d delve into my photos and see what I had from Myanmar. And it seems I have quite a few photos of people! I hope you enjoy today’s post!

The two above pictures were taken on Inle Lake, one of a fisherman who sought out the boat I was in, the second was in the afternoon and a young girl in a boat pulled up alongside to sell flowers.girls at Mandalay

    I always love your “faces” series. I’m not sure if the monks on the train are happy with having their photo taken though…
    The two photos from Inle lake fantastastic. And kids always make for the best photos, right?

  2. Wonderful pictures – there’s something about photographing local people and local life, that just beats landscapes, and gives you a better look into the culture of a country.

  3. The faces of Myanmar were, for me. some of the most interesting of any country I had been to… especially with so many of the women’s faces decorated in one way or another, either with the turmeric paste (I think?) or those neck rings…
