Urban Life – Yangon

Maha Bandula, Yangon


This picture always makes me hungry. I took it from an overhead pedestrian walkway on a busy junction in downtown Yangon. This is one of those rare images where I think I like everything about it. This entire feast, better by far than what is on offer in most restaurants, was prepared on the pavement by the side of a busy road.

Urban Life – Bangkok

Central Railway Station, Bangkok


I spent a couple of hours wandering around Bangkok Railways Station taking photographs. No-one followed me around, no-one told me not to take photographs. It’s sad to think that there are fewer and fewer places like this in the world where photographers are, if not welcomed, at least accepted. Most of the platforms at the station are under a translucent canopy which does a wonderful job of softening the harsh light. I focused on the floor and waited for the cleaner to walk into the frame. It’s not perfect, but I was quite pleased with the result.
