In the artist's own words: “Honorable Mention"Floating Market"Inle Lake, MyanmarBy Emily Clare MalloryIn the Artist's Own Words: "On Inle Lake in Myanmar locals buy and sell produce and animals at floating markets. Buyers and sellers paddle dugout canoes or drive small boats to markets in the middle of the lake.People, canoes and boats are in constant motion. Sales happen as canoes and boats glide past each other. Canoes and boats touch while buyers or sellers hold on to each other's boats only long enough to make a sale."
