16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Buddhas of Bagan

This was a picture I took in one of the smaller, hidden pagodas in Bagan. It lies on the banks of the Irrawaddy River, tucked away near a local restaurant. Bagan is so full of history and is part of my cultural heritage and the profound beauty that can be found everywhere moves me so deeply.
