Faces On Friday - World at Work - Ferry Ticket Office - Myanchan Jetty - Mandalay - Myanmar

A couple of weeks ago for my World at Work feature I posted photos of the famous Star Ferry in Hong Kong. I came across this photo when I was writing the next post for Travel Tales which is about a trip to Mingun from Mandalay. It struck me just how very different the World of Work is for these young ladies in comparison to those Hong Kong Ferry Sailors.

The second photo is of my daughter and myself with the 'Tourist Police', there to make sure everything went smoothly and that we caught the right ferry! They were very keen to be photographed with us, they are so excited that more people are now visiting their beautiful country. I thought it made a good subject for 'Faces On Friday'

Please visit my Travel Tales blog if you are interested in seeing more photos of the trip to Mingun.

  5. How I wish I could take people pictures as well as you can! Lovely memories of your wonderful trip.

  6. Dear Linda, great photos as always! Your daughter looks very like you. I never would think of taking a photo of a ticket office, and yet I find it totally fascinating. Thank you for helping me to see with new eyes! Love Linda x


Welcome to my photography blog, where I share the world as seen through my lens. All commenter's will receive a visit back from me but no longer individual replies unless you have a question, which I will respond to here. Your praise and kind words are always appreciated but to keep saying thankyou to you all individually, in an original way is not easy. So I am saying it here instead, a massive thankyou from my heart for all the wonderful support, your comments are a great encouragement to me.
