It’s A New Year!

It’s a new year, and time for new adventures!  In 2011 I barely even left the state (I think I went down to Ohare airport once).  This year I’m aiming to at least make it to Austin at some point.  Hopefully in 2012 a Wings Eye View can show some of America.  Until then I will celebrate with some burning incense from the temple of SriChang.  These were burning in front of the line of Buddha’s shown in A Buddha A Day.

Kanchantaburi Temple at Night

The temple in Kanchantaburi

The temple in Kanchantaburi, Thailand at night.

I can’t stress enough how beautiful Kanchantaburi was.  We were there during Songkran so I did not feel comfortable going to the temple service for a holy event I didn’t understand, so instead I waited outside and took photographs.  It was amazing how many stars were out so far away from the cities.  I often go out to the country or the state parks in Wisconsin.  Yet up in the mountains I felt even more removed from the influences of the city.  I was amazed how many stars I was able to pick up on film, the image is a bit grainy but still captures the stillness of the night.
