There’s something about travelling that heightens your awareness of your surroundings. You notice things because, to your eyes, they are different. Large things like architectural styles through to the small details of everyday living.
As a photographer I feel compelled to capture these impressions – the things that make up the feel and flavour of a place.I recently had the pleasure of experiencing a whirlwind visit to Bangkok. It was a fleeting stopover en-route to Laos. And indeed, just as the song One Night in Bangkok speaks of the “muddy old river and reclining Buddha”, my visit included a temple visit to see the Reclining Buddha as well as a short cruise on the Chao Phraya River. A train ride to the border rounded off this brief but interesting taste of the Thailand.
