Shwedagon Sun

I was walking circles around Shwedagon Pagoda at noon - when it is the hottest. This Buddhist monk ('Sayadaw' in Burmese) had improvised a sun block by lifting extra lengths from his robe onto his head. The black space border is meant to add space and framing to the Sayadaw in this moment in time.
