I was located in Bangkok again and this time, it was a different weekend for me as I have had my friends who brought me out of Bangkok city area into the Northern part which was approximately 2 hours’ drive with resting intervals in between. For a foreigner like me, I don’t think I will have the chance to visit the sunflower field even if I visit Thailand for millions of times as tourist without engaging any locals’ help.
I must thank my friend and my other new-found friends who are also avid photographers for letting me to have a chance to enjoy Thailand like a local, literally. It was definitely a great experience that I would love to have! The journey is what I would have expected, a long way on the road towards our destinations and upon nearing the fields, we were already greeted by beautiful sights of sunflowers that cannot be missed as their color truly stands out of the greens.
It has been a long time since I last stepped out under the scorching hot sun without any form of protection on my skin, so it became a little intolerable for me to stay under sun for longer than 2 hours. The fields were filled with local visitors but not crowded as I like. I have always heard people telling me that sunflowers can put a smile on one’s face. I kind of agree with that as the sunflowers have indeed brought laughter and fun to the visitors there.
This post will end the year 2012, indeed, this has been a quick but fulfilling year when I have started moving towards sharing more of my photography works here in my blog. I am definitely looking forward to the year 2013 with greater photography opportunities! Cheers!
Happy New Year!
