"Hopes and dreams" - Myanmar, Oct. 2014
____________________
A man agazes the horizon as his journey through the jungle takes place. The ride is long, and he got plenty of time to think...
Through that noisy tin can he might reach a better place, but who knows!
Shots from a long but unique journey by train, to really grasp what Myanmar is all about.
At first the subjects studied the photographer as much as him intended to study them. But after long hours of trip his presence was finally absorbed, the shyness surpassed, and the real portraits of the Burmese people appeared...

Impressive view right into Mount Bromo's guts, after an extenuating hike amidst the surrounding sulfur vapors.

____________________
A Buddhist monk rests in his spot. Struggling to find his meditation zone, in this bumpy and noisy tin can moving slowly through the jungle.
If one picture is allowed let's not abuse of our presence... The journey is long and we'll have propper time for interactions.

Shots from a long but unique ride to really grasp what Myanmar is all about. After extenuating hours of trip the presence of the photographer was finally absorbed. The shyness surpassed, and the real portraits of the Burmese people appeared.
