A Man and His Ride

During my travels in other countries, one thing I've noticed is how important an object can be. When you have very little, the things you own can take on their own persona. For the people living in Myanmar, motorbikes are an essential part of life. This man seemed to sit on his bike with great pride as if to exclaim "this is mine."
