Take a walk

It's really about the light.

I remember this image from Thailand because it was the only one I really liked that day I first participated in Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photowalk. My friend Art had organized for a group to do the SKWP that year, and we traipsed around old Bangkok, beside the Chao Phraya river, in small alleys. 

It was late in the day when I stumbled into this temple and saw the monk folding a robe. 

The content is so ordinary it defies the title of ‘favorite photowalk image.’ 

What I like about it is the light. It’s high contrast, which I like, and the rim lighting is what separates the subject from the underexposed background. 

It’s really about light.
