A pelican and fisherman face off on the pier in Avalon, CA.  The pelican moved closer and closer as the fisherman reeled in his catch.  The fisherman eventually had to wave his jacket around to drive the pelican way.  Both of them were very calm and I had the impression that this was a common ritual for both of them.

Some of the estimated 10,000 floating lanterns released during the annual Yee Peng Festival at the Lanna Dhutanka Buddhist Center near Chiang Mai, Thailand.

I have seen some awesome things in Thailand, but this has to rank near the very top.  The sight of all those lanterns, and the over atmosphere of the event, were breathtaking.  In you are in Thailand in October I really recommend that you make the effort to attend this ceremony.

Railing at Wat Pa Maha Chedio Kaew, more commonly know as "The Million Bottle Temple" or "Wat Lan Kuad" in Thai.  This Buddhist temple about 300 miles from Bangkok is decorated with more than a million recycled bottles (most of them, ironically, beer bottles).

Thanks, +Albert Wong.  It was worth walking around the rest of the day in wet shoes to get the shots at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

A man poses for a picture on the street in the Chinatown section of Bangkok, Thailand.  He looks, well, grumpy, but was very gracious in allowing me to photograph him.
