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.

I…

Little bit of Thailand in Virginia

I miss Thailand a lot.  It’s not a secret and with the weather being horrific around here I miss it even more.  There is a wat (temple) near me that serves the local Thai community so after a camera show where I picked up a 55mm 1.2 lens I headed out to Wat Yarnna Rangsee and shot these.  It was Noon so the light was horrible and the camera was still in jpeg mode which I realized AFTER this shoot…
