Travel Photo Contest – Sam Gellman

I got up around 6am during my last day travelling in Burma, because I really wanted to get a shot of the long “trains” of monks that would move through the villages collecting alms in the mornings. After the monks had returned to the monastery, it was still early so I kept walking the village. I saw this street with stunning back-light that villagers were traveling on towards the town market. The woman walking towards me and the dog on the road provided a distinctly Burma feel, and the bicycle and people off in the distance added an element of depth. The steeple on the right adds a touch of Burmese architecture to a shot that is primarily about light. The light, colors, and untouched feel of Burma are second-to-none among my travel destinations.
