The Westernization of Myanmar Has Begun

Myanmar. A photographer’s dream come true for cultural photography may soon fall victim to the same westernization that we see in Japan, Korea, Thailand and others. KFC has opened it’s doors to the streets of Yangon and things will never be the same. [click link to read more...]

Only in the eyes of westerners.  Burma is the name given to the country by the British during their imperialist occupation of Myanmar.  Historically the land has been Myanmar.  The name was given because the largest sect within the country were known as "Burmese" and thus they named the country such.

The government officially changed the name back to it's original/proper name in 1989.  Because western governments (specifically the U.S.A, do not like the ruling government they basically ignore the change saying that they knew better what the populus prefered -  as such most westerners are ignorant of the name's history.

All Burmese whom I asked face to face said they use "Myanmar" as the country's name, sometimes Burmese in reference to their culture or heritage.  Its my opinion that history and the county's population know better than our government what they should be called.

Light Painting a House (including mistakes)

So I was at my parents home in Arizona and wanted to play around a bit with some light painting.  But what to shoot?  There were plenty of cactus and such around but I wanted to really push the boundaries of what I have done thus far in light painting.  I decided to go big,,, in the literal sense.

       (Specializing in SE Asia and Central America)

It's a changing world, and soon it will become a homogeneous world. I don't much care for that idea, so I'm trying to see different cultures and unspoiled lands while they still exist. Along the way I want to help others to see the magic of the world around them through the lens of a camera.
