Photographer's Note

The "complex" of the Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew, is probably the "highlight" of Thailand's capital, Bangkok. Besides the luxury of the old palace, you 'll see there one of the 3 most important Bhuddist temples in Bangkok, Wat Phra Kaew (the other two are Wat Pho and Wat Arun), also known as "Temple of the Emerald Bhuddha". The travels and adventures of Emerald Buddha (or Phra Kaew Morakot, a statue probably made of jasper and not emerald) could be the scenario of the next sequel of Indiana Jones. The colours and the ornament of the temples are of extreme beauty and there are so many gold leafs that you will be tempted

* I cropped the bottom of the photo and changed a little bit the perspective as my friend Shailendra (s10001in) suggested. You can see the result in workshop.
