The place between earth and heaven
I have to say that Thailand is one of my favorite places so far. Everything from nature to architecture and people is special there. Thailand is the most Buddhist country in the world and I could feel that everyone was trying to be nice, polite, and helpful as they know that they work on their own Karma. For centuries in this country known as Siam, hundreds of temples and towns were built here. Today many of them become ruins which makes it even more interesting.
I made a journey of more than two thousand kilometers driving a 115cc scooter. I know it sounds crazy but on the other side, I hade 20 days so I really could go slowly. I have traveled through most of the southern territory moving between national parks. Going through the smallest roads I could find so I had a really good opportunity to see the real life of local people and explore the nature of this country.
Un lugar entre la tierra y paraiso
Tengo que decir que Tailandia es uno de mis lugares favoritos hasta ahora. Todo, desde la naturaleza hasta la arquitectura y la gente, es especial allí. Tailandia es el país más budista del mundo y pude sentir que todos trataban de ser amables, educados y serviciales, ya que saben que trabajan en su propio Karma. Durante siglos en este país conocido como Siam, cientos de templos y pueblos fueron construidos aquí. Hoy en día muchos de ellos se convierten en ruinas, lo que lo hace aún más interesante.
Hice un viaje de más de dos mil kilómetros conduciendo un ciclomoto de 115cc. Sé que parece una locura, pero en el otro lado, pasé 20 días para poder ir despacio. Viajé por la mayor parte del territorio del sur moviéndome entre los parques nacionales. Pasando por los caminos más pequeños que pude encontrar, tuve una muy buena oportunidad de ver la vida real de la gente local y explorar la naturaleza de este país.
TIPS BEFORE DECIDING
- Although it is not a rule of a thumb, we do recommend selecting night and evening photographs for your bedroom, or other places where you spend late hours.
- Abstract photos and details can be mixed in great numbers. Keep in mind to preserve some balance of colors between photographs.
- Decorative photographs can be used to add some color and interest to any empty spaces such as the kitchen or hallway.
- Landscapes and seascapes can be treated as windows so big sizes are recommended for them.
- Before hanging, arrange all photos flat on the ground to judge the effect.
- Group pictures by color or subject. you can also change the color or the subject by introducing another photo in the middle that connects two different photos. For example, you could hang the sea-scape and the photo of a white village by introducing a photo of a house on the beach.
- Treat the wall as a unique composition. If you have two photos of a coast, it would be a better idea to put them face to face, instead of back to back. The viewer's eye will stay longer contemplating the views. The symmetry of a set gives an elegant and clean look to the wall.
- Consider both: vertical and horizontal symmetry.
- Fix a small piece of double-coated tape in the bottom of the frame, so it does not tilt!
- In a row: By placing an odd number of pictures in a horizontal line to each other give a sense of space. This works well in hallways or stairwells.
- You can also arrange multiple pictures in geometric shapes like a square, rectangular and even oval. Make sure that inside those shapes there is some vertical or horizontal alignment for the pictures.
