This photo was one of many taken at the Sunrise Pagoda in December of 2011.This was my first trip to Burma, an eye opening trip for sure. In the ancient capital of Bagan, a small boy saw me early in the morning and said, “where you are going?” I said, “to the sunrise Pagoda…” He said, “I take you a shortcut....” It was a shortcut indeed and after climbing to the second level of this ancient pagoda the light was perfect, the balloons came and viola! I gave my tour guide a small reward for his efforts to get me there in time. I was happy to capture this shot and want to share it with the world.
