Bagan temple

This was one of my favourite temples in Bagan, Burma/Myanmar and that’s a big statement because there were so many temples that we went to look at, each and every one of them was beautiful and sacred. This was my favourite because of the entrance and it allowed you to go through tight passageways and experience a breathtaking view from the top of the temple.

Weaving

This is one of my many favourite pictures from my travels to Burma/Myanmar. I love it because it shows the sheer length of her neck, yet I hate this picture because the Long Neck Tribe women only do this to make themselves to look beautiful, which I hate because although their society is so different from ours it is yet so similar, as our society and generation alter ourselves to make other people happy and to make ourselves feel beautiful like The Long Neck Tribe. In my opinion nobody should alter themselves drastically to make themselves feel beautiful or to prove to other people they are beautiful when they already are beautiful.

Shisha

I’ve finally left school…bring on the photography at college! Now that I left school, this means I will be posting a lot more frequently. This is one of my favourite photos from my travels in Egypt back in 2012. I love this one as it gets people guessing and using their imagination to know what it is. I try my best to get the feel of the environment in all my photos because if someone isn’t there with me I would love them to feel or try and feel what I was feeling and what the environment was like.

Sawa Camp

“Where is this?” you may ask. This magnificent place is called Sawa Camp, Nuweibaa, Egypt. This is where we stayed for a few days whilst travelling around Egypt in 2012/2013. It has blue water, white sand and amazing mountains surrounding the accommodation. Its so quiet and me, my mum and my brother with a few other couples were the only ones on the beach! This is truly paradise!

Don’t hesitate to ask about any travelling enquiries.

Popcorn

I love this, it looks so retro and vintage. It was really weird because I took this in Burma and this was about the most westernised thing we saw there! We couldn’t resist but have some after all it was near the end of our journey. The amazing thing we saw was that the woman did it all fresh, there was no pre-made pots they were all done right in front of you, which is fantastic because its more fresh then when I buy popcorn from the cinema. This should make its way to the UK!

Thali

This is one of my favourite meals on Earth! Its called a thali and its a traditional Indian meal, some are served on plates or in small pots but the traditional one is served on a banana leaf. If you ever get the chance to have one of these meals take it! We first had this mouth watering encounter when in the great city of Hampi, India. The amazing thing is that we and many other people would think that travelling to India the food would be hot and spicy, it wasn’t at all, yes they had spices but I didn’t encounter one hot or spicy curry.

Market

I love this picture because I think it shows the true culture of Burma because without these people Burma wouldn’t be Burma. I also love this picture because it shows how far back and how untouched from the western society Burma is, which I admire. She uses old fashioned scales with weights to measure out how much the customer wants and she is also freshly chopping and cutting the fish right in front of you, at least you know that its all fresh!

River

Have you ever taken a little wooden boat across a small river with motor bikes on the boat? Well we did and it was a great experience. We went exploring when we hired some motor bikes in Burma, it was fantastic and crazy how you can just go roaming around and exploring the world! To get the mini ferry we had to pay this man and his mother or wife we wasn’t really sure, all the men looked really young, it was amazing how he transported us across the river by pulling a rope, it must take a lot of muscles!

Single mother

This is the little boys mother. I can’t even start to understand or imagine what its like to be a single parent, yet a single homeless parent trying to have the best future for her very young son and daughter. Im not going to lie and pretend that I know how she feels because I don’t but one thing I do know for certain is that when your happy nothing else matters! I tried to make them all happy but I cannot judge if I did that. You can just see the emotion in her face.

Palm leaf hat

This is a hat made from palm leaves. It is used mostly by locals in Burma to shield them from the sun whilst working in places such as beaches. This one was just left on the beach so i took the opportunity to take a quick snap of it as I love the way they make the hats, its very environmentally friendly, I am all for saving the environment. They use no packaging and they use renewable resources! Its truly amazing.
