Travel theme: Statues

I haven’t participated in one of these in a while but when I saw what the theme was this week over at WheresMyBackpack I couldn’t resist; statues.

Having spent the past 18 months or so in Thailand, I have taken a huge amount of photographs of statues at the many temples that I have visited.  It’s almost obligatory when you visit a temple to take a picture of the statue even if that means that you end up with hundreds of very similar images of buddhas stacked up in your hard drive!

Here are some of my favourite statue images from the depths of my temple files.

Confessions of an office fetishist

I don’t know what it is. It could be the smell of hot, melting plastic. It could be the way the final product emerges, all shiny and colourful or the fact that it will stay pristine for years to come.

Whatever it is, it’s time to confess;

I love to laminate.


Does anyone else out there have any strange office fetishes? Perhaps the paper guillotine tickles your fancy?
