Still Life in Moving Vehicles: Royal Barge Procession

Still Life in Moving Vehicles: Royal Barge Procession

The only moving vehicles that I photographed today were boats. You see, this afternoon, I had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness the Royal Barge Procession gliding down the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok in celebration of HM King Bhumibol Adulyadej's 85th birthday. The last time that this type of procession was organized was in 2006, so it's a rare occasion. Comprised of a flotilla of fifty-two traditional Thai-style barges with a total of 2,200 sailors on board, it was indeed a spectacular sight. I still have goosebumps. If you're based in Bangkok or are visiting and missed it, don't worry. Today was just a dress rehearsal. The official procession is next Friday, November 9th. Tickets are available
