Beautiful Beast - the Thai Elephant

Thailand - the Thai elephant has been revered for centuries. It is the symbol of the nation. At many temples, you will find images of elephants - representing strength and wisdom. The Thai elephant is still an important part of the culture - for many it is still a magical animal and deserving of respect.Upload from July 27, 2012I enjoyed looking into the elephants eyes - I’m sure if the elephants could speak, they would have many stories to tell.Upload from July 27, 2012

Welcome to my travel photo blog. Photography has been a part of my life for a long time – back in the day the Pentax Super Program was always near at hand. But it wasn’t until I started travelling around the world that photography became a vehicle for me to show others about the absolutely amazing and complex world we live in. My hope is to share with you glimpses of what I’ve seen. Enjoy!
