A simple daily life situation in a Myanmar kitchen
one feels like we're just with her, about to help her prepare the diner!
Have a nice WE
all the best

Another very good portrait, of both the woman and the life she leads. Captured with your usual attention to detail, rich colour and natural, spontaneous aspect. Quite intimate really, almost sublime, the way we seem to catch her unawares as she concentrates on her food preparation, her well-practised hand moving quickly.

I'm trying to figure out what was on the menu that day. Omelettes for sure, and there must have been rice somewhere, maybe in that large pan with the lid. Her kitchen looks as congested as mine, but still quite different. There's a lot of interesting things to watch in this picture and the good light helps me to take a long look.

Hi my dear Caleb
Sorry for my late reaction as always.
Very impressive and tasteful shot via perfect slow shutter speed! Clear, sharp and nice color tone presentation is marvelous as usual.
Thanks for sharing with your finest work and have a good Saturday,
Takero from sunny but cold Tokyo.

Hi Caleb, great shot, very much in your style, with lots of surrounding detail. Egg and rice Kalaw fashion sounds good. Cheers, Steve

Markets can be great places to get interesting pictures and you have taken a good one here. It all looks quite disorganised with cooking pots, eggs and other items filling her stall but I expect the food was good! A great composition with very well handled light and sharpness.

A very beautiful daily scene in your Kalaw! Great soft natural light. Very well framed in this semi-organized but I think efficient kitchen. A very pleasant memory indeed. In Laos at the moment, warm regards,

Guess there's nothing missing in this kitchen:)!And that's right, we really have the feeling we are there. A perfect Burmese scene! I really like the composition and the details - so much to see here!
