Yangon / Myanmar
Take a short walk through the historic streets of Yangon, formerly known as Rangoon as named by the British. Modern times are coming to Myanmar, slowly. Life is changing and many of the old relics from colonial past are slated for an update. For now the city still holds it's charm, and photographic appeal.
If you want to read about why I began travelling to Myanmar with photo tours, please follow this link to the story of Uttama, a monk I met while wandering the golden shrines of Shwe Dagon Pagoda. I met him several months before Aung San Suu Kyi announced a new policy towards to tourism and inviting the outside world to see what was happening in Myanmar.
These images were taken during the 2013-14 Myanmar Photo Tour, shot with a Nikon Df with a 50mm f/1.8 and 24mm f/1.4.
