Bagan / Myanmar / Burma
A classic example of 13th century temple construction in Myanmar, and now a very popular destination for tourists. Inside a series of Buddha statues have been well maintained, and glisten with gold leaf. Outside the vendors work hard to pitch their trinkets to tourists.

Photography for Travellers
Ewen's guiding principles are simple...
"Go slow. Get closer. Look for the light."
"Photography is about showing other people how to see, to share the beauty of life. It's not a job, it's a lifestyle. We only get one lifetime, one chance to add some light into the world. Photography competitions are mostly silly. Cats are excellent."
