Ayutthaya was the capital of Thailand in the 14th century. Many of the ruins are surprisingly intact. This was a particularly lucky day for me as the sky was great.

I loved the juxtaposition of what I’ve known as a Latin American dance against the backdrop of traditional Chinese architecture. And the stoic expressions made it an even more interesting shot to me. I believe this was taken in ZhongShan Park. This park is alive with various dance groups, older people playing board games and kids running and playing.
