Chinese Temple Style In Yangon

Myanmar, like most Asian countries, has a Chinese presence. Dotted around the city are a few temples catering to this minority.

The front courtyard of the Kheng Hock Keong temple.

Fancy courtyards and altar spaces.

Temples are a great place for perpetual socializing.

Offering details. Don't forget to stuff an icon with a little Lipo.

Yangon, Overexposed

Grey skies turn white when you overexpose an image. Place something in the foreground for a new, eerie look.

Rain Delay In Yangon

It's hot in the tropics and the rain can sweep through at any time. What to do when you're selling stuff in the street? Have some plastic covering ready.

When the rains come, out comes the plastic.

Everything gets covered, from chips to underwear.

Time to protect the sewing machine, creating a bit of a ghost effect.

Papers and clothes, all wrapped up.

Street side business services can't stop, they only get wrapped.

If you don't have enough plastic for your wares, at least cover yourself. Grains, protected.

Maybe it's your lucky day, getting your purchase safely dry in a Lucky Bag.
