A few more days to Myanmar!

Yes, a few more days to my Myanmar photosafari – specifically on March 12th. I reckon the participants are all set for this trip, a trip to a land that I maintain is a photographer's paradise just like Bali. Nice people, nice food, plenty of shooting opportunities and with the cool climate now, an amazing […]

Most of us have already booked our flights and arrangements are already being made to make this another special experience for participants. If you are thinking of joining us, I suggest you decide fast to avoid disappointment as I am sure the last few slots will […]

Another Myanmar photo-safari

One of the few new year resolutions I made for 2011 was to have more travels/photo-safaris and true to form I have decided to have another photo-safari to this lovely country from March 12th-17th. This time we will be going on the Yangon-Inle Lake-Mandalay-Yangon route over a 6d/5n duration. I know this is again going […]

Here are a few shots to share.

When there is Myanmar 1 there must be a Myanmar […]

Intha fishermen of Inle Lake

Inle lake is another attraction worth visiting by photographers. It is recommended to take an internal flight to Heho from Yangon (we flew from Mandalay) because apparently the roads linking these places are pretty bad. From Heho we were transported by car to Nyaungshwe where we took a fast boat ride to our hotel, Golden […]

A 24mm/f1.4 portrait

This lens is well suited for environmental portraiture. Being a wide angle lens expect it to have some distortions if you do a close up as the following portrait will show. I personally  have no problems with that as I have leant to live with some life's imperfections. 😉

This portrait is of a 70+ […]

Getting in line – a shot from the front

As mentioned the monks do move quite fast so much so that I was at the back of the line most of the time. For this shot I was informed by our guide that they will be going through this area.  I liked how the how the sunlight streamed through on the right and waited […]

Monks collecting morning alms

After our 'chasing' of the nuns for photographs it was the monks' turn the next day. (Story later) The monks were as expected much faster leaving us far behind before we knew it. Notice their bare feet.
