Under Construction

Under Construction

I haven’t done a monochrome image in a while and when I took this one I knew it was going to be monochrome. It just felt right. I was shooting some place else when I saw this Buddha. Not really knowing where it was led to an adventure of getting attacked by dogs and crashing a motorbike but happy to report other than some scrapes on the bike and me it ended happily as I found the temple complex. I…

Lighthouse At Sunset

Lighthouse At Sunset

This is one of the reasons I went to Bali Hai, the lighthouse at the end of the road. Well, not really end, more like before you take a sharp left hand turn and end up in Pratumnak but most people never make it that far down. You gotta weave through the docks with boats being moved about and roving packs of soi dogs. Rather intimidating unless you been down that way before. There are double bonus points if you…

Waves Crashing

Waves Crashing

This was shot off Bali Hai. I have no idea what the structure is. In Thailand there are lots of incomplete public works that just sit there as monoliths to the unfinished. With this one, with the sun setting and Gulf of Thailand waters looking blue it seemed like a good time to take the picture. The interesting thing about this one was I had a whole CCTV crew installing a new camera in the area I was shooting. I…

Loy Krathong

Loy Krathong

November 25th of Loy Krathong Day here in Thailand. It’s always a major festival with people releasing lanterns into the air and krathong’s out into the water. Click the link if you want to learn more. It’s spelled Loi on Wikipedia but in Thailand its spelled Loy. Considering there is no standard of translation of Thai words into English and like most things over here, just go with it. So with that out of the way I figured I get…

Ride On The Beach

Ride On The Beach

Suffering a bit of editors block as I went through about 4 different images and just wasn’t happy with them. I finally settled on this. It’s a simple photo of a couple riding along the beach in Jomteim. I have been processing so much HDR stuff and trying to make everything better that I just went back to something simple with the hope that I get my mojo back. Enjoy.

After The Rain

After The Rain

This is the side soi (street) that gets you Wongamat Beach since most of the access is blocked by large condo buildings and hotels. I guess to keep the riffraff like me out who aren’t interested in spending a lot of money for an oceanside view. I’ll take the workman like soi I am staying on any day of the week. I like nodding to the fried rice vendor or the pad thai guy or the small little restaurant setup…

Gods From The Heavens

Gods From The Heavens

Today’s image was shot at the Sanctuary of Truth¬†which is located in Naklua. I have fond memories of this place as it was the first ever location I shot RAW in many years ago. Up until that point I had been shooting jpeg and more or less in P Mode or Auto. Little did I know it was a sign of things to come. The building is all wood and all hand carved. There are no nails or glue used…

Sunset Over The Gulf

Sunset Over The Gulf

Not sure how I feel about one. The colors are nice but I think I lost some detail when I did the conversion into HDR. I am still playing with Aura HDR, the new tool from Macphun so learning how to use it at the same time I am creating images. It’s more powerful than Photomatix but there is always a learning curve when you switch software. This was shot off of Wongamat Beach here in Thailand. The storms had…

Storming The Beach

Storming The Beach

I shot this from the back of my bike while I was riding through. It total its 6 images blended together. I really didn’t want to go too deep into the editing today but I have Aura HDR which is new HDR software I purchased while here in Thailand. This wasn’t exactly a HDR shot, since I was handheld I just fired off 6 shots and said have at it. Seemed a fair test of the software. One of the…

Lost

Lost

If you don’t pay close attention it looks like she is meditating over the Gulf of Thailand. Reality is she was playing on her phone and oblivious to what was going on around her. She was with 2 other guys who were fishing. Not sure if she was a sister or girlfriend of one of the guys but she was in her own world with the phone. She had no idea I was clearly taking photographs of her. It was…
