The Friday Photo #33 – Bugs, bugs and more bugs

Bugs bugs and more bugs

A bit of a random one this week (hey, it’s my prerogative, right?).

This photo was taken beside the big Buddha shortly after nightfall at the Golden Triangle – the point where the borders of Thailand, Laos and Burma intersect.  At first glance it probably looks like the fevered scrawling of a two year old armed with a crayon and a blank wall, but it’s actually just some well-lit bugs.  Hundreds upon hundreds of well-lit bugs, in fact, hovering around the single lightbulb illuminating the stall of the last remaining hopeful street vendor.

    Great shot! Although just looking at the shot makes my hair stand up at hte back of my neck. I hate any creepy crawly, flying thingy-you'd think I'd get used to them after so long travelling, but yuk!

    A really cool picture though! If I didn't know the title I would of thought it was lots of little bits of wool and thread on a rug!

    Cool shot. I actually really like bugs, at least when it comes to photography. I think they make fantastic subjects, and this is definitely a very cool take on the bug shot.

Would you like to share your thoughts?
