I usually don't go this many years into the past but I delved into the archives this evening to revisit Thailand. With a few friends there now or in the recent past I've been feeling nostalgic so I reprocessed this photo taken at Ayutthaya in black and white to highlight the texture and framing. Ayutthaya was the former capital and it enjoyed prosperity though the 18th century when a massive army from Burma laid siege and eventually sacked the city. The ruins remain and are stunningly beautiful in their current state of disrepair and one can only imagine the striking beauty of this city in its prime.
