I Explored The Vibrant Surrounding Village Life Of Bagan

by​Zacho Ho

As the morning sun gently hits the beautiful stupa-strewn landscape of Bagan, I explored the vibrant surrounding village life. The most beautiful time of the day to visit Bagan is during sunrise or sunset. It’s difficult to take it all in. I just need to spend more days. I wanted to create a storytelling photos, hence spending few days chasing after the cattle & goats during sunset. It was dusty and the lighting condition just changed rapidly. I needed to get my camera setting changed fast in order not to miss the moment I wanted. The sun rays were filtering through the foliage with the kicked up of the dust from the cattle & goats was amazing.

On the outskirts of Sapporo, Japan, you will find the Makomanai Takino Cemetery. Established in 1982, a large stone Buddha sculpted 15 years ago sat alone in a vast field, giving an ‘unrestful impression’ according to the client.
