Travel Photography – Tip Eight : Be open to serendipity

Serendipity (noun) : Luck that takes the form of finding valuable or pleasant things that are not looked for.

– Quote The Daily Post – Photographing our travel : Tips by Infinite Satori –

Just outside Tay Nihn and 60 miles northwest of Ho Chi Minh City is the Great Temple or Holy See, the center of the intriguing Cao Dai sect. Cao Dai is a syncretist Vietnamese religious movement that incorporates aspect of Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism and even Catholicism.

Looking at the close up shots through the windows (see below photos), you could see the monks all dressed in white.  No shoes, caps or hats are allowed to be worn inside the temple.  Interesting enough while photographing this interesting temple, I thought it would make cool shot to take a photo of all the shoes that patiently waited while the owners went inside the temple.
