Man Balancing Spice

Man balancing spice

A man balanced while he stretched his arm

Shot at a market in Yangon, Myanmar.

The shop I was attracted next was a spice shop. Like other South Eastern Asian countries, Burmese cuisine uses also spices. Many containers and cans filled with a spice were displayed in this store. Various spices seemed to be sold. And a man wearing glasses sat on the other side of the containers and cans. Yet I didn't understand what kind of spices he sold. The only thing I could know was this store sold various spices.

In the meantime, a customer came and the storekeeper got an order. And he started to balance the spice because his articles for sale were bagged. He stood up and stretched his arm to tip the scale. His expression was unexpectedly serious as if his failure caused the world to end.
