Wat Florida Dhammaram Temple – A place for colors

Life Travel

After we fell in love with photography, we fell in love with colors. So looking for colors around us becomes part of our day to day task. Then when we heard about this Thai temple- Wat Florida Dhammaram, we had no hesitation to go there to search for colors.

We ran into the monk when we just parked our car. We said Hi and carefully asked for permission to take photos inside the temple. Very generously, he not only allowed us to take photos, but also modeled for us. (Well, we did not ask him to sign a release!!!) We were amazed by the color of the temple, and of course, Zac shot many HDR. We would recommend any photographers going there for photos in a quiet week day. The temple will be busy for weekend worship.

Fall Roadtrip to Great Smoky Mountains National Park
Here is a quick vacation blog post as a break from all of the weddings and engagements I have been posting lately. Well, of course with us, the reason for the travel was a wedding itself. Last Wednesday I had a Pakistani wedding up in Kingsport, Tennessee at the Meadowview Marriott so Betty and Miles came with me for a quick overnight vacation. We drove up to Johnson City/Kingsport on Wednesday in time for the wedding and then took a leisurely route through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on the way back. We really wanted to hit the Blue Ridge Parkway but maybe next time, or next year when Miles is a bit older as well. We could only s ...
Beijing Day 3: Summer Palace & Winter Palace
Here is our long awaited (or not) follow up blog post to what else we were up to in Beijing during our May 2010 trip to China. Day 1 was the Temple of Heaven, Day 2 we headed out to Badaling to see the Ming Tombs and the Great Wall of China. Next up on our list of historic sites was the Summer Palace and the Winter Palace (Yuan Ming Yuan) on Day 3 of our time in Beijing. The Summer Palace was pretty packed when we were there, with many other Chinese tourists and school children seeing this historic site. Much like the Temple of Heaven, the Summer Palace historic site also includes a huge national park area with many smaller buildings and t ...
Personal | Recent Happenings With Miles! Day Out With Thomas 2013 & School Carnival
Just doing a quick post from what we've been up to lately - besides being up to our ears in weddings! Seriously, this Summer/Fall season has been I-N-S-A-N-E! Well I guess it's like this every year, as the end is finally in sight! December and January only have 2 weddings each month, it's not a month of 4 weddings with 3 of them being 3 or 4 day Indian Wedding =). A few weeks ago we took Miles to the Jungle Jam carnival at his preschool and then to the Day Out With Thomas event down in Cordele, GA! Even though we play with him all day around downtown here it's fun to get out once in a while too. You may have already seen these photos on Insta ...
