crematorium

The royal crematorium of King Bhumibol Adulyadej at Sanam Luang.

It’s been’ve over the year since the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej passed away.  Now we have a new King, Rama X, His Majesty Maha Vajiralongkorn.  For the next year, 2018, we look forward to the coronation of His Majesty.  It should a sight to see for this celebration.

Why is this my favorite photo of the year, even though it has not been published until now.  Because this picture will remind me of the late King who will remain forever in my heart and mind.

Side Note: My computer was acting up and the Lightroom application have been corrupted.  However, I’ll get it repaired and in the meantime I’ll still be posting some photos.

Also another note, I realize that I chase photo challenges because they are my inspiration for my art. I’ll still chase photo challenges, but rather more randomly and inspirationally.     Thank you for following me in 2017 and hope you’ll be back in 2018.
