An Evening At Yangon Wharf

2008.09.10

lovely DOVES on the roof...

a tone of struggling life on the jetty...

now... these jetties are no more... they got sunk because of NARGIS cyclone...

everyday, this place load and unload thousands of passengers and hundreds of tons of products...

various street vendors are selling their products under umbrellas...

a tiring laborer again...

Friends:

That’s what I have shot some 3 months back. I went there with my best friend. In fact, we went there to see the rice bags unloading. I was holding my camera and thus I have got these shots.

I am really busy these days. And I’ve just recovered from my flu. Still having slight coughing and sore throat which make me feels under par.

Dear Golden Bro,

Your shots are completely nice! That's one I want to see actually what is going on among my people. How could they get the enfranchisement from heavy loading on their backs for their living? Don't they have no right to choose other sorts of work? They are nobody else but our nationals! So, from your photos I got the sense to treat my people in sympathy more than before. Thanks a lot . I hope my life to have the power for helping such kind of person . :)

nesay07 Nice Pictures.
Oh!!! Life is life. Our lives will go on in whichever situation and how hard it is. Empathy on our nationals especially low income.
Get well soon, with back date.

alirezahabibi Very touching and nice shots !!!

ThomasChu Nice capture for the last shot :)
For my humble comment:
Blurring out the background using editing is not natural. Using large aperture to blur out the background will look more natural :)

DirtyTricks Hard life.. i can feel the weigh!

Daryl Specially like the last one here. Such a pity that the whole place was taken out by the cyclone. Has it been rebuilt yet? Wharves are such interesting alive places. Here in Melbourne, Australia, you cannot get onto the wharves unless you have a security clearance, so, unless you have a real need to be there, they are off limits. I used to fish from them with my dad when I was younger, and he'd tell me about the ships and their engines, some of which he had designed. No more... Still, there are other places to go to cast a line.

HHandrey cuando veo la foto 6 me acuerdo de algo que decia Flaubert acerca de quedar fascinado ante alguien en la calle o en cualquier lado, pensar en su mundo, en su vida, en sus dias....seguramente de este personaje cargando ese bulto se podria escribir toda una gran obra; muy evocadora esta foto!!
