I almost deleted this photo. The Action challenge arrived in my mailbox just in time for me to retrieve and share it. It was taken at the Shwe Inn Thein pagoda near Lake Inle, Myanmar. The children are carrying typical baskets attached to a headband. This way leaves both arms free. I don’t know what they were carrying and they rushed past me too quickly to get a second shot.
The approach to the Shwe Inn Thein pagoda at In Dein, Lake Inle, Myanmar, is up a long slope of very many steps. Fortunately it’s covered, for in the heat of the day, it would be impossible to climb. It’s lined with stalls selling all sorts of handicrafts but there were also a couple of bric-a-brac stalls.
I’m enjoying Jennifer’s weekly challenge based on colours. I’m also finding they challenge my perceptions of colour. What’s in a name you might ask? Well, in previous weeks Saffron looked like mustard to me; Indigo was definitely purple not the blue I expected and Strawberry was much too pink for my liking. I see red when my husband sees orange, green when he sees blue, etc. I think I must be one of those females whose colour-perception is out of kilter with everyone else’s (yes, such people do exist).
I wasn’t sure I even had any bittersweet photos in my archives …..
all photos taken in the Abbey Gardens, Malmsbury, UK for Sue’s word challenge.
Using the ‘rule of thirds’ is the best way to compose a great shot, where the focal point is not in the dead centre of the photo.
What forms of energy did you harness for Ailsa’s challenge?
