Shots along the way

13 April 2012 – The Songkran (traditional new year) festival has begun in Thailand. For the next few days, the streets of every Thai city, town and village will be filled with people young and old happily splashing water on each other so as to cleanse away any bad that happened during the previous year. While the festivities have become something of a big, wet party in some places, many still celebrate in the traditional way by splashing fragrant water on images of Buddha, such as seen in this shot from a Chiang Mai Songkran parade.

    You can definitely see your expertise within the paintings you write. The arena hopes for even more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to say how they believe. At all times go after your heart.
