Driving from Pyin Oo Lwin down to Mandalay late one afternoon, the rays of the setting sun were lighting up parts of trees and catching a lot of dust that filled the air. I started to hold my camera up to the car window and take pictures of the people we were passing.
I don’t have a good camera, and so there is a lag between the time when you press the button and when the picture is actually taken. Therefore, it was difficult to take pictures from a moving car of people we were passing with such a camera. But I saw that as part of the “art” of the moment.
In any case, here are some of the pictures from that day. I call them “Burma in Blur,” and that is how I tend to see much of Southeast Asia – as if everything is in a blur, with people always on the move.
