Yangon & on
I’ve had this post – and a couple of others – on the backburner for a while. I haven’t posted them because, while I’m fairly happy with the pictures, I’ve been stuck for something to write to accompany them. And I still am. But I don’t want this blog to completely fade away, so I’ve decided to stop trying to write something insightful about Yangon, and just throw this post out there and hope that the photographs speak for themselves. So here are some more pictures of Yangon. I hope you like them.

Love these, the photos speak for themselves. I sort of feel like you’re allowing me (the viewer) to come up with my own captions and backstories. Thanks for sharing.
Mingalaba – great photos as always Jon!
It’s always a real pleasure to see your work, so I’m glad you went ahead and posted these. So many ordinary moments that are extraordinary to me, by virtue of taking place in an environment so different from mine. The first scene not only has amazing color, but sets it all out for me to see – the cook, the customer, the food…I enjoy seeing images like the 3rd, the 7th and the 7th up from the bottom, they round it out for me. You have an eye for repeating patterns too – the banana seller, wow, all those great little curves. I like the carver very much, and his work. And the man with his phone, sitting with legs crossed and sandals off – that rough background, his graceful position – it’s a beauty! I hope all is well with you!
