Once again my old friend serendipity was looking out for me. We had gone to the bar at the Strand Hotel in Yangon, Myanmar (Rangoon, Burma) to have a drink and wait for the light to get better so I could do a little street photography. It was pretty cool being able to hang out where some of my literary heroes – Rudyard Kipling, George Orwell, Somerset Maugham, Noel Coward – used to imbibe. Almost next to the hotel was the old colonial era Port Authority Building. I had seen many photos of the exterior of this landmark and I was excited to find this derelict old place. On approach I noticed that the chain on the front door had been left hanging open and being the curious sort I decided to throw caution to the wind and have a look inside. It was incredible! Almost like a temple itself.
I had never seen photos of the interior of this building before and I was lucky to be able to get a few shots but this was another of those times that I wished I had my Canon 6D with me instead of the G16 but I made the most of it. I still haven’t seen other interior shots of this fascinating building and the camera that is best is of course the one you have with you.
