    Shot these a couple of weeks ago at Wat Buddhamongkolnimit with my E-P2 and 28mm OM Zuiko. Not great shots, but a record of a lovely event, and not awful either. The monks are receiving alms from the guests in a ceremony outside, after chanting inside. The whole thing left me with a warm glow, determined to visit the wat again. I left my new lenses at home because Songkran is a water festival, and I'd heard it could get very wet. In the event, it didn't, though the kids were about, soaking each other with squirt guns.

    The woman in yellow seemed to be everywhere -- being helpful. The gentleman inside the temple just exhibited an earnest kindness that appealed to me.
