This #Burmese man very patiently poses for me on the ferry crossing across the Yangon River in #Myanmar.

#Burmese #horseman in #Myanmar watches the Novice Ceremony where kids join the first stage of the process to become a monk. My first day in #Yangon my guide and I crossed over the other side of the Yangon River in the more rural suburbs, well worth it #photography #inpersuitofcontrast #lightroom #capturethemoment #streetphotography #lightroom #fujifilm #fujifilmxt2 #35mmphotography #35mm #cowboys #travel #travelphotography #travelgram #fotografia #light #contrast #amateurphotography

My final day in #Yangon before flying home to #saigon my guide and I took the train out of town during the #waterfestival #Thingyan #kids waited to ambush #train passengers with buckets of water being hurled through the train, some fun shots to come #photography #travelphotography #travelgram #iwc #bigpilot #myanmar #lonelyplanet #lightroom #35mmphotography #trainride #contrast

The last of my #photos from the trip to #Nepal a #Sadhu #holyman in the #Pashupatinath temple of #Kathmandu , these people give up all belongings to choose a life of absolute poverty surviving only on donations. Legally Sadhu as dead to the country of India, and said to be dead to them selves, attending their own funeral before becoming a #Guru. Small fact, history records the Sadhus as being the first people to #dreadlock their #hair #travel #travelphotography #lonelyplanet #fujifilm #fujifilmxt2 #35mm #35mmphotography #asiaphotography #lightroom #picoftheday #contrast #fotografia #amateurphotography #igtravel #fujifilm_xseries

A little wet #monkey enjoys the sun set in the #Pashupatinath temple in #Kathmandu . While families grieved their loved ones these little monkeys would climb on the roof of the cremation bay and then dive bomb through the smoke into the river, run around and do it over again! #lonelyplanet #travel #travelgram #travelphotography #fujifilm #fujifilmxt2 #fujifilmxseries #lightroom #fotografia #amateurphotography #50to140 #contrast #insearchofcontrast

A labourer carries straw to the next cremation at the Pashupatinath Temple in #Kathmandu #nepal I spent an incredibly intense day wondering around this holy site, the cremation in the back ground was of a senior military leader, the Last Post was played by a military regiment that lined the bank on the other side of the river. #travelphotography #asiaphotography #fujifilm #35mm #35mmphotography #contrast #photography #lightroom #fujifilmxt2 #fujifilmxseries #travelgram #lonelyplanet #fotografia
