I have been creating these short video clips of my Thailand Photos to share on YouTube and Instagram using the android app - Photo Grid. I am posting all these videos in this Photo Flip YouTube Playlist so you can easily view my Photo Flips!
I am really enjoying the photo editing software provided in Google+ and I thought I would share it here.
The photos below shows before and after editing and it shows an amazing transformation of a dull city photo into something very interesting. I used the HDR filter which allows a lot of flexibility in the various aspects of the filter and it only took at few seconds... .

Last evening I was celebrating Chinese New Year in Bangkok's Chinatown and I wasn't disappointed. The year of the Horse rang in with a bang with all sorts of activity to enjoy including Chinese traditional music and dancing. I was lucky enough to have a Chinese Tiger Dance spring to life around me while I was videoing, very cool. So enjoy the photos and video!

The White Temple or Wat Rong Khun arose from the imagination of Artist Chalermchai Kositpipat which began construction in 1997. Wat Rong Khun is truly a place to put on your “must see” list if you are planning to be in Chang Rai for any length of time. The temple is pure white on the outside with imaginative sculptures and architecture covering the landscape. Departing from the traditional use of gold in temple art, Chalermchai uses pure white with mirrors to symbolize the Lord Buddha's purity and shinning wisdom. The inside temple walls are decorated with superheroes, movie stars and cartoons juxtaposed with traditional Buddhist motifs to symbolize escaping desire, greed and passion and moving along the "right" path through Buddhist teachings.
