  1. Absolutely gorgeous photos! Janice has a few photos of monks and one of a little girl with a painted face too from her Burma trip (but your photos are nicer :-)http://www.sandinmysuitcase.com/memories-of-myanmar/. Luv your site…

    • Thank you for the lovely feedback, it’s truly appreciated! I’ll take a look at her images… Lots of little flower girls there and they’re all so impossibly cute!

  2. I’m trying to find words to tell you how impressed I am.

    Absolutely stunning pictures!

    I feel as if I was right there with you traveling 😉

    You have captured the beauty and essence of the people.

    Well done & keep up the great work!

    K.

  3. These are absolutely stunning, thought-provoking portraits. Thank you for sharing. I was pretty inspired by the disabled artist painting with his feet but the little girl waving from the boat was adorable!!

    • Thank you so much Rosemary! The disabled artist was incredibly inspiring as he was actually very good too! I’m in Ethiopia now…not sure if I’ll manage to get good shots in same way here…

  4. Wow, every single one of these photos is a reason for me to improve my own photography skills. But I really like the way you’ve captured real life and smiles. It’s lovely work and a touching post, too.
