Thumbs-up In Cemetery

Man thumbing up in cemetery

The man sat in the burial ground

Shot at Mahanak Cemetary in Bangkok, Thailand.

I was in the graveyard which I found during rambling along. I didn't like such place. The reason why entered was that I found two men in the cemetery and they talked to me. It was uncommon to see a graveyard in Bangkok because the majority was Buddhist and Buddhists had no customs to make a grave. This graveyard was for Muslims. According to original Buddhist teaching, human beings make a fresh start in life after death. So any graves are not needed for Buddhists. It is interesting that there were the differences of the opinion on death.

At any rate, two men dug a grave in the cemetery. It might be a tough task to dig a deep hole by humans. They took turns at digging. And it was not his turn of the man in this photo. He watched his colleague digging while sitting among the burial makers. And he thumbed up when I focused on him.
