Today’s theme for #FriFotos is gold, and the country that immediately popped into my head was Thailand. From the Grand Palace to the various Wats and Buddha statues throughout the country, there is no shortage of gold.
Of all the golden photos I have from my visit to Thailand in 2011, my favorite is this one from the staircase of Wat Pra Singh. We stopped at the temple after a trip to Tiger Kingdom in Chiang Mai, and on our way back to the hotel asked our driver to bring us to a nearby temple. It was simply stunning, but as I took off my shoes to enter the Wat, what struck my eye was the detail of the staircase. The result is this very golden photo.
