Ordinary Lives - tribal lady Inle Lake Myanmar

By redefined  
Ordinary lives- ordinary to them but not necessarily to us.

This photo was taken at a stilt village on the ends of Inle Lake, she is a weaver, and making artefacts for tourists. Not from Inle itself but from a tribe in the hills. Wish we had a form of communication, she was very friendly and in her own way, welcoming .

Ordinary Lives will be a series of images from different places but expect a lot from Myanmar/Burma, for the next few weeks .

One of the first shots with a new camera ( to me) a fuji XM1- I normally shoot raw and convert - with this camera it seems pointless, the JPGs are exceptional.

Yes indeed, a rather exceptional shot with your new camera. I think this person's facial features, eyes and mouth, caught my attention to deliver a form of communication that can do without language. Can't quite make out the object below her chin. Is it something she uses to rest her head while she works. Regards, Paul
