Capture the Colour

I’m entering the Capture the Colour Travel Photography Contest! What a cool way to illuminate the colors of the world. I was nominated by my friend and fellow Chiang Mai blogger, Lani Cox, and thought I’d take a shot at it. Not that I have a pro camera like these other guys, but it’s all about the story, right?

Hello Judges, here are my submissions! Cheers!

About redmudstain

An American Expat in Chiang Mai, Thailand ​ Not willing to settle down just yet - I'm only in my mid-twenties after all - I took a leap across the big big pond and fell onto Thai soil. Well, it was a little less spontaneous than that... ​ After a grueling application process, Princeton in Asia bestowed upon me a one-year fellowship with The Life Skills Development Foundation in Chiang Mai. A renowned child rights non-profit foundation in Northern Thailand, TLSDF is giving me the opportunity to research critical social issues, travel across field sites in the nation's upper regions, converse with the international human rights community and of course, learn Thai! ​ This is my life - the beauty, struggle, culture shock and adventure - in the charming city of Chiang Mai.

  1. Great photos! Different photos for “red” and “yellow” comes to mind (thinking about Thai politics!), but you “red” stands out the most to me.

  2. Nice to see you participated 🙂 I like the green one. But green is my favorite color, so I’m a wee bit bias.
