Wat Arun, the Temple of Dawn, rises over Bangkok’s Chao Phraya River, theoretically catching the first morning light that hits the city (before all the skyscrapers were built).  It is still the most eye catching site on any water taxi ride up the river.  Wat Arun is one of over 31,000 Buddhist temples spread across Thailand.  To us, one of the most striking features was the mosaics that cover almost every surface of the temple.  This reminded us strongly of the Watts Towers in Los Angeles and one couldn’t help but wonder if pictures of Wat Arun were somewhere in mind of Simon Rodia as he constructed the Watts Towers in his backyard using his own version of mosaics.  We used 587 individual snapshots to create our 67 second love letter to the temple.
