The best photography subjects aren't the prettiest looking ones. The best photography subjects are the ones with the most character. In this regard, Myanmar ranks up there among my favorites.

 

 

Shwedagon Pagoda:

Beautiful is nice, but so are dust and grime. Potholes and noise. And the sweat and the smiles of common folks coping with their daily lives.

 

 

Off to work, downtown Bago:

Places like these are fertile grounds for serendipity. And we all know that where serendipity happens, creativity sprouts.

So when you find yourself somewhere scenic and interesting, do not rest. Milk the place for all its worth. Shoot from sunup till sundown, and then shoot some more.

All images shot with a Nikon FG + 28-70mm and 19mm lenses. Films used were Agfa Apx 100 and Efke 25.

The best breakfast is a pre-dawn visit to Myanmar's majestic Shwedagon Pagoda:

That'll fire you up with inspiration and get you ready for the shooting day ahead :)

It's the eve of Hari Raya Puasa and you've got 2 hours left to enjoy the goodies at the Geylang Serai Ramadan bazar. If you haven't done so, do it! DO IT NOW!!!!
