Photographer's Note

Bangkok has been called the Venice of the east. It lies along the delta of the Chao Phraya River; originally travel around the area was by boat as there were no roads. Then some of the foreign consuls complained that they couldn't get their necessary exercise, horseback riding, without roads. Rama IV complied and the first road was built in 1860.

Naturally, my husband, the aging hippie had to visit Kao San Road. Then we headed out to look for a jazz club. I'm only last about 30 minutes to an hour walking in this weather, but before I wimped out, we passed over the prettiest klong (canal) I've seen in Bangkok. After a death defying dash across a busy road, I captured a view of the prettiest klong I've seen in Bangkok. I think the tree is a Poinciana Tree, but I think the tamarind tree also has red flowers.

UPDATE: Don't bother critiquing this one, just go straight to Danos' excellent workshop. I'd delete it but it wouldn't be fair to such a great workshop.
