I have spent many hours lately editing some of the images that I took in Myanmar earlier this year. In the main I concentrated on portraiture. This is what I love doing and it’s a joy to photograph in a country where the people don’t view cameras with deep suspicion.
We visited Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay, Hsipau, Inle and Moulmain on a hectic trip, trying to do and see as much as possible. It was exhausting but I wouldn’t have done it any other way. Finally I’ve started to sort out and edit some of the 5000 images that I took. The shots in this blog are all ‘people pictures’: a young mother with her yawning baby, children, Buddhist novitiates, schoolchildren and people working in markets and in the fields. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves, except to say that I’ve converted them all to monochrome and added a mild sepia tint which I feel suits them.
I hope that you agree. Please keep reading, tell others about my blog and website and please let me have your comments.
