Entrance Gate At Wat Pho

Entrance Gate At Wat Pho

I was tempted to call this one who guards who but I get better traction on posts when I use a Thailand title. While not the biggest fan of SEO I do know how to use and abuse it when it suits the purpose. I swore off doing photos of Wat Pho because they are not letting foreign residents of the Kingdom in. It makes me a wee bit angry as a foreign resident of Thailand. Still, it’s a good…

Stupas At Wat Pho

Stupas At Wat Pho

Very obvious from the title that these are stupas at Wat Pho or Reclining Buddha in Bangkok. If you go to any temple complex you will see stupas all over the place. If you are desperate to learn more feel free to click on the link. Wikipedia knows everything. The internet, in theory making people smarter but mostly used for social outrage from anonymous people passing judgement on others. I just want to point out that editing this was a…

Self Isolating Without A Care In The World

Self Isolating Without A Care In The World

I’m working on a major editing project along with all sorts of stuff I have ignored so I took a break because I had a cat photo. Who doesn’t like cat photos? I took this one at Wat Pho in Bangkok last month. I had no real idea if it would ever be published but when you want a quick edit your go-to is always an animal photo. In this a cat at a temple which is a common sight….

Making An Offering

Making An Offering

Taken at Wat Phra Chetuphon (Wat Pho) or the Temple Of The Reclining Buddha if you are inclined in Bangkok. You can buy a cup full of fake coins for 20 Baht and then make an offering to the small pots set around the reclining Buddha. This was a local Thai who was visiting. It should be noted that Thais get in for free, if you are a foreigner it’s 200 Baht. Sadly, Thai drivers licenses don’t count for being…

Random Temple In Bangkok

Random Temple In Bangkok

I honestly have no idea what the name of this temple is in Bangkok. All I know is that it was off Khao San Road. In Thailand, a temple or a wat in Thai are a Baht a dozen. To be fair, once you seen one wat you kinda of seen them all. There are only a few that stand out. The trick is to wander around the grounds until you find something different. Granted, I didn’t do that with…

Bangkok Buildings

Bangkok Buildings

It seems appropriate to publish this set of images today because I will be on the final leg of my flight back to Thailand when these go live. I don’t live in Bangkok and it’s not my favorite place due to the traffic and congestion. Still, it represents the final portion of my sojourn to get home. From Suwannaphum Airport or BKK back to Jomtien where I happily live. Shot on a Nikon D5500 and using the Sigma 17-50mm 2.0…

People Of Bangkok

People Of Bangkok

I shot these last June when I was in Bangkok for a few days. I’m not the worlds biggest fan of the Big Mango as Bangkok is known. It’s also known as a city suffering from horrible air quality. The Bangkok Metropolitan Authority is trying everything to clear the air. Including spraying the air with molasses with drones. I wish I was making that up. These were shot around Sukhimvit Soi 4 and Khao San Rd. using my Nikon D5500…

Kneeling Before Buddha

Kneeling Before Buddha

I took this when I was in Bangkok earlier this year with some friends. We were near Koh San Road which didn’t impress me much but I’m not the world’s biggest fan of Bangkok. We wandered off the path and happily found this little temple. Since Koh San Road is a major tourist area there wasn’t a lot of people around so I had the place to myself. Enjoy.
