Foreign Friday

Temple Window
Bangkok, Thailand
December 1979
It was difficult to capture the golden color of this beautiful stained-glass window.


This exterior shot gives you a better idea of how the window filled the temple with a golden light. In hindsight, I should have paid more attention to how I was framing the photograph.

  1. Beautiful. Isn't it interesting to see how much alike temples are in any religion?

  2. I really love glass stained windows, especially the older ones. I often feel that modern stained glass windows don't have quite the same feel or beauty. I had no idea that their temples had stained glass either, how neat!

  6. That's a beautiful shot, no matter how you framed it...do you think they used real gold leaf for the frame.

    PS, I have extra clothes, and emergency supplies in both vehicles...generally we don't go to far away from home right now, but we are well prepared when we do. Thanks for being so concerned, I didn't want you to worry.
