Leah and I took an excursion to the old, walled city in Chiang Mai this morning. There are a huge number of temples in within the walls, so monk sitings are very common. There were two different color robes that I saw. One was a beautiful bright orange and the other was a more subdued, but also beautiful orangy-brown.
When I was processing these images I put them into photomatix to process them as 1-image HDR pics. I thought I would leave them in color, but when I experimented with the Artistic BW preset, I decided to leave them as BW.
It was hot and even though we enjoyed walking around for a few hours we decided that once you've seen one, or maybe two, temples you've pretty much seen them all. (that's a little tongue-in-cheek) So we decided to head back and find a place to eat on the way.
