Wat Pho, 1969 and 2016

Photos by Keith D. Jones, 1969.

Back in May, I posted photos from my walk through the Buddhist temple at Wat Pho, Bangkok, Thailand. My Dad had his own visit to Wat Pho in 1969, while stationed in Thailand during the Vietnam War.

His black and white photos captured fascinating scenes from Thailand, often focusing on people more than places. I contrast this with my own photos, which often tend to be places or street art rather than people. An example is below, where my Dad captured a performance during a street festival in Bangkok.
