Travel Photo Thursday — October 11, 2012 — A Bangkok Moment

Posted by on Oct 11, 2012 in Thailand, Travel Photo Thursday | 43 comments


Welcome to another week of Travel Photo Thursday . The past two weeks have been hectic. Between traveling on the weekends and preparing for upcoming midterm exams, there has not been much time for processing new photos. I’ve recently booked my winter flight to Thailand, and that got me thinking about many of my Thailand shots that I’ve never posted. This week I give you a favorite shot that I took in Bangkok last winter.

To join in the Travel Photo Thursday fun simply post a photo on your blog. Return here and place your link in the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post.

Please post a link to a post featuring a travel photo, not simply a link to your blog.

The Twitter hash tag for Travel Photo Thursday is #TPThursday.

As a courtesy please post a link to Budget Travelers Sandbox.


A Bangkok moment…

(Taken one evening when I was wandering around downtown Bangkok. Monks were attending a large prayer gathering, and I caught him as he was leaving the prayers.)

  1. I have a severe case of Monk-o-mania. I stalk them with my eyes. Can’t get enough of them. Thanks for fuelling the obsession, lol.

  4. A beautiful shot. I love how you’ve caught the light on his robes. Thailand sounds like a well earned break for you.

  5. I feel like there is some mystery with this photo. And fantastic depth of colour.

  6. Fantastic photo – there is something about the color and the light that does give a depth of ‘feel’ to this photo. We are still in Tuscany and head for the cruise ship today. I hope to get some photos uploaded sometime in the next few days. . .sometimes travel keeps you hopping, doesn’t it?

  7. Great colors and a beautiful light. Excellent photo, Nancie!

  8. Monks are so photogenic. Once I came across 4 of them sitting on a bench in zurich with their backs to me, with a beautiful backdrop of lake and snowy mountains…and I didn’t have a camera. Would have been the perfect shot.

  11. Love that color and the way it is lit up. Almost seems to be glowing.

  12. WAs his robe really red, or is that a red light shining on him? (I’ll resist saying he was in the red-light district–but there, I didn’t resist, did I?) A really intriguing photo, Nancie.

  13. He is glowing! Love the shot- usually I see monk photos from the front but I love the unusual perspective.

  14. I’ve always loved their bright orange. Such a contrast from the all white we’re used to.

    • The orange does make a statement.

  15. I have friends that spent a bit of time in Thailand this past winter teaching English. They loved it and shared the neatest pictures and stories from their trip. Now my kids want to visit Thailand as well.

  16. SO interesting to see him completely out of context, on a busy street!!

  17. Great lighting on this shot!

    • Thanks Dick! I was pleased with the light.

  18. I am glad I found this from Inside Journeys. So many beautiful places here.

  19. Great shot, Nancie. Love the scene & that gorgeous orange. I didn’t get a TPT post ready in time this week, but will be trying to get to some of the people on the list anyway.

  20. Lovely shot with all that orange. One of my favourite times to go for a walk in Thailand/Cambodia/Laos was as the student monks were all leaving for the day. With the temples and vibrant green trees, the bright orange of their robes (and often bright orange umbrellas if it was Phnom Penh) made the city so colourful.

  21. I love to spot the old Thailand as it clashes with the high-rises of the new. Great post
