I know it’s been quite a while since I’ve last posted. But what can I say – I’m enjoying myself :-)
Good news though, I haven’t been completely unproductive in the photography world. My NEX-7’s shutter has been working overtime, and taken several thousand photographs in which I’ve post processed the majority. It’s just getting them online that’s the hard part. So for now here are some of my favourites from Bangkok.
In the center of Bangkok is one of the most beautiful temples Thailand has to offer, Wat Pho. It encompasses the famous 50m Reclining Buddah (actually 43m) draped in gold with mother-of-pearl feet. Inside the compound are temples galore, highly polished and glittering spectacularly with their colours in the sun.
Above are several colourful Tuk Tuk’s lined up at one end of Bangkok’s craziest street, Khaosan road. Here the music blares from speakers till early morning hours, every night. Billboards of every colour dangle over head in their hundreds. Locals with their stools sell everything from deep fried grasshoppers and spiders, to electronics, fake ID cards and university degree’s of your choice. Clothes, bags, watches – you got it… Anything goes here!
I personally prefer the more laid back version, Rambruttri street, a block away. This has far more of a quaint character, and dozens of amazing food stools to pull up a plastic pew to. It’s somewhere you can kick back and recharge.
Where am I now? Well, I’m currently writing this from Pakse, Laos, in which I have to tell you – this country is absolutely amazing! Home to some of the most amazing scenery I’ve come across. I can’t wait to release these photos – stay tuned!
