Weekly Photo Challenge: In the Background


Here is a blurry scene of the couple in the background, bride in red and groom in black, with the bouquet as the “centerpiece”.

In the Background: The places that we pass through day after day, or even once in a lifetime, leave in their small way, echoes and traces of themselves upon us. But so often when taking self portraits or pictures of friends, the places themselves become a soft blurred mush of indistinct semi-nothingness, the limelight stolen by our smiling faces. In today’s challenge, let’s turn the tables. Take a picture of yourself or someone else as a shadow, a reflection, or a lesser part of a scene, making the background, or — as in the example above — the foreground, the center of attention.


One Night in Bangkok

Last night before I felt an angel slidin next to me, I glanced at the lotus flower ready to bloom. This morning as I walked by, it warned me of the devil walking next to me.
It started with morning glory and catfish with basil, and it could make a hard man humble.

With spicy clams, the tough guys tumble.
And finally, the tea girls, bring them warm and sweet.

Or was I just hearing that 80’s song playing somewhere…One Night in Bangkok. Murray Head might have only spent a night in this city and wrote a song about it, but truthfully, Bankok is simply an amazing city.
