When you go fishing through your archives

Copyright Monica L. Shulman

You never know what you'll find when you start digging through old boxes, or in my case, old external hard drives. I've been completely re-hauling my system so there's been a lot of extra backing up going on and I came across these photos from our trip to Thailand in January 2008.  For one reason or another these photos never made it to the editing phase but I like them so much.  We visited an elephant preservation center while we were in Chiang Mai and fell in love with these majestic, noble animals.  Their eyes were so warm and they seemed so content at home at the camp.  Spending time there was such an amazing experience.

And, ps, have you signed up for this giveaway yet?  It's a free camera, folks!

Krystal, you should absolutely plan a visit there one day. The people are lovely and so kind and the country itself is so rich in history and culture. There is something for everyone. The beaches were gorgeous, the food was beyond delicious, the temples and architecture were just mindblowingly beautiful...one of the most amazing places I've ever visited.
