Photographer's Note

Inspired by all the beautiful shots from many great photographers and friends here on TE, I’m posting this scanned image from my trip to Myanmar 9-10 years ago.

When I arrived Bagan in the afternoon, it was raining so hard I could barely see anything beyond a few yards, so on the next morning while it was still cloudy but no rain I couldn’t wait to get out there trying to see as much as possible in case it started raining again. On our way, we encountered this little novice on his way to the temple. He is very shy, yet very eager to meet and practice his English. He smiled and said “Hello” “What is your name?” and “Where are you from?” just a few basic words and no more. I wanted to take his photo as he walked away. He must know that I would try to photograph him. He turned around to look back and gave me the knowing but most natural smile. He is such a sweet little guy, and it was such an enchanting encounter.

Bagan, also spelled Pagan, on the banks of the Ayerwaddy River, is home to the largest area of Buddhist temples, pagodas, stupas and ruins in the world – many dating to the 11th and 12th centuries. The shape and construction of each building is highly significant in Buddhism with each component part taking on spiritual meaning.
