Photographer's Note

Very impressive is the courtyard with countless Buddha statues along the wall at the mid level prayer hall of the temple complex Kek Lok Si in Air Hitam. It is a real spiritual experience for the devotees, which come here to pay their respect to Buddha. Despite the colorfulness of the huge complex, there is an unique atmosphere of peace and reflection of the past, presence and future. It certainly is a good place for meditation, to find to the inner self of a person.

This picture I have selected and dedicated to all the Thai people, especially in Greater Bangkok where the ongoing red shirt protests have paralyzed the capital. After 4 weeks of fierce demonstrations and occupying the center of business and shopping in the tourist belt, Rajaprasong, the government finally is using force to disperse them. Unfortunately the demonstrators have weapons and are fighting gun battles and throwing bombs at the army charged to disperse them under emergency rule since yesterday. It really was a black Saturday, 15 killed and 678 wounded, but the battle will continue ...
