One of the best things about traveling is trying new things. I started a little folder a few months back of beers I have tried in different countries. Sorry to say I didn’t get all them on film but I have been able to enjoy many beers on long nights. When I do travel I [...]

You can’t talk very much about Asia without saying something about the monks there. There are many temples and all are mostly ran by the monks of the Buddhist religion. To become a monk is considered very noble and is a way for a local to gain a higher level in society. Not all of them are monks [...]
Since I’m finishing up my Thai stuff this week I thought might as well stick with the Buddha theme. Below is yet another example of two different types of reclining Buddha statues, one from Ayutthata and the other is in Bangkok. I think of all the styles out there I like this style best for [...]
Comparing two different Buddha statues from the same town. Each were at different sites, created at different times. Both are very similar in many ways, yet different. As much as one might get “Buddha out” while in Asia I do always find it interesting the many faces and styles you see. I guess it’s no different then [...]
I think just about everyone has seen this picture at some point in their life. It’s one of the most famous Buddha images out there and if your in Asia very long you will for sure see it 10,000x. I had long thought that this statue was in Cambodia until I finally went to Angkor [...]
This is one of the best pictures I got while in Ayutthaya, Thailand. I had done some research on the place before leaving Bangkok of what professional photographers had shot while there. I wasn’t going to try and reinvent the wheel here and was just wanting to get some solid images to add to my [...]
One of the main reasons I wanted to come to Ayutthaya was to take the below pictures. I can’t recall exactly how many Buddha statues there are here at this temple but I would guess it exceeds well over 200+. The monks and nuns put the robes on the statues every day and it makes for a dramatic picture [...]
While trying to rush around the last few weeks in Thailand before I had to leave out, I went North of Bangkok a few hours by train to the old capital of Thailand called Ayutthaya. At one time this was the mecca place for Asia and capital of Thailand from 1351-1767. Now today it’s full of ruins and [...]
Picture was taken at Victory Monument in Bangkok. I lived about 5 minutes from this place and had been meaning to photograph it for a long time. Not until the last week I was in BKK did I get around to it though. What was interesting to me about this place was that it’s Bangkok’s biggest around-about. That in itself [...]
More pictures from Phetchaburi, at the Tham Khao Luang Cave. If your down with Buddha and are into caves…this is the place for you!
Sorry for not posting anything the last few days. I have finally left Asia and am now in Ecuador, South America. The ordeal of flying for me anymore is wanted as much as a hemorrhoid check. I used to love flying when I was younger. The thought of going to an airport, the excitement of packing my suitcase and [...]
Tham (cave) Khao Luang is located at about 4 kilometers from Phetchaburi inside of Khao Luang Hill. This was my real reason for coming to Phetchaburi, after I had seen some images of this place before on the internet. Coming from the Ozarks in Missouri exploring caves is a must and the thought of being able to [...]
