Colorful Parasol On The Sidewalk

Colorful parasol was open on the sidewalk

A colorful parasol was open on the sidewalk

Shot in the city of Yangon, Myanmar.

The medium-rise buildings were side by side of a wide street called Pansodan street where I walked. Most of these buildings were used by the governments and others. Looking closer, one of the buildings in this photo seemed to belong to Myanmar Agricultural Development Bank. The name of the owner was written above the entrance.

According to my sources, this building was built in the 1930s. And it owned by National Bank of India at the time of construction. It is strange now, Myanmar consisted a part of British Raj at that time. I thought the cultures were different between India and Myanmar. They got lumped together by the British. Therefore, this grand building belonged to the National Bank of India.

Because it was Sunday, few pedestrians walked the street. A street vendor did business under a colorful parasol on the sidewalk. Yet the street vendor seemed to have nothing to do because of the slack. The tranquil atmosphere wafted the street.
