Happy Myanmar New Year!

Happy Myanmar New Year!
I’m always drawn to the intensity of the moment of people and places that most overlook. In one of the most famous and crowded Pagodas in Myanmar I noticed this monk sitting quietly and very deeply meditating. His focus was so amazing he was able to apperently tune out the crowds, noise, and distractions and just focus his mind. I sat and watched him for over 6 hours this day. When he was done I approached him and asked him about his meditation and if I could craft a portrait of him. He really liked the idea and told me that he would be back the next day at the same time and would it be okay if I worked then.
