Weekly photo challenge: Family

1 Dec

I love the traffic in Saigon. 14 lanes of motorbikes weaving in, out and around each other. The families on the bikes are incredible. I caught this family just down from Reunification Palace where the Vietnam War ended in 1975.

Weekly photo contest: Wonder

14 Nov
Standing Buddha with Rainbow, Monywa, Burma

Modern wonder and natural wonder

For this week’s photo contest “Wonder” I submit this photo of the Standing Buddha, Monywa, Myanmar.

It stands at 423 feet and is a landmark for miles around.

Just as I was taking the shot, a rainbow came out though I didn’t search for the pot of gold being sure that it had been used up in the gleaming gold of the Buddha.

It was a moment both of “Modern Wonder”, this huge construction of a deity in a remote part of Myanmar when in other parts of the world religious sites are being changed into blocks of flats, restaurants and discos and the “Natural Wonder” of the rainbow.
