Beach’n

Beach’n

Took a ride out to Jomtien Beach just to sit by the Gulf of Thailand and enjoy a cold beer on a hot day. I’m technically retired so I’m allowed these indulgences. Living in Thailand is a bit surreal at times. I’m in a major tourist area so I don’t get the real, Thai experience as this place caters to tourist. My neighborhood is mostly Thai with a few expat enclaves but for the most part it is Thai oriented….

View From Home

View From Home

This honestly is one of the views I get when I leave my building and ride the half mile or so to Pattaya Beach. I have taken for granted I live in a beach town and fairly close to the Gulf of Thailand. Its just not my normal path on my daily wanderings. Living in a beach town doesn’t mean ¬†you actually go to the beach. You just know its there and if you are inclined then you can go…

Pond Bridge

Pond Bridge

I have likely published a photo of this bridge more than a few times before. When you like a subject you keep shooting it. This is a bridge at Meadowlark Gardens in Fairfax, Virginia. Strangely enough I always went back to Meadowlark Gardens even when I moved to Maryland. Not that it was a far drive, it just happened to be a place I frequented because it was the first real “shoot” I did with a camera. Was my Canon…

Tulips – Part 2

Tulips – Part 2

This is the second set in the series of tulips I shot this spring. When I am pressed for time I love doing flower edits. They are quick and easy and can be knocked out without a lot of effort going into them. When I first started processing photos I would just use Lightroom and now I use Photoshop for the majority of my work. I can quickly just do what I want and dodge and burn as needed and…

Clear Waters

Clear Waters

You would think this image is from Thailand and the beach I live close by but it’s not. Why? It rains constantly or the sky is grey. Instead this is Coronado Bay in San Diego, California. It seems the rainy weather has followed me from Florida to Thailand. It is overcast and raining or drizzling here daily. The new fun of having only a motorbike for transportation is that if I get caught out in the rain I get wet….

Tulips – Part 1

Tulips – Part 1

I shot this series of images when the tulips were in full bloom. The series was shot between Brookside Gardens in Maryland and Meadowlark Gardens in Virginia. When I was taking these image I didn’t have a filter that fit my lens. I would have used a 3 stop neutral density to cut down on some of the light since I shot them just before midday. You can fix some of it in Photoshop but it’s never going to look…

Red Clouds At Dusk

Red Clouds At Dusk

Shot this in Fort Myers. One side of where I was standing was a massive rain storm. The other side was this view. Power is happily restored at my building in Thailand. I went out and did what I needed to do and by the time I came back power was back up. Bit of a relief being in your own room again. Even though I have lived here a little over a week all my stuff is in this…

No Photo Today

No Photo Today

Apologies for no image today. I have no power where I live in Thailand. The entire floor is without it. One of the joys of Thailand is that things happen when they happen. Trying to fight it is like trying to stop a raging river. In this instance I was told power man was coming at 11 in the morning. Which would be great but it was 11:30 at this point. It became Noon. I write this on my phone…

Dawn Over Somewhere

Dawn Over Somewhere

I shot this when I went to Fort Myers last December. Just getting around to processing it. Aerial photography is cool but you end up taking a lot of shots because the plane is moving at speed and you are generally behind. So you need a high shutter speed and a decent ISO to keep up with the motion. It also helps to have a window seat so you don’t annoy the person next to you. This flight I was…

Splash Of White

Splash Of White

This was shot while on a boat in Estero Bay in Florida. It’s part of the Gulf of Mexico. I just like this photo. The way the white buildings just dominate a mostly blue image is kinda cool. Visually it isn’t that most stealler thing but the way the colors work make it interesting to me. One of the things I have learned while while living in Florida and I new it would apply to Thailand is that the tropical…
