Duck Herder in Mandalay

The Bridge in Mandalay (Myanmar) is one of those iconic photo places. The actual name of the bridge is U Bein Bridge, but I don’t think anyone knows it by that name. I was really excited to take photos of monks walking on the bridge, but was disappointed to see thousands of people walking on the bridge and thousands more sitting in boats waiting for the sunset. So, I didn’t take any of the typical photos that all the other tourists were taking. Instead, I saw this duck herder with his flock of ducks…the way the shadow of the bridge falls on the water is classic coupled with the ripples of the water. I thought it made for a nice composition.
