There is a story to many of my images and this one is no exception. I was walking around Wat Suthet which is at the base of the ‘Golden Mount’ in Bangkok.
I noticed a group of monks going into the temple and decided to see why. When I got to the door I saw many monks sitting inside. I was quite excited as this type of image I had wanted to get for a long time.
Quietly, I set myself up to capture the image. My camera has a silent shutter and I squeezed the button and then, with a big grin on my face, turned to leave.
Whilst I had noticed the scaffolding surrounding the temple, I had forgotten all about it as I was taking the image. The crossbar of the scaffolding just outside the door was at forehead height and, you guessed it, bang. As the blow was quite painful a, relatively, loud expletive escaped my lips. I gathered my composure, dared not look back and carefully slipped away.
