Mandalay is where we’re spending for 4 nights, our days are spent visiting Inwa, Sagaing, Amarapura and Ubien Bridge. Amarapura, the City of Immortals, was a capitol before Mandalay was built. In Amarapura we visit and photograph the Mahagandayone monastery, to observe the morning meal of hundreds of monks. Then it’s off to Segaing, a religious sanctuary with the town at the foot of the hills and hundreds of pagodas, monasteries and nunneries tucked into the surrounding valleys and hills. It’s a photographer’s paradise, with some monasteries made of brick in a combination of Western and Myanmar architectural designs, while others are constructed from massive teak wood trees. We also photograph Mahamuni Pagoda with it’s gilded arches and burgundy tiles. Among the most memorable and fun shoots so far has been our visit with the friendly, pink-clad nuns who are always such a pleasure to photograph and interact with.
