Vientiane in Gold and Orange
One of my favourite ways of escaping the heat and noise of busy Vientiane streets was visiting the local temples. The Wat Ong Teu temple is hidden behind a large, ornamented gate, just off the main road. There was something relaxing about feeling the coolness of of the temple's floor as I was walking around it bare feet, admiring the wonderfully rich architecture. As I took a walk around the temple, I saw a monk passing by, his bright orange robe contrasting against the intricate gold ornaments of the temple's door. I was lucky enough to capture this moment on my camera!
