Amarapura is a small town in central Burma, however it was the capital sometime in the 18th and 19th centuries. It is visited today mostly for U Bein bridge, the longest teak bridge in the world. I spent a day around Amarapura, meeting many friendly people, until I came into a teahouse, which are a common place in Myanmar to stop and drink and smoke. This old man struck up a conversation with me in his limited english, and wanted to know about my home country of Australia, as the newspaper had reported flooding in Queensland. I asked him for his portrait and he gladly accepted.

I like the composition and teh way you have got the man in the center and objects neatly displayed, a bit unusual for a natural shot but for some reasons makes it interesting.
