Photographer's Note

One of my stops in any new location is the local market where the large numbers of ordinary people going about their day, a colourful place loaded with real people full of interesting characters who are friendly, informative and a vibrant place with endless photo subjects. This is also the ideal place to really capture the atmosphere of an urban community, a good place to orient myself and try the best shots.

From this point of view gives me the opportunity to exploit the colours and identical shapes of the pots on display. Shutter is released when transaction takes place, the telling moment and the effect that I wanted, an unobtrusive candid fly-on-the-wall image that catches people going about their business seemingly unaware of my camera. Of course approaching unfamiliar cultures require trust, gut, repectful and be senstive to local customs.

This very mundane eveyday scene was taken at Mandalay market just across the moat of Mandalay Fort (former Fort Dufferin), a colorful popular market and a landmark for its sheer size and diverse collections of merchandise. Incredibly warm and friendly place I truly love.
