Monks, young and old making their early morning alms collection, mostly of prepared food that they eat when they return to the temple. People look out for the monks from their homes, markets or certain places where they know monks usually pass to make their offerings. The food is placed in the bowls that the monks carry around after which the monk chants a blessing before moving on. For Buddhist, the practice of giving plays an important part in developing spirituality. #alms   #monks   #buddhism   #bangkok   #thailand

Victory Monument, where I get off the SkyTrain and take the #538 bus to home. It's Bangkok's busiest traffic circle where most of its public transportation depart from to the outskirts of the city and neighbouring provinces. #victorymonument   #bangkok   #thailand   #publictransport

Thai Buddhist Monk inauguration ceremony. Young Thai men become monks for a short time usually one month, so that their parents can receive many blessings and an easier afterlife. At the end of the ceremony, they will change to saffron robes and receive their blessings as monks. #monks   #buddhism   #thailand   #temple   #spirituality

Salt farmers of Samut Sakhon. After a few weeks, most of the seawater has evaporated and a crystallised salt bed is formed. Here the workers are breaking up this bed. After, they will push the salt into heaps and leave to dry some more overnight before carrying to a storage area in the morning. #saltfarming   #samutsakhon   #thailand   #seasalt    ‬ #salt

It takes a #Khon  dance performer over 30 minutes to get dressed, this is because the costumes are not individually tailored. Following a series of wrapping and tying the final adjustments are made by temporarily sewing the costume on the dancer for a tailored fit. In its early history, a costume such as this would be quite expensive to make. This method helped the theatre to save on cost so that different dancers can wear the same costume. A tradition that is still practised today. Having the opportunity to see this demonstrated it is no way possible for the dancer to use the toilet after this is done. #Bangkok   #thailand

Rice farmers carrying cut rice for threshing. In the north of Thailand, most of the rice harvesting are done manually. After the rice is cut using a sickle, it is left to dry for a few days. This allows easier removal of the rice and gives higher yield. The workers then tie the rice into bundles for easy carrying and hand threshing by beating against the ground. #ricefarming   #harvesting   #farmers   #thailand   #ricefield

I kindly asked this woman to take her photo. There was something about her appearance that I could not help to notice. Be proud of who you are, your job and age do not define how you should look. Love yourself. Photo of a #vendor   selling dried fish at #KlongToeyMarket , #Bangkok   #Thailand

A street food vendor early in the morning, her stall prepared and ready to sell. This is a very common scene in markets for food vendors when their food is prepared off location. #streetfood    #KlongToeyMarket   , #Bangkok

Young girls exiting the Besakih temple after making offerings and worship in the evening. Pura Besakih is an extensive complex of 23 separate but related temples built on six levels that terrace the slopes of Mount Agung (a stratovolcano). It is the largest and holiest temples of Hindu religion in Bali with some temples dating back at least 2000 years. ‪ #girls   #children ‪   #purabesakih‬   #temple      #bali    #indonesia‬
