Thailand - Tuk Tuks and Lotus
Buddhism is woven into the fabric of Thai culture, a strong and beautiful element that give strength and character to the people and their nation. The lotus flower is a special symbol to Buddhist, a pristine flower that emerges from the muddy depths of still water. It symbolises the journey towards enlightenment as we emerge from Samsara.

Photography for Travellers
Ewen's guiding principles are simple...
"Go slow. Get closer. Look for the light."
"Photography is about showing other people how to see, to share the beauty of life. It's not a job, it's a lifestyle. We only get one lifetime, one chance to add some light into the world. Photography competitions are mostly silly. Cats are excellent."
