Photographer's Note

Today a complete change in my postings, something a little less structured but relating to the rhythms of life.
As a traveller one is often confronted with customs, cultures and beliefs at variance with one's own. I have visited SE Asia several times and I am always struck by the faith that provides daily structure to the lives of the people living there. Unlike the culture I grew up in where religion or belief was an add on to life, I found that faith was an everyday concept. It was not a "put on your best clothes on Sunday" kind of thing. I saw people bowing their heads as they passed a shrine. I saw people making an offering or praying at a shrine on their way home from work. I saw children running and playing in temple precincts. This shot shows offerings and the evidence of faith and prayer outside a small bar on Koh Samui. Food for thought?
