Inwa (or Ava) is an important place to visit, not very far from Mandalay. Ancient capital of Myanmar from the 14th till the 19th century, it still has many monuments that witness that period. When I got to this area a couple of kids noticed I had candies on my bag. I gave them a couple and, as if by miracle, when I reached another monastery, a few kilometres away, the kids there knew already I was the one who had candies - news run really fast in Burma - so my stock just finished in Innwa. This girl was not much interested in candies. She was really fascinated by cameras and she wanted to take photos. I found her photos when I was watching the photos of Kakku and I couldn't resist posting one. This is one of those photos I'm going to print and take with me next time I go to Myanmar.

A very adorable photo from Ava, with spot on focus. She has a sweet and shy smile. I enjoyed your story too. I googled Ava and I suspect that I saw it from the ferry boat at least, and passed under the bridge. Fine work, warm regards,

this is a good portrait of this lovely girl.Mayve her face is a little bit under exposed,but we can see very weel her shy expression and her nice smile.I like the color of her dress ,her flower in her hair,and the architecture of the stone behind her give a beautiful background.

Oi a Ana,
Todas as crianças do mundo sabem nos mover. É difícil de recusar um presente de doces, quando eles são perguntados assim graciosamente. Fotografia muito bonita em recompensa. Um retrato natural de qualidade excelente. Bravo. Dia bom.

un ritratto molto tenero e dolce, che lascia intravvedere l'espressione un po' imbarazzata della bambina, ma allo stesso tempo genuino un po' naif.
Un caro saluto

Lovely girl and capture with a shy half smile
Like the flower in her head
When traveling I always enjoy to have children round me,
as in your history they are very good and apart for asking for sweets , they would be good to show interesting places
TFS and greetings

Um sorriso sincero, embora um pouco assustada ... Um belo retrato com detalhes e fidelidade, com uma textura muito bem captada, e com a simplicidade das imagens bonitas ...

I love this cutie in her natural state, the simplicity of composition and soft colours. There is good interaction too, sharp focus while fully aware that she is being photographed. You have captured her happiness very well indeed, innocence of child is a joy to behold before adulthood catches up. Lovely overall soft feeling of this happy picture. Well done, great work. Congrats

I thank you for the very nice story. The story being told well is as captivating as the photo. The girl on the photo is full of cute expression on her face. It's very nice that she was interested in your camera. She may be a future member of TE. Now I say what I say half jokingly, but we'd never know. The portrait taken face to face at a close distance has a very sweet reality. It must have been a very pleasant encounter, I imagine.
With my warm regards,
Have a nice week ahead, Ana

Ciao dear Ana,
this little smile is also a true witness of life and hope in Burma, hope that this wonderful Country will soon be out of its isolation. You have captured a beautiful image, not only for the pleasant smile of a child, but also for the excellent photo quality. Brava!
Ciao, have a nice Thursday!

lindo retrato, toda a beleza e a a pureza da infância está aqui retratada. muito boa aluz, as cores, a nitidez e tudo mais. bem feito, natural.. infelizmente no marrocos não podia fazer muitas fotos com pessoas, eles detestam fotos e quando eu as roubava eles estavam sempre com um olho furioso na câmera..

Olá, amiga Anabela,
la sonrisa y la mirada de esta niña son adorables, tienen un toque de picardía y de complicidad realmente fantásticos.
Ella parecía muy interesada en tu trabajo fotográfico, y te ofreció una imagen vital, fresca y espontánea, muy atractiva a la vista.
Es una foto magnífica.
