Phra Boromthat Chedi Maha Chakripipat

Phra Boromthat Chedi Maha Chakripipat

If you are wondering what Phra Boromthat Chedi Maha Chakripipat means, it’s a roughly translated to mean the Stupa that contains the Buddha’s relics for the progress and stability of the Chakri Dynasty. You can read more about this here. I took this image and a few others at Wat Yanasangvararam when I took a drive out there and packed a camera. I like to go walking in different areas. It was nice because this is normally a tourist temple….

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…

If you ask me who the monk is in this I don’t…

Under Construction

I haven’t done a monochrome image in a while and when I took this one I knew it was going to be monochrome. It just felt right. I was shooting some place else when I saw this Buddha. Not really knowing where it was led to an adventure of getting attacked by dogs and crashing a motorbike but happy to report other than some scrapes on the bike and me it ended happily as I found the temple complex. I…

Worship At The Feet Of Buddha

Worship At The Feet Of Buddha

The image it now up! It seems my mother may be doubting my gentleman of leisure lifestyle I have adopted here in Thailand and is strongly suggesting images from the Kingdom so I felt obligated to oblige her. To be perfectly honest, while this is a functioning temple here in Thailand its also a bit of a tourist trap. Still, I always like to come and shoot it at least once. Over the years as my photography skills have increased…
