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 this set but there was a Chinese Temple next to this one and I got a few shots.
Shot on a Nikon D5500 and a Sigma 17-50mm 2.0 – 4.0.
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 to 4.0 lens around Sukhimvit Soi 4 and Khao San Rd. The Sigma 17-50mm 2.0 to 4.0 is a great little lens that gives you a great focal range to work with on a crop sensor.
Only 5 shots after the marathon of 12 I published on Monday.
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.
