Sunny Sunday

26 Sep

I got up yesterday, with the warm sun beating down on my face.

As I walked out the door with my iPod on both ears, I was greeted with rays of sunshine.
Breakfast was first on the list of things to do. I headed to “the guy” for my Thai style “breakfast of champions”.



I realized just yesterday, how much music can do to brighten up your day. I started my day off to a recently downloaded “Essentials Mix” by Kaskade.  With every step I felt more and more alive.

I came to the conclusion that Sundays like these are not meant to be spent wasted inside cold doors, studying away. So after food I grabbed my notes and headed to the park to study.

As I walked up to Lumpini Park, I knew right away I had made the right decision.


I was immediately surrounded by big green trees, body of water, and people everywhere enjoying their sunday afternoon.


As I strolled down the walkway, a group of people caught my eye.
All huddled around, cameras in hand, and lens pointed in one direction.
As I crept up slowly, I realized that they all were surrounding a beautiful girl. I quickly realized that this was most likely some type of photo shoot for a magazine or ad of some sort.
I thought about it for a second, then decided to join in on the fun.

If anyone in Thailand wants a photo shoot, Lumpini Park is the place to go.
If anyone would like any photographs let me know, I would love to have a little photo shoot of my own in Lumpini.

After about 5 minutes I realized that my small body and lens were no match for the professionals, and I carried on my way.


I found a nice tree to sit under, and started my studies.
As always though, I couldn’t help but find more and more things to photograph.



After a while I decided to keep on my way, and explore the rest of the park.


I ran into the true Thai “Caveman”.


Ironically he was pushing a car tire down the road.
There must be some strange correlation between cavemen and cars.



After a walk around the park I decided it was time to head back and get some food.

Before I knew it, the clock stuck 7 and it was time for Formula 1 in Singapore.
One of the perks of living South East Asia, is that the races are at a normal time and on TV.

So we all came into one room, ordered pizza, and watched the race.


Defiantly a nice way to end a great weekend.

    Hey man, I don’t know if you’ll remember this day but the caveman/tire picture reminded me of it. It was alex’s bday… or maybe andre’s but either way we were all at their house and remember how they lived on that hill and we found a tire and started rolling it down the hill? I have a vague memory of the tire losing control and gaining speed down the hill and all of us kids were just dying laughing. This was the same day we were convinced that we saw a garbage bag down the creek with a body in it hahahhaha. oh the memoriess
