Chinese Alter

Chinese Alter

Since there are exactly zero tourists here in Pattaya I had the pleasure of wandering “Chinatown” which is a joke but still, I had the place to myself. Well, maybe not myself, there was a lady at the temple for about a minute and a security guard sitting there bored. In all, it was a pleasant day out since I was up in the area picking up some stuff from a store so I figured I swing by and take…

The San Fernando Cathedral

The San Fernando Cathedral

This is another old one from the archives I never edited. This is obviously the San Fernando Cathedral in San Antonio, Texas. I never really liked the image and at the time my edited skills didn’t allow me to edit it the way I wanted to. Plus the software at the time was crap. I shot it for HDR so I had bracketed the photo and I used to do 5 at a time using an Olympus EM-1. Forget the…

Little Restaurant On A Back Soi

Little Restaurant On A Back Soi

If you haven’t figured out I live in Thailand; surprise! I live in Thailand. With most crap shut down due to some virus that’s going around like cooties leaves me nothing but time. Not that I did a lot before. However, napping, watching TV and reading is hard work along with socializing with friends and keeping the San Miguel Brewery in the black financially. I still do the napping, TV watching and reading but the socializing seems to have diminished…

Spiritual Tree

Spiritual Tree

This is a spirit tree a very common sight around South East Asia. If you look you will see them constantly if you are paying attention. This one was in a Chinese temple. I could not begin to figure out why there is a motorcycle helmet on the tree except there were motorbikes parked behind me. I’ll just leap to a logical conclusion on that. Enjoy.

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…

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
