There’s always a lot happening on the streets in Yangon. It’s not as crowded or hectic as Hanoi, where I used to live, and the pace of life is slower and less intense, but much of everyday life happens outside. In these pictures, I’ve tried to capture some of those everyday moments that make up the life of a city. I’ve realised that I tend to focus on single people in my pictures, but most of these photographs are about little interactions or shared moments.

having visited both Hanoi and Yangon your photos bring back many happy memories of exploring off the beaten track
fantastic images!! The one with the soccer players….looks like one of them has a melon on his head :-). Great colors captured throughout.
Jon, very nice. I do like the interaction with more that one person. The barber shop with the reflection was particularly nice. The two woman sharing a moment is also wonderful because of their colorful dresses and open friendliness. My top choice is the woman sitting cross legged writing something. There is a real intimacy there. The toe sticking out is a nice addition. Well done as always.
Great images all around, but I really like the 2nd one. That juxtaposition is funny to me.
Way too many lovely images, Jon! I especially like the barber shop images, the first and second images, the two women looking at a smartphone, and the third up from the bottom – with two men and the poster behind them – perfect!
