I went to Muak Lek in Saraburi province with my colleagues to celebrate early new year party. It was a one night trip. I like to explore area around accommodation every time I go on a trip like this. This time, I walked around the resort in the morning and I found these tires hanging together. I took many shots with Hipstamatic app in different Lens and films which I like this one the most. Best snap among others.

What needs to be done

I will have a trip in Japan again around the beginning of December so I have to clear up my works and prepare a lot of things for this trip. That’s why I can’t visit the WordPress fellow bloggers as often as I’ve done before. I will leave for Tokyo on this Thursday night (28 Nov 2013) and I will be back to my home on 8 Dec 2013. This will be my 8th trip to Japan which I will go there with my younger brother and our aunt.

During my journey, I hope to update my blog everyday as always. However, I might need to set the schedule for some posts in case I’m on the move. After I get back, I will try to catch up with all of you.

 

The remixed sky

The Monday phoneography challenge has been canceled this week due to Thanksgiving holiday. However, I still have some photos snapped by iPhone5s and used some applications to create something like this.

Flying

I’m fond of looking at the sky and take photos of it. Sometimes, I might sit in my car and gaze at the sky through window or windshield. This photo was one of those times. I noticed birds flying past while I was taking photos of the cloud and sky. I tried to snap as fast as I could to get at least one bird in the photos and the above photo was the best from my attempts. [My Best Photo of the Week (MBPOTW) Challenge – Week13]

My friend and I found these short Jizo statues at Hase-dera Temple in Kamahura after we’ve visited Daibutsu at Kotokuin Temple. We were quite surprised with the height and faces of these statues as we never saw something like this before. And the we found hundreds of small Jizo statues when we walked further.

Based on information in wikipedia, those hundreds of statues were left here by parents mourning offspring lost to miscarriage, stillbirth, or abortion.

After paying respect to the statues, we then walked along the Hydrangea Path and met other three little Jizos.

Apart from the jizos, there were many interesting things to see around the temple area. We really enjoyed our time there.
