A Celebration - The Real Burning Man

Came across an usual Festival in Southern Myanmar. A Monk Funeral, more like a country fair. Traditional dancers, stage shows all night long, boxing matches, comedy acts, rides, novelties for sale, food, drink. It had it all including a Monks body lying in state. On the final night, in a specially built temple, the Monks body is burned.

Myanmar Trip 11

New images have been added to my main website from Myanmar Trip 11

These 2 young sisters and young man have decided to volunteer their time to help and teach these poor children. They have found the means and ways to put together this school, so these kids can get some kind of education. There is no funding or support, very few donations, but they find a way, completely on their own. Northern Myanmar (Burma).

The fascination of light - Tanzania

A big part of photography is the fascination with light. These two images were shot minutes apart. The first one in open shade at the side of a building, the next image was shot on the other side of the building with a slice of blinding sun coming through between rooftops in it's last moments. Both can interesting in their own way, the soft beauty of open shade light or the stark richness of direct sunlight.
