Mouth Stained Red With Kun

Man smiling with his mouth open

The man opened his bright reddened mouth and laughed

Shot at Kyauktan Township in Myanmar.

Walking through the passage in the market, I went out of the market from an opposite exit. The street was wide and many pedestrians walked because it stopped raining. This street seemed to be also one of the main streets in this town. The shops stood on both sides of the street. It was bustling. And it was what I wanted to see during traveling. Holding my camera, I moved through a crowd. Some people showed an interest in a foreign traveler and some people were not.

The man in this photo was the former. When he noticed me, he stopped in front of me. And he smiled happily with his mouth open. Some laugh lines were seen at the corners of his eyes. And his mouth was stained red. He could chew kun, a preparation combining betel leaf with areca nut.
