I went out to see what I could see the other day.  I have this big photo-collecting problem: I’m always ready to go after lunch, which is about as bad of a time as one could pick for most pictures.  The only thing left at that time are bugs and flowers (macro stuff) or super high-contrast stuff, like the side of the Group Health office up the street.  I usually find it pretty darn ugly, but in the late day winter sun, the lines and reflection caught my eye.  This was shot with my little 50mm cheapo lens.  I sure do love how sharp it is and the colors always look great too.

One more picture from Wat Phra Kaew. Might be the last, but no promises. This shot is a reflection of the Royal Pantheon (Prasat Phra Dhepbidorn, if my handout is to be believed) in one of the lilypad and water-filled planters around the site. I often forget that some of the best shots aren’t directly at the subject. Reflections sometimes bring a nice change in viewpoint.
