Royal Pagoda At Nongnooch Gardens

Royal Pagoda At Nongnooch Gardens

I recently went to Nongnooch Gardens expecting something like a botanical garden. Instead, I found a giant tourist trap that just was horrible. After 2 hours I finally gave up and left. First off, the place is full of plastic animals be it dinosaurs or other animals. Everything is designed to maximize profit and keep you spending. Want to do this it costs more. Want to do that, additional charge. Plus the layout of the park is a nightmare to…

Wat Phra Yai Pagoda

Wat Phra Yai Pagoda

Wat Phra Yai is the real name for what everyone else in Pattaya calls Big Buddha. Having seen Big Buddha more times than I care to admit I skip it now and head towards the Chinese Temple that most ignore. Meaning, it’s not jammed by a bunch of tourists being dropped off by the busloads. If you are ever in Pattaya and are like I rather see the Chinese Temple, just pull in at the top of the parking area…

Just A Bit Of Sun

Just A Bit Of Sun

I was down near the beach enjoying a beer at my local watering hole and wanted to grab some sunset photos. Sadly, where the bar is located versus where I live I missed the sunset for the most part. Hence the title, just a bit of sun. This was taken off Jomtien Beach with my Sony RX100iii which I am now just chucking in one of my pockets in a case and carrying around with me. This way I can…

Buddha Mountain

Buddha Mountain

I shot this last year when my Mom was visiting me here in Thailand. There is a real name for the place but the Thai name is brutal so we just call it Buddha Mountain. I shot this on my Nikon D5500 with my Sigma 17-70 Lens. Honestly, if I want a travel camera and don’t want to hump one of my Sony’s around the D5500 with the 17-50 and the 55-200 is perfect. Lightweight, great battery life, and outstanding…

Under The Pier And Dreaming

Under The Pier And Dreaming

This is underneath the pier at Fort Myers Beach in Florida. Guess that’s why I called it Under The Pier And Dreaming. I’m original like that. This was done in HDR using Aurora 2019. One image and done. I haven’t shot bracketed images in about forever when you can do HDR with one anymore. The program does a good job with just one image so why bother. Enjoy

Sunset Over The Pier

Sunset Over The Pier

This is the fishing pier at Fort Myer’s beach. Shockingly enough this was my first trip ever to Fort Myer’s beach so I really had no idea that the pier even existed. I set up my trip in the water as I took this photo. Some guy was behind me going what you shoot? I was like the sunset over the pier. He goes brilliant and busts out his cell phone for the same shot. He ended up following me…
