Colors of Buddha

Here is a festively colored area of a Buddhist temple in Thailand.

Hot Raw Sewage

A lovely inlet in Bangkok where a delicate scent was wafting from this hot raw sewage that was dumping into the river.

Jam at the Floating Market

This is the Ratchaburi Floating Market that is about 100 km outside of Bangkok. Even in the “cool” season, it was unbelievably hot and muggy, which is not the best way to hang out in these boat traffic jams. There is a lot going on in this picture; the big version shows some nice details.

The Veins of Bangkok

Daily Photo – The Veins of Bangkok

I took this about 9 PM on a clear Fall evening in Bangkok. I’m pleased with the way it turned out…

Religion from Bangkok and Rome

I suppose it’s not hard to guess which is which.

For the Catholic one, I suggest the Large on Black version.

An Old Perspective on Religion

Home Sweet Home

This is a family home I found walking through a market district of Bangkok.

Golden Buddha Throne

Here is a solid gold Buddha that weighs slightly more than Nirvana.

I was not supposed to bring my camera in there, but I mentioned that when I die, on my deathbed, I will receive total consciousness. So I got that going for me, which is nice. And while they thought about that, I took the picture.

Wat Pho

Buddha School

I was getting lost on purpose in Bangkok and I came across this really cool and seemingly hidden Buddhist Monastery. In the corner of it, I found this school where young boys are brought to be trained in the ways of Buddha. These kids were all very surprised to see me, since they don’t see anyone else for most of their schooling – especially white guys with big cameras.

They all ran over to me and that kid with the popsicle was the most engaging, asking me what kind of person I was and what the thing in my hand was. I told him it was a camera, for taking pictures, then asked him to pose so I could show him. He and the other kids hammed it up for a minute then came over to look at the pictures… they were totally fascinated.

I asked him his name, and he said, “Boy”

I further inquired, “What do you mean? You mean your name is ‘Boy’?”

“Yes.”

“And what is his name,” I asked, pointing at the other kid.

“Oh, that is Boy too,” he remarked, as if it was a silly question.

It reminded me a bit of the Marklar deal, and it was all very strange. Then the master-Buddhist Monk came over and asked me to leave because I was disturbing the children.
