This one isn’t going to win any awards but I just like the funky way this shop looked when I went past it on my bike. I stopped and snapped a picture. There aren’t a lot of antique shops here in Thailand. Most stuff like that is sold in small stalls in markets around the country or through private connections. I didn’t go in as I’m not really interested in antiques but it did look cool. Enjoy.
An old one from when I was last in America. Not sure how busy Fort Myers Beach is these days but it was busy then. This was taken obviously at sunset. The sailboat in the distance just happened to be there so it worked out. Enjoy.
With borders still closed it’s doubtful I’ll get to visit Cambodia this year. Good thing there is lots to explore in Thailand. Still, always had a good time in Cambo as we call it here. I shot this at a little temple off the River Walk, same the doorway from last week. Enjoy.
Honestly, I don’t remember which temple this was. It was right off the River Walk and just before 172 St. walking towards that street in Phnom Penh is about all I can tell you. I just liked the door. Looks cool. You think you are going to get some enlightenment dropped on you instead of a bunch of monks reciting the Dharma. Sadly, it was closed on the day I visited. Enjoy.
Just some of the more unusual sights I have seen while wandering around Jomtien where I live here in Thailand. I went with a large post today to make up for missing yesterday due to a bad back. Enjoy.
This is a small canal running through a fishing village in Naklua, Thailand. This is the real Thailand off the tourist trail that most never see. There is nothing wrong with this area, in fact, it’s pretty standard for a middle-class Thai community. Just, that there isn’t a lot of infrastructure investments in these areas because it doesn’t bring in tourist revenue. Enjoy.
I am clearly into small fishing boats based on all the photos I have taken recently. These boats were part of the fleet at Wongamat Beach. There were a ton onshore and I guess these came in late and needed to be moored offshore or the owners like a good swim in the morning. It’s a mystery that I have no interest in solving. I clearly just subconsciously love boats only, not the fishing. Enjoy.
I have come to the determination I’m fascinated by boats because I have a crapload of photos of them. This is a small crab or shrimping boat I am guessing by the traps near it that was sitting in the muck at low tide in Naklua, Thailand. There is a small fishing village that was behind me that I would have loved to wander through but it’s people’s private lives and the last thing they want is some guy wandering…
Took this while I was wandering down in Wongamat Beach. It’s actually a really good view of Pattaya Bay and Pattaya City towards Walking St. You can also see Pratumnak Hill and the ever-present spire I look out to form my own condo which is Dongtan Beach. Oh, if you are wondering you can walk down to the Pattaya City sign. There is a park up there. You can also see Pattaya’s biggest disaster which is the building to the…
I was tempted to call this one who guards who but I get better traction on posts when I use a Thailand title. While not the biggest fan of SEO I do know how to use and abuse it when it suits the purpose. I swore off doing photos of Wat Pho because they are not letting foreign residents of the Kingdom in. It makes me a wee bit angry as a foreign resident of Thailand. Still, it’s a good…
