    • Hi Eric,
      Thank you for touring through the blog and for your comments. I love the tree house design on your site – my son would sell his sister for that I suspect. Come back anytime!

    I linked to your site from Art Wolfe’s blog. I have been to Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam and Burma is my next SE Asia country to explore. These photos capture all I imagine when I think of the people or Burma and their culture. You’re an additional inspiration for the journey.

    Thanks, Kathie

    • Hi Kathie,

      Thanks for the checking out the Myanmar images. I used to live in Taiwan and travelled around Asia quite a bit, Myanmar is well worth visiting. The people are warm and have a pride in who they are that makes many encounters a lot of fun. There is so much to photograph there. I have been back for three months and still have a few shoots that I haven’t looked at yet. When you go, you will have a great time. I know that Gavriel Jecan is leading a tour there in November and that will be a great trip as they are timed with a couple of major festivals. I loved the time of the year I went (February) as it was the dry season and the dust in the air in many areas worked magically with the light.
