I shot pictures at the majestic Griffith Observatory last week, the setting for scenes in Rebel Without a Cause and home of glorious terrestrial as well as celestial views. Seeing an orange-robed monk there made me nostalgic for my recent trip to Chiang Mai, Thailand, where I saw Buddhist monks in orange robes every day.
