The title suggested a solid irony of the clashes of time. Taken inside the Ananda Temple (Built 1105 AD) in the ancient city of Bagan, Myanmar. A visiting monk held up his ipad and took a shot of the historical buddha statue. == The Past, The Present, The Future == A thousand year old temple from the distant past, a monk dedicated to his religion in the present time, taking a snapshot of the ancient artifact with a futuristic next generation device ...... all these ideas crossfire in my head when I took the shot.
Location: Bagan, Myanmar
