A million shades of green

12 Oct

In the sea of gray and drab concrete I live in, I sometimes forget just how bright and vivid colors can be, especially the color green.  In Asia, the color green takes on a whole new meaning, and rice paddies glisten like jewels laid out across the plains.

I took this picture while I was biking across Laos with two of my girlfriends, but the rice paddies were just as beautiful everywhere I went in Asia- Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Burma.  I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my travels in South East Asia.  It was such a magical time in my life, where all the possibilities in the world loomed on the horizon and I was drunk on my youth and zeal for life.  I hope I can rediscover that feeling.
