The pagodas of Indein, Myanmar are slowly being consumed by the forces of nature.
Plants are sinking their deep roots into the iron-rich bricks, prying them apart one by one. Rain and wind are clawing relentlessly at their surfaces, peeling off layer after layer of their outer skin.
So, after more than 800 years of the unsympathetic law of gravity, the pagodas are exhausted. Deeply exhausted. And defiant, and proud, and lovely, and elegant, resilient, grounded, gorgeous, solid, and of course, simply beautiful.
