Many birds took wings altogether

I came to Wat Suthat again. The architecture in this photo was towering in the square in front of the temple. It was a Giant Swing called Sao Chingcha. Once, it was used in an old Brahmin ceremony. As the name suggests, bishop rides the swing hung from the architecture during the ceremony. The scene could be spectacular. Yet it was demolished because fatal accidents continued. The Giant Swing was the only remnant of the ceremony.

When I held my camera, the birds took a wing altogether as if they waited for the moment.
