With borders still closed it’s doubtful I’ll get to visit Cambodia this year. Good thing there is lots to explore in Thailand. Still, always had a good time in Cambo as we call it here. I shot this at a little temple off the River Walk, same the doorway from last week. Enjoy.
Honestly, I don’t remember which temple this was. It was right off the River Walk and just before 172 St. walking towards that street in Phnom Penh is about all I can tell you. I just liked the door. Looks cool. You think you are going to get some enlightenment dropped on you instead of a bunch of monks reciting the Dharma. Sadly, it was closed on the day I visited. Enjoy.
You will be shocked where you will find small shrines and temples in Thailand. This one is located just off the infamous dead Walking St. in Pattaya. I went up there since there are zero tourists and had the place to myself. I have photographed this place before but never got it to come out. This time I got lucky! Enjoy. PS – It took Walking St. being closed to actually get me to set foot on it again.
Since there are exactly zero tourists here in Pattaya I had the pleasure of wandering “Chinatown” which is a joke but still, I had the place to myself. Well, maybe not myself, there was a lady at the temple for about a minute and a security guard sitting there bored. In all, it was a pleasant day out since I was up in the area picking up some stuff from a store so I figured I swing by and take…
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….
This is another one from Sri Ratcha I took while baking slowly in the heat. They have a ton of tuktuk’s around the pier area. Where I live we don’t have them. Honestly, to be fair to the guy it was fairly early in the day and when these guys aren’t busy they tend to play on their phones. Enjoy! PS – Bonus points if you know where the title comes from.
This was taken at a temple on top of a mountain in Sri Ratcha, Thailand. Yes, it’s the same place where Sri Ratch sauce was named after. It’s about 40 minutes away from me by car. I didn’t see much of the place because it was soul burning hot that day and I was slowly melting. Enjoy.
This is the head of the Reclining Buddha. I figured I had it might as well post it. Enjoy
Not the easiest place to shoot considering the lighting in there. You get a mix of natural light through the temple windows and artificial light. So you will never get an even finish on the Buddha. Enjoy.
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…
