A beautiful temple right on the bank of the Chao Phraya River. It's one of the best know temple in Bangkok and unfortunately when I was there they have a renovation to the main chedi/dome. So there was scaffolding everywhere.
I walk around the temple a few times to get the best shot and blocked out the scaffolding. You just have to imagine how beautiful the temple at sunrise. I didn't get to see the temple at sunrise but definitely my next trip to Bangkok I will put it up on my to do list. There's a reason why it called "The Temple of Dawn" by the locals right?

The great thing about travel is you get to see different culture and ofcourse buildings. I shot this while on a touring ship in the River of Kings, the Chao Phraya Touring Boat. I highly recommended it if you want to see the life around this famous river.
Get the hop on, hop off option which is roughly $10 Australian dollar a bargain in my opinion. I went on the public boat the first time I was using the boat and I could not get a breathing room. Big mistake for visitors to Bangkok. As you could imagine I did not have the chance to photograph anything.
During my time in Bangkok I managed to use this service a few times which I am still processing some of the photos up till now. So a memory still lingers on and I wish I could be back to Bangkok already.

I've have just acquired a super telephoto lens, the 300-600mm lens which I could have shots like the photo above. One of the reason I have switched from Canon to M43 format because of the light lens option with the M43 system. I could hold the 300-600 one hand all day and didn't feel any weight pressure on my body. Try that with you full frame format system.

A very interesting decorations on top of the bell in the Wat Traimit Temple. Lots of people have missed but not with a photographer eyes. Sure people were spell bound by the majestic statue of the Golden Buddha and the view on top of the temple. But look further and you will come back with interesting photos.

Still haven't share the photos that I took last year to Queensland and Northern Territory. It certainly brought back a few memories. With the bar in photo this was in the middle of Australia. Roughly middle of nowhere, great to have a drink hey?

Shot this awhile back and I though I share it now. Something you don't see everyday. A double exposure is one of the oldest trick in photography if you have the camera to do it.

After six weeks away to SE Asia I have to work somehow right? Not everyone is lucky enough to have the funds to travel the world. Initially my plan was to to travel for 2 months but ran out of fund in Chiangmai. I could have gone further but I will live very poorly. I'm an Aussie, we work hard and play even harder.
So back to Sydney for one week to see family and friends then back to work picking imperials mandarins. It was a long season and I managed to saved enough to continue my trip in Indochina. I'm back home in Sydney as I want to spend sometime with family. This year so far I have travel away from home than lived in it. When you travel the things you will miss most is family and the comfort meals that only family can provide.
Planning my next adventure already. So this year will be my travelling year. Thinking of going to Vietnam first then resume the trip in Laos and Cambodia. The return ticket is scheduled in Bangkok.
