Prayer by AndyMumford Prayer by AndyMumford
A shot of a novice monk in front of the reclining buddha at Shwesandaw Paya, Bagan.  As we entered the tiny building where the buddha is located we came across a photographer shooting this scene.  It's not a "natural" scene, as the photographer, who was shooting a book in Burma, had a guide who'd set up the scene for him, complete with local novice monks who were carefully posed and lit.

The photographer invited me to take a shot of the scene, and I was  hardly likely to decline.  I quickly stepped in, composed and measured the exposure, before taking three frames.  

It was another chance encounter in a wonderful country that left us both feeling uplifted and happy….it was a fantastic trip.

Even if set up, it's a good communication of what may be seen, experienced and the feeling of Burma. :love:
