Photographer's Note

Another early morning, another market!!

A typical atmosphere taken in Nyaungshwe, a dusty canal-side township and centre of economic activity surrounding Inle Lake early in the morning at one of many narrow canals. Being vital mean of cargo movers, the long canoes belong to intha farmers from surrounding lake area as they come into town to sell their locally grown fruits and vegetables.

Some empty canoes have already unloaded their cargo while others are still awaiting their turn with their bounty and some families come to do their regular household shopping to pick up supplies from nearby shops. A place congregated by Intha farmers and the locals alike every morning where business is thrive and the markets are huge. Everyone comes to town, comes early and comes loaded whilst transaction to the middle men with their fleet of trucks went on so smoothly

There are moments I feel that there's no end to this frantic pace of life going along the chocked small waterways and the quay side. It's so crowded, noisy and colourful but well organised, everyone has a purpose and everyone is busy. It’s business and fun, and there's plentiful that caught my eye...
