A smiling buddha hidden inside a pagoda around Inle lake.
In the morning, monks walk back to the Shwezigon pagoda after begging.
Portrait of the headmaster of the Shwe Yan Pyay monastery.
Low light portrait of young novice monks at the Shwe Yan Pyay Monastery. Low light portraiture is something I learnt with professional photographer Aung Pyae Soe and I think it looks awesome! It's difficult to find the same lighting conditions to practise in HK though...
The pagodas in Bagan are not just beautiful from the outside, the light getting in through the openings in the wall is equally fascinating when seen from the inside.
The Mingun temple is a huge building which construction is incomplete. The originally intended height was 3 times the current one. The cracks are the results of an earthquake that hit Myanmar in 1839.
The openings in that pagoda in Bagan created a great lighting for this shot. Thanks, AP Soe for the great setup in this wonderful location! Note that this pic makes a great background picture for a mobile phone 😉
