Bangkok in Film: Kodak Portra 400

Day 2 of our Bangkok trip takes us to Wat Phra Kaew and Wat Pho temples. Both are mesmerizing and vibrantly colorful.

TIPS:

  1. Bring a wide angle lens! I only had my 50mm lens on this trip and I was sorely missing my 24mm as there was a lot of instances that would be better using a wide angle lens.
  2. Be aware about the dress codes in this temples. Act and dress respectfully.
  3. Stay clear of people giving you “free” corn for the pigeons as they will ask for 150 bhat per handful.

Grand temples, giant Buddha, mythical creatures and huge statues everywhere. Thailand is very rich in culture and symbolism.

The Reclining Buddha.

I’m not sure if this is a lotus. Lotus represents purity of thought. It grows in muddy water rising and blooming above the murk, symbolizing enlightenment.

This is my favorite of the roll.

Thanks for viewing!

Up next is Ektar. 🙂
