Ko Samet Colors.

Last weekend I escaped the gray smog that had swallowed Bangkok, and traveled south to Ko Samet. The trip was worth it for the colors alone; foamy turquoise surf washed over blinding white sand, and fuchsia bougainvillea burned against a lush backdrop of emerald palms. After a day of exploring, I came across this electric blue spirit house, draped in pink ribbons and plastic marigolds. Shaded beneath it were offerings from the tropical isle: pale green bananas, and giant white seashells.

Your colourful photos have lifted my spirits on a dull day in Bristol. I'm cooking Thai this weekend too - will let you know when I post about it.

I'm not sure whether to love you because you remind me of where I used to be, or hate you because you remind me of where I used to be. Beautiful pictures. I am green.

The vibrancy of the colors in your pictures reminds me of the brilliantly colored homes on Pulau Pangkor. We should go.

I've given you a mention on my latest post on cooking Thai - on looking at some of your great photos I think I may still have a way to go on food photography :), but perhaps you have the advantage over me - those Thai streetmarkets are so much more photogenic than a Bristol dinner table.
