Boy Selling Fishes

Boy selling fishesl

Some fishes were displayed in front of the boy

Shot in the city of Yangon, Myanmar.

The Buddhist monks, who asked alms, passed by me. They continued to walk through the street market smoothly and walked away soon. Then, I decided to shoot a look at the local people who didn't enter into the priesthood.

Where I came at first was a fishmonger. A boy looked after the store and some fishes were displayed in front of him. I didn't know what kind of fishes they were. However, every piece was big and fresh.

Although the Buddhist monks came to this street market to ask alms, this fishmonger couldn't give any articles for sale as an alms. It didn't mean the fishmonger was costive. The monks belonged to Theravada Buddhism. So it was prohibited to eat meat by the commandment. Maybe this fishmonger gave them some money on behalf of the fishes.
