Editor’s Note: These photographs may look old-fashioned now, but when we first started posting photos most images were scanned in from film negatives, which has a very different color gamut than digital, and the resolution on the internet was very poor. Images needed to be only a few kilobytes so that you could download them with a phone modem; now they are hundreds of times bigger. Learn more about our original film photographs. Fortunately, I found the original images for this pictorial. I hope you enjoy this trip back in time.
Thailand – A Photographer’s Eden
Blessed with exquisite natural beauty, and possibly the friendliest population on the planet, Thailand is a joy to behold regardless of which senses you choose to employ during your visit. However, it does not yield its fruits without some amount of labor. The oppressive heat, pollution and fetid squalor of Bangkok, for example, often alienate the first-time visitor who fails to delve beneath its surface. But for those who linger and acclimate, there are rich rewards. A continuous visual feast is inevitably laid out before the eyes of anyone present to witness and, if you happen to be holding a camera, then your work is cut out for you.
