I got a bunch of good shots at the 5-Day Market, and the girls stopped at 2 food stalls for snacks. Both were pretty good—fried tofu and rice and scallions at one, then Shan sticky noodles at the other.

We then went among the extensive floating gardens and houses on stilts. From then it was on to the 5-Day Market at Nampan. This was much larger than I expected, but from disembarking the boat we had to run the gauntlet of souvenir dealers.

I Caught YouI Caught YouFisherman on Inle Lake. Shan State, Myanmar (Burma). My session with the fisherman continued. He was working it for the camera, and we came up with this different view, shooting through the net. A good way to start the day.

Working the WatersWorking the WatersSunrise silhouette of traditional fisherman on Inle Lake. Shan State, Myanmar (Burma). I woke up a little before five, which was ahead of the alarm. We were going to have breakfast at 6 and our boat guy was to come by the hotel at 6:30. All went as scheduled, but we discovered that it was the brother of the boat guy, whose English wasn’t as good, who was our captain. 

 

It was chilly out on the lake, but the PFDs and blankets provided helped a lot. We found fisherman soon—I had been asked if I wanted real fIsherman or models who would want t be paid. I went for the model because that is the traditional style, even though it isn’t used so much these days. This guy was a pro and knew all the poses. Just when I thought we were set, he came up with another pose. I got front and back light.

Daybreak at Temple #761Daybreak at Temple #761Sunrise Silhouette of Temple #761. Bagan, Myanmar (Burma). I was up at 4:40, well before my 5:15 alarm. Ko Shine, our driver, was ready for me at 5:45 am as promised for another sunrise photo. This time I knew where I wanted to go, and we were able to get there directly. I set up and waited for the sky to do its thing. It did, and I got some good shots. I didn’t stay until the actual sunrise because we had a bus to catch.
