Bangkok Colors: Blue-green

While not really a single color on its own, this family of hues reflect Bangkok's aquatic nature. The faded aqua doors and chipped sea-foam shutters of old houses are revealing of Bangkok's past, when the city was originally aquatic, and navigated by swampy canals. And while perhaps more commuters now take the bus or the skytrain than the river ferries or khlong boats, this past is practically relived during the rainy season, when the sois and highways flood with rainwater.

Lovely as usual, and I love the idea of an "aquatic" color scheme. I'm a pisces myself...

Hello guys,
Would you please help me choose a spot to vacation in your area or somewhere nearby? As you know I'm in Seoul. I have a month to chill in March. I would like a very quiet place, no tourists, and very cool cafes, some art galleries, etc. Warm people. A secluded beach would be great too. Thanks.

Your photos are really nice. I enjoyed the floral and tropical fruits ones the best.

Blue & green color theme is neat. These colors remind me of the ocean and also our precious planet Earth.

I will be back to visit and check out more of your lovely photos. Keep up the good job!
