Jacob’s Ladder

Jacob’s Ladder

I haven’t done any black and white in awhile and when I took this picture I knew it was going to be in black and white.  I love fire escapes because where I live we don’t have them.  This one reminded me of a ladder so why not call it Jacob’s Ladder since it was heading into the sky.  Not to everyone’s taste I’m sure but I like it.  The best part about all this is when I took the…

Sunset in the city

Sunset in the city

Having a view from the 23rd floor of a building makes shots like this possible.  While I would have preferred not to have the taller building in the shot, this is all about the sky and the colors that got produced.  Using the Fuji X100S and pushing it against the window to hold it steady fired off this shot.  Some minor tweaking using Nik Color Efex 4 and very pleased with how the orange in the sky came out.

Stuck On

Stuck On

I have lots of images that I never processed before I left for Thailand and not overwhelm everyone with Thailand pictures I’ll change it up a bit.  I would have used some in Thailand but sadly my library was at home and pulling down the backups would have been a nightmare as they were shot in RAW and internet speeds in Thailand aren’t what you called blazing fast.  This picture was taken with the mighty Canon 330 of the leaf…

Crap Santa

Crap Santa

I won’t pretend there is a modicum of art in this photo.  It’s just a bad picture of what I view as a crap Santa I saw while going to get my bike from parking.  I had to stop and take a picture.  Since Christmas isn’t traditionally celebrated in Thailand they wing it from what they pickup from Westerners and media.  This was such a crap Santa that I had to document it.  Seemed appropriate for Christmas day.

Offerings to Buddha

Offerings to Buddha

This is a typical offering area in a temple where the monk on duty (I’m guessing) sits and chants and people can give donations to the monks.  This is a typical money tree is what I call it but I’m sure its called something else. You put the donation in a little slot on the stick.  Thais not being overly wealthy usually give small offerings like the 20 Baht bills you see predominately in the image.  I really like how…

City Hall

City Hall

I like one of these a lot and one not so much.  One of the issues with this building is that they light the dome at night but the rest of the building is relatively dark in comparison.  When shooting with the Canon 330 it makes it difficult at times depending on your metering option.  To get the most out of the camera you have to use spot meter.  Well on the landscape shot of the entire building and the…
