Sweeping Color

Where: Yangon, Myanmar

 

 

While I am drawn in foreign countries to markets and street scenes off the tourist path, my fixer insisted that I see the famousĀ  Shwedagon Pagoda.

 

 

The Pagoda is fascinating and I’m glad I went, but as with iconic structures there are so many great images of the same subject all I could do is create an image that looked like everything else.

 

 

But I got super lucky when I saw this brigade of women dressed in beautiful colors pushing their brooms in unison and essentially creating one giant broom. Suffice it to say I spent most of my time following these women for the best angle.

Exorcism

Where: Yangon Myanmar

 

 

 

 

I arrived at my hotel after dark and went out shooting.

 

 

I was jet-lagged and could not quite figure out what I was looking at, but this mysterious doorway reminded me of the poster for The Exorcist.

 

 

When I returned during the day, I was a bit disappointed to learn it was the entrance to a Mens Room.

Close Shave

Where: Yangon Myanmar (Rangoon Burma)

 

 

 

 

 

An amazing subject in not so amazing light.

 

 

By converting to Black and White, I could manage the mixed Kelvin sources and high contrast, while creating a more impactful image than in color.

Steep Color

Where: Lisbon, Portugal

 

 

 

 

 

When I found this street with a funicular line I formatted a new SD card.

 

 

30 minutes later card was full and I never moved.
