Invader and incense

Fourteen years ago a small field of lilies was abloom right on the spot where that condominium stands. Remember Big Yellow Taxi? "... they paved paradise, and put up a parking lot?" I call this building The Invader. As I walk by every morning I daydream of that lily field.

This Spirit house is my side view as soon as I reach the computers to sign in at work. If the wind blows my way I get a whiff of incense. It's easy to get used to the fragrance, not the high rise.

Incense sticks perpetually burn in temples too. I took notice of the one behind this part of the highway as it's where my boss's Dad will be cremated come March 30th. I was on a moving bus opposite this lane. The teapot is a serendipity :)

Students in their scout uniform pass by the temple after school. The yellow and green vehicle is a government taxi. You can ride the red bus all day for free. Guy with a blue tie is running for Bangkok governor. Election time is around the corner in my world.


  1. That blue tie should assure the gentleman a BIG win! Thanks for sharing these blues.

    Happy Blue Monday, Hazel.

    1. Nice thought, Sally. I'll let you know if that tie should prove a lucky charm for the gentleman :)

  2. beautiful shots from your world.

  3. I wish I too could smell the incense.

  4. Nice pics and I too wish I too could smell the incense!
    Have a great day!


  5. This is a nice place with fragrance all around.

  6. I agree. The choice of a lily field for a condo. Keep the lily fields. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  7. Love the serendipity.
    Don't love the huge high rise that took away the flowers though.

  8. You're so right - sometimes it's better to leave a green space!

  11. I am going to a Thai Festival, Songkran, and most likely, they will that incense, too. Am excited to see all the colors!


  12. Your photos made me feel as if I were on vacation for a brief moment. I love photos like yours where you really get a feel for the city/country from looking at them. Thank you, thank you.

  13. It is sad when nice, open space becomes developed into uninspired architecture

  14. Incense reminds me of my childhood.

    Internet is a Blessing

    As usual, I am late but I am doing my best to catch up.
