I survived. I made it half way around the world and back. Plane travel still blows my mind! So does Thailand. What a marvelous place, so full of energy. So much energy bursting at the seams, it’s hard not to smile. Apparently, it’s also hard to take any photos because there’s so much fun stuff to do. I took my nice Canon 7D all the way to Thailand and I only took the two pictures you see below. And that’s OK. I had my iPhone and Instagram, after all.
I was compelled to take these pictures, because I wanted to capture something else I found in Thailand- stillness. My favorite town from the trip was Pai, in the North. There is a peacefulness there that effortlessly settles into the air. The light, the sounds of chanting in the hills, everything just slows down. I didn’t buy many souvenirs, but that stillness and pace is something that I am trying to bring back with me to my everyday in Los Angeles. It’s so very easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle.
Thank you, Thailand.
