Photographer's Note

The giant sitting Buddha in the grounds of the Shwesandaw Pagoda, Pyay faces west. The pagoda is said to contain a couple of the Buddha's hairs, as its name means Golden Hair Relic. It is one meter taller in height than Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon.
As the sun goes down the sequins on the Buddhas robe become diamonds, one-by-one. People tell the time of day by the diamonds.
