Many times I grab a one-off photo of something during our travels. A nice photo, but not enough to wrap a blog post around. Tonight I’ll post some recent photos with a little description just to get them out there for you!
Mai owns about 5 acres of rice field not far from her family home. She took me there a few weeks ago and while I set up to get this shot of a clump of bamboo she chatted with the workers who were harvesting her rice for her…by hand!
Temple at Phu Thok, a 360m high outcropping a short drive from us. It was very hot that day and there are about 800 steps to get up there. We liked the view from where we were!
Some flowers climbing a fence post right outside out living room window.
Buddha statue. Not a religious site. Somebody’s front yard in Nongkhai.
A farmer Tuk Tuk! They go a little faster than a walking pace, have no operable lights and are all over the highways at dusk as the farmers head home for the evening.
Harvested rice field next to a rubber plantation.
Beautiful evening panorama just outside So Phisai
Decorative pewter belts at Nakha Silk Market near Udon Thani
Nice pastel coloured blouses at Nakha Silk Market
A view of the main mall at Nakha Silk Market
Entrance to a Buddhist temple in the woods near Bueng Kan City

I retired after a 30-year career with an engineering consulting firm in Toronto and recently moved to Thailand to marry my fiancee of 10 years and settle down to an exciting new life. I'm an amateur radio operator (VE3HLS in Canada) and hope to become on here eventually. I'm also an amateur photographer and hope to be very busy photographing and showing you my beautiful surroundings. My blog will contain entries on all three subjects, so I hope you don't mind picking through the boring stuff to get to what interests you.
Oh. About bueng-ken.com. We live in Bueng Kan province, which is about as far as you can get from Bangkok as you travel northeast. I just thought it would be clever to combine my name with the province's name!
