PhotoStory 0002: Buddha in Ananda Temple in Bagan (Myanmar/Burma)

Buddha in Ananda Temple in Bagan (Myanmar/Burma)

Photo taken 2006-12-01, (dec 1st) at Ananda Temple in Bagan, ??? State, Myanmar (Burma)

Bagan is a historic town in Myanmar (Burma) witch is famous for a overwhelming number of temples, stupas and other religious buildings from the past. Most are buddist of course, as Myanmar is a country very dominated by buddist religion. I think there was only one hindu temple among the others. Ananda Temple is one of the most impressive of the many thousands of structures… The guides told me there was over 4400 stuctures in/around Bagan, without me counting/controlling those figures…

The photo is of one of 4 golden, standing buddhas in Ananda Temple, probably the eastern buddha of the four. I took the photo without flash and keept it still by holding it still on the floor, - trying to get both the buddha and the 2 women praying & putting sacrifice in front of it…

It was very peaceful in the temples, and my guide drove me around between the sites in a horsewagon,- whitch was the normal type of taxi/transportation in Bagan.

PhotoStory 0001: Young (leg-rowing) fisherman at the Inle Lake

Young (leg-rowing) fisherman at the Inle Lake

photostory0001-burma-inlelake-fisherman.JPG




Photo taken 2006-12-03, (dec 3rd) at the , Shan State, Myanmar (Burma)

On this day I and a fellow Australian traveller was on a boat-tour on in the Shan State in Myanmar. We paid 10 usd for a whole day of boating and sightseeing on and around the lake, - from morning till after sundown. This photo I took on the start of our way back over the lake, and I got this shot of very young leg-rowing fisherman doing his laft fishing for the day…. The Full-Moon is already up behind the young fisherman, and will within an hour be the only light for the boy in the boat. are especially famous for this special leg-rowing technique the fisherman use from their small boats - trying to get both their arms avalable for handeling the fishernets, or fisherbaskets…

The fishermen are general well aware of their attaction for the tourists, and often start padling with their legs then they see tourists are closing in on them, without demanding any money for their “modelling”.

has lots of interesting spots for tourists/travellers, and are highly recommended. Also is the nature at, and around this lake beautiful.

News: Photostories

It's said that a photo can tell you more than 1000 words, but many of my photoes will tell me a lot more than you, as there might be a story around/behind it… So I'm going to start something I will call "Photostories", where I blog around a single photo, or a series of photoes from the same place.

I plan to write a little every day I feel I have some enougth free minutes …and I plan to pick a random photo out of my “portefolio” from my travel, and write a little bit about/around it…

Also, I still have travelstories/summaries from half my trip left to write... from Malaysia, Singapore, Phillipines, Macao, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan and South Korea. I'm not sure then I get time to write those, + put out photoes from the countries, but its on my list..



Take care all of you, and enjoy the photostories, - and dont be afraid of giving any requests/ask questions... if you have any wishes ( mail to egil.viking@gmail.com )
