..from Krung Thep

shoti (somewhere in, China) on 11 April 2010 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

Krung Thep( City of Angels) a.k.a. Bangkok

The temple in the background is called Wat Benchamabophit (Wat = temple). The monks here go out in front of the temple to beg for food in early morning. That monk walking looks like he had reached his quota, so he went back to the monastery.

Excellent depth and I just love deeply contrasted pictures such as this Shoti.

Wonderful colors, and the birds add another (scary) feeling! If it were my picture, I would try to straighten up the lines in some degree.
