Wat Arun

From even further than this picture, like from across the river, this temple appears as if it is carved unadorned stone.

The closer you get the more colourful it becomes, the less “classic”, and for me, the less interesting. I’ve always preferred the old broken stone, time worn ruins; I suspect those beautiful Grecian structures, had I seen them when young and painted (the ruins that is, not me), would have disappointed me.
