My last post featured lots of close-up portraits and detail shots. These wider-angle pictures have more context and, I hope, give some flavour of everyday life on the streets of Yangon.

    your images are just beautiful ,they represent the culture and daily life of people so well. Some of them reminded me so much of my recent trip to Indian, as you could see on my posts.

    I love how everything is done out in the open. You do such a great job of capturing the daily life of the people.

      Yep, that’s one of the great things about south-east Asia for a photographer – so much of everyday life takes place out of doors.

      Thanks, Mitchell – I’ll see what I can do! I have made a couple of self-published books through blurb, and may well do one on Myanmar at some point in the future.
