Just more wonderful compositions Joshua!
A simple tire, a smile, inquisitive eyes.....wonderful!
Dan


Dan, I really appreciate your kind compliment. I am glad you also like the additional images. Yes, a simple tire was enough to keep him happy for hours and he got his fair share of exercise, too, running up and down.

Great set of photos of Myanmar kids, Joshua. I really got a kick out of the boy who was thrilled to see his own picture on the monitor and ended up kissing it!


Thank you very much, Shirley! Yes, that boy surprised me as well. Both of his parents were there and we were laughing together. That was one of the highlights of interacting with those youngsters in Myanmar.

Amazing set of mages that truly captures the moment. Really love them all, but that expression on the boy getting his hair cut is really priceless.

The pictures are awesome, great shots. What's it like to spend a week in Myanmar?


Thank you very much, Gary! I ended up spending 9 days in Myanmar. I barely scratched the surface. I wished I could stay longer, like 2 weeks, which would be perfect for my situation. You have to fly in to Yangoon, visit the Old Bagan and Inle Lake, that’s a week and basically nothing else.

A beautiful set Joshua, your signature 3D quality with that magical proprietary lens you have. I love the relaxed contact you always establish with your subject. They are all great. I really like the capture of the boy getting the haircut and the innocence of the little girl in the yellow shirt. But they are all great.

The first two images are wonderful. It looks like you made a connection before you began shooting, and it provides a level of intimacy that really shows. Love the set.

So many nice shots. I like the composition of the first one with the postcard seller and building in the background. Kid shots are so refreshing especially when one captures their facial expressions.

Great images from one of the best Asia country to visit. I went there back in 2013, when it first opened to outsiders...now, i have heard it seems to be in turmoil. One of my images was featured in the Spain’s National Geographic magazine...

These are great, but that open air barber shop is crazy sharp! Mind if I ask which lens you used with that? Was it post processed or is the lens generally that sharp.

The whole series is great though, very nice work.

Thank you very much, Binh! I agree with you that Myanmar is one of the best Asian countries to visit. Of course, the current situations there changed that dramatically. I went there one year later than you did. Great that one of your images was used in a magazine!

Thank you very much for the double compliments, Pete! The lens used is the Sony Zeiss 55mm f/1.8 lens, barely stopped down to f/2.0. Some folks gave that lens a nickname “mini Otus” and it signifies something alright although the lens is an auto-focus lens, unlike Otus lenses. Another advantage of that lens is the diminutive size and very light in weight. The filter diameter of the lens is 49mm, to show how small that lens is. FYI, if you look at images #7 through #9, that’s the lens on the camera that little boy was holding.

That is ridiculously sharp. Thanks for the reply, maybe there will be one of these lenses in my future.

Great composition, each shot draws the viewer in for a story. Favorite of mine is #2 or #5

Excellent shots! Great to see, brings back a lot of memories for me. I was first in Burma in 2000, which I realize is two decades ago now. It was pre-digital and all I had was a Pentax K1000 and a 50mm for the entirety of my 6 weeks there. It was at the very beginning of my photography obsession and I was still learning. I went back again in 2002 for 4 weeks with a full compliment of lenses and my trusty Minolta Alpha 7...I was a lot better by then. I was still shooting film, mostly Velvia, Provia and Astia. I friend of mine had a Panasonic digicam and that was great for engaging with kids and adults alike. This motivates me to scan my shots.

A fantastic place with amazing people. It breaks my heart to see what's happening...and what has been happening for decades and decades. It was not so different 20 years ago. Sigh.
