When I was in Thailand I did a tour of a few of the Buddhist temples in Bangkok. They were amazing to see, gorgeous architecture and artistry. Yet despite the prosperity contained within, outside was a reminder of the poverty many experience. Beggars and street merchants desperate for spare change while a glorious building with a 50ft golden Buddha lay inside. Meanwhile I just wanted to take photos because it's not every day you get to see a 50ft golden Buddha.
