Woman With Narrow Eyes

Woman with whitened face

Her face was whitened

Shot in the city of Pyay, Myanmar.

The woman was sitting at the door of her house. What she wore was a frilled clothes and cute. Like other locals, her cheeks were white because she painted Thanaka. The locals painted Thanaka not only during staying out but also during relaxing in the home. Perhaps they got through with Thanaka from breakfast to bedtime.

Although she was approachable, she refused eye contact when I focused on her. Maybe she got shy. As witness, I saw a faint smile on her lips.
