Woman Crossing With Umbrella

Woman crossing street with umbrella in front of Sule Pagoda

The woman crossed the street with an umbrella

Shot in the city of Yangon, Myanmar.

The famous Sule Pagoda is built on a roundabout interestingly. So you have to cross a wide street surrounded the place where the pagoda stood. Watching the structure, I felt as if the street insulated the precinct from the temporal world. Yet the isolation seemed to be imperfect. The basement of this precinct is occupied by many shops belonged to the real world. In other words, the precinct of this Buddhist temple is built above the temporal stores. The celestial world could spread above my head.

Standing on the edge of the roundabout, I watched the structure of this temple. In the meantime, a woman appeared. She put a sunshade up to avoid the strong sun. She started to cross the wide street with the sunshade. And the golden pagoda towered on the other side of her.
