Demons Supporting the Prang, Thailand

This travel photo shows statues lining the lower tier of Wat Arun Rajwararam, a Buddhist temple translated as “Temple of the Dawn” in Bangkok Thailand. These Yaksha, or “Demons Supporting the Prang” (a Khmer style spire), were captured using a Nikon P80. As this is a far less visited temple than many others in Bangkok, the sparse crowds made it easy to imagine this sacred space predated the establishment of Bangkok as a city.

Steve Smith inherited the wanderlust and has always needed to see what’s around the next corner. His college days were spent enjoying many memorable (and cheap) forays into Mexico sleeping under the stars. Today these excursions are typically press trips and hotels, but gathering unique experiences by getting to know places and people rather than observing as tourists is still their approach to travel. After numerous journeys to North/Latin/South America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, he believes this is the true way to experience different cultures.
