OWPC – Exposure

Here is my entry to this weeks One Word Photo ChallengeExposure.

These are photographs taken in various temples in Myanmar. The first image is the interior of a massive temple bell from the inside. Two other photographs show recent discoveries when layers of plaster were meticulously stripped down, revealing ancient natural pigment drawings beneath.

I feel that these photos depict the passage of time through exposure to the elements.

OWPC – Escape

This week’s prompt is escape and it brought to mind my recent trip to Myanmar (Burma) which was an escape not only geographically but also in time. Wonderful country, fantastic people, all smiles.

I was lucky to be on a small boat near the bridge  – and supplied with champagne while waiting for the sunset. It was magical.

The U Bein Bridge is a crossing that spans the Taungthaman Lake near Amarapura in Myanmar. The 1.2-kilometre (0.75 mi) bridge was built around 1850 and is believed to be the oldest and longest teakwood bridge in the world. (Wikipedia)

OWPC – Elephant

This post marks my return to posting. I’ve just come back from Myanmar where I had the opportunity of doing a river cruise down the Irrawaddy. It was unforgettable and awesome. One of the best vacations I’ve had these past few years (and I’ve been lucky to do a lot!)

This week’s One Word Photo Challenge is Elephant and here is my take. The photo was taken at a zoo on the island of Java a few years back.

It’s really great to be back home!
