While walking around in Bangkok's Phra Nakhon district and came to the front of a Buddhist temple. It did not seem to be a famous temple, not mentioned in the guidebook I had. But a lot of visitors were being sucked into the temple grounds one after another. It looked like some kind of ceremony was being held. Maybe it was the memorial ceremony for the former king.

The man in this photo was doing business in front of such a temple. He was selling yellow flowers, sitting on a sheet on the pavement. What he sold were offerings. An assortment of yellow flowers were selling like crazy from the side where I was watching. He might be a pretty shrewd guy to open an impromptu stall and sell flowers for an offering.
