"The Golden Land"

Myanmar, all I can say is wow! A country filled with so much culture, smiling faces, and golden Pagodas everywhere (yes everywhere!). As someone who loves to document everyday life with a camera, I felt so alive creatively. I often found myself people watching and composing scenes in my head before pressing the shutter button of my camera. Below are photos I took around Yangon to Inle Lake (located in the Shan State). I left this country energized with a feeling to travel more to experience everyday life in new places. There is still so much more I want to explore here and I'm looking forward to the day I return.
