Gentle Reflections

Gentle Reflections

This is a pool/pond I really don’t know what to call it in a Chinese Temple. It’s near a tourist trap temple complex of the image I posted yesterday. I really like going to the Chinese temple because its calm and quiet and no one is ever around. I think I am going to take a break for the Thailand photos. I am sitting on a backlog of stuff I have shot and since I have moved and started to…

Buddha and The Sala

Buddha and The Sala

I have no idea what the name of this temple complex is called. Most of us just call it Big Buddha which is located in Pratumnak Hill. This day I took my friend up there as he had never seen it even though he lives in Thailand. It’s just in his normal area and we were but a short bike ride away so it seemed like a pleasant way to pass the time before we parted ways for the day….

Lost In The Moment

Lost In The Moment

These images were shot over the entire duration of the 6 weeks I spent in Thailand. While I enjoy the landscape/travel stuff I still do street style photography when the mood is upon me. For curation purposed I wanted them to have a consistent theme about them where the person was clearly not paying attention and just lost in the moment. This made it difficult for me because I have similar images that will be used for other series as…

Stretch of Beach

Stretch of Beach

I know I promised a series on my triumphant (not really) return but I ran into a problem. I haven’t had to curate anything resembling a series in awhile so I got caught up on what-is-what. I have some very specific ideas on what I want to do with those images that I don’t want to pt something into a series that I feel should not be there. If you have never done image curation it can be nerve shattering…

Hiatus

Hiatus

Due to my moving and having to setup my new apartment I am taking a hiatusĀ until the 28th of December. If I manage to get everything setup and working I may post before. With the holidays mixed inĀ I don’t see a huge demand for images right. On the plus side I can work through some of the non-landscape stuff I shot in Thailand and produce a series or two for next week. Thanks for stopping by.

Just Another Night In Thailand

Just Another Night In Thailand

One of the biggest questions I get about Thailand is what is it like. Behold a normal night in Thailand. The massage shop trying to attract customers. You can see someone getting a neck massage in the background. The various food carts that cater mostly to Thai’s but the brave tourists or expat will eat off them as well. The cart in the middle is som tam or green papaya salad. You can see its a push cart, the one…

Can I Help You?

Can I Help You?

If you go to enough temples in Thailand you realize that the dogs, cats, chickens, roosters, and various other forms of animal life are a common sight. They aren’t pets, they just live there because the monks take care of them by feeding them. I don’t recommend picking one up and scratching them or really engaging with them. There are some unhealthy animals there and vaccinations aren’t high on the monks to do list. Rule of thumb is look but…

Guardians At The Gate

Guardians At The Gate

Why are there two elephants guarding the entrance to this temple complex? Well, my quick search turned up the fact that Buddha’s mother was unable to have a child until she dreamed of a white elephant entering her. So I can see why it’s important to Buddhism. You also need to understand that Buddhism comes from India where the elephant is revered because of Ganesh. Thai Buddhism draws heavily on Hinduism. It’s not uncommon to see lots of Hindu elements…

Selfie At Sunset

Selfie At Sunset

This was shot on the beach obviously. One of the interesting things about the beach is you rarely see a Thai out there in the day unless under the umbrellas. It’s a social thing with dark skin. For an outsider looking in the dark skin issue is a bit weird but when you go shopping you will see nothing but whitening creams even if its everyday lotion that does zero for whitening skin. So when I was shooting at sunset…

Buddha And Monk

Buddha And Monk

I found this little alter in a small temple off the Naval Overlook in Pratumnak. While every tourist was busy with the overlook they ignored this cool little temple complex so I had the place to myself. Well, by to myself I meant those Thais that were hanging around the temple but there were no other tourists around me which was really nice. They missed the coolest attraction. If you ask me who the monk is in this I don’t…
