While these aren’t from today, or yesterday, or even one day in general, I thought it only right to compile photos from my (now outdated, but still awesome) Samsung Galaxy 2 Android that best describe a day in the life of an English teacher in Thailand.

As part of my continued participation in March is Phoneography Month, I’ve organized a collection of my Thailand pets. Seriously. Sometimes I think that people have a camera on their phone for one sole purpose: To show the world their pet.
I’m a victim as well. There are so many photo’s of my dogs Rocky and Buddy that I think my phone should just self-implode.
But since I’ve been in Thailand, I have had a chance to have, or help others have, some other amazing pets. First there was the kitten who was too young to be in a pet shop and whom my boss instantly adopted.
Then there were some seriously adorable puppies who just helped themselves up onto our porch. A photoshoot ensued, obviously.
Then, the best of all, Jing Jai. (Means “real heart” in Thai)
Once again, I have a random addition to my forthcoming series of phone pictures, idea thanks to WordPresses Phoneography Month. These are ones that I’m proud of. That make my little camera seem like a God when it does things that I want it to do without even having to think about it.
Honestly, these are the pictures I’ve taken and gone “awwww yeaaaah” because it captured the moment perfectly and I didn’t have to rustle around in my giant purse to locate my point and shoot camera.
I’d also like to take a moment to announce that I haven’t, and will not, edit a single one of my phoneography pictures in order to more accurately emphasize the awesomeness of both the photographer and the camera. (Does this make me sound like I have a big head? Really, I’m just proud that my purchase of 2 years ago still continues to amaze me.)
So I’ve decided I’m going to participate in WordPresses March is Phoneography Month.
I’ve actually taken an amazing amount of pictures from my phone that I don’t even know where to start. But having this little beast in my pocket at all times always comes in handy, and always allows me to capture the moment spontaneously – if I remember that my phone even has a camera.
Anyone who knows me knows that I have a slight obsession with sunflowers. So much so, that I have taken pictures of them, and have been saving pictures of sunflower tattoo ideas onto my hard drive since at least 2010.
So it seems fitting that I coincidentally moved into a town that is famous around Thailand for their mass amounts of sunflower fields. (Yet another reason to get that tattoo that I’ve been planning for the last three years.)
The sunflower fields are only fully in bloom for approximately three weeks in December. For those three glorious weeks the areas just outside town are so amazingly beautiful that I took to driving with my gaze almost completely on the fields and hardly on the road itself.
Sunflowers are a major source of the economy in Lopburi, aside from it’s main source – the army – and are farmed for the use of sunflower oil, sunflower seeds and sunflower butter, to name a few.
But I can’t properly describe the amazing view of the fields, so I’ll let my pictures do the talking.
