There were many food stalls bustling on the road near the market in Bago. Some of them were selling food. The woman in the photo was one of the workers at a stall selling fried food. When I came to the stall, the woman grabbed the food in a large bowl and threw it into the pot one after another. She was busy cooking deep-fried food.
Even when I stopped in front of her and pointed my camera at her, she did not stop cooking. She was probably busy making fried food. Even though she did not look at the camera, she was aware that I was pointing the lens at her. As I clicked the shutter, a shy smile began to appear on the woman's face, as if she was becoming embarrassed to have her picture taken. Even though she spoke to the acquaintance beside her, as if asking for help, she did not interrupt the action of grabbing the ingredients from the bowl and throwing them into the pot.
