Revisiting Yangon Photos


I need to build a habit of rating my photos. Most of my photos are not rated, I just process which ever that I feel like processing and letting it be. The problem with this is that, I don’t have a view of what I have done right or wrong, and especially when I come and revisit the images, I would not know which one are the ones that I have “picked” versus “rejected”.

Yangon trip was one of the first full trip that I diligently accepted the photos. The reason being is that I had so many “usable” street shots that I needed to pick and choose which ones that I wanted to use. I really need to go back to Yangon. Really love the country. A lot of places to visit and shoot. In fact, maybe in one of my short trip in August, I pop over to Myanmar. Likely to go to Bagan to shoot some great photos up there.

Picture above is one of the photos that I have not chosen (I think). After revisiting the album, I saw something that I think can be used. In fact, in my usual days in street shoot, this could probably be one of the better ones!

Photo above is another nice photo of the Bogsuke Market. A whole bunch of sellers congregating talking about their daily lives!

I thought both photo were great, and worthy to be published here. I do want to shoot and blog more, so let’s see.

Another view of Shwedagon Pagoda


Thought of sharing another view of Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon. It is a pretty but I do need to revisit this place. The scaffolding is distracting the pagoda. It looks OK from far, but from near – hmmm.

This was the original post that I shared earlier:


Other shots of the Pagoda is as follows:


The shot above is long exposure to remove the crowd. 125 seconds exposure. Some post processing is required as the dreamy look is not something that I was looking for. In addition to that, I do see some patches which I have no idea why. It doesn’t impact a lot of my photos so I will leave it for now.


A photo of an old lady lighting up the candle surrounding the pagoda.

Not my usual shot, but I thought I should share. Night views should not be with empty skies!



Bogyoke Aung San Market


Bogyoke Aung San Market is a famous market (filled with tourist of course) in Yangon. Based on wikipedia:

Bogyoke Aung San Market is a major bazaar located in Pabedan township in central Yangon, Myanmar. Known for its colonial architecture and inner cobblestone streets, the market is a major tourist destination, dominated by antique, Burmese handicraft and jewellery shops, art galleries, and clothing store

Following are some of my photos (also available in the video).
