6 In Asia/ Photo Feature

For the Love of Tiles: An Up-Close Look at Bangkok’s Most Beautiful Temples

My Photo Feature series focuses less on words and more on images. See more here.

While visiting Buddhist temples in Thailand, I was completely enamored with the intricate and unique designs I found at each complex. I especially loved the mosaics formed with thousands of pieces of tile in various shapes, sizes and materials. The attention to detail and constant bursts of color blew my mind! Looking through photos after my trip, I found so many close-up shots of all of my favorites. I thought they’d make the perfect Photo Feature for this busy hump day.

Enjoy!

What design elements have you fell in love with on your travels recently?

    OH WOW. If you’ve seen my instagram or some posts on my blog you’ll realise I have a bit of a thing for tiles, so I think I’ve just found my next must-visit destination! These are very different however from the ones I’ve become addicted to in Spain and Italy, I really like how they are three dimentional not flat, and almost sculptural. Your close up photos are great too, really abstract, and really instagramable… (sorry for the awful grammar).

      Aren’t they the best?! It’s so fun seeing all of the different styles, colors, patterns and materials. I just looked through your Santa Chiara post – also SO beautiful! They add so much character and depth to a place. Also, thank you for your photo compliments! I didn’t even realize until after my trip how many close-ups I was taking. 🙂 And no worries about the grammar – I didn’t notice a thing! 🙂

    Wow all those colours! I wonder how long it must have taken to set those different ornaments together back in the day…

      I was thinking the same thing, Vanessa…the attention to detail is so impressive and a little daunting!
