It’s All About The Face

It’s All About The Face

I think the title is obvious if you know the song and with the giant face in the photo, it helps make the point. This was taken at the Sanctuary Of Truth here in Thailand. Always worth a visit when you can actually leave your home country again or something. I did make it black and white because I blew the image out because my ISO was set to 1600 from shooting inside the building and forgetting to change it…

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…

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

Bangkok Buildings

Bangkok Buildings

It seems appropriate to publish this set of images today because I will be on the final leg of my flight back to Thailand when these go live. I don’t live in Bangkok and it’s not my favorite place due to the traffic and congestion. Still, it represents the final portion of my sojourn to get home. From Suwannaphum Airport or BKK back to Jomtien where I happily live. Shot on a Nikon D5500 and using the Sigma 17-50mm 2.0…

Royal Tomb Stairs

Royal Tomb Stairs

This is from the Silver Pagoda which is attached to the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh Cambodia. No idea whose tomb it is since I didn’t take the offer of the tour and just did my own thing. This image is almost purely out of the camera. Beyond using a profile setting and doing some slider adjustments I was happy with it. I did use a gradient for the sky and dodging and burning but that was all. Sounds like…

Palace Temple

Palace Temple

This is the actual temple for the Royal Palace in Cambodia. The thing is you can’t take any photos inside. I once got yelled at in the Bangkok Royal Palace because my tried to take one quietly, they know what shutter noise sounds like. With a mirrorless I could have done it but living over in South East Asia now I understand some things aren’t done so don’t push it. I just like the roof of these temples, they are…

The Grand Entrance

The Grand Entrance

I have no real idea if this is the grand entrance to the Royal Palace in Cambodia or not but it is in my world. I have tried to edit this photo countless times. First time Photoshop kept crashing from one of my plug-ins. I gave up and walked away. Then I got got so sick I could barely get out of bed. I’m going to call it malaria or something exotic instead of the flu. Today I finally got…

The Gate

The Gate

One of the gates at the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. What is funny about these is that they are all along the palace walls but you can only get in at one place. You can also make out some of the mural along the wall on the inside. This is standard I guess because the Royal Palace in Bangkok had the same thing when I visited there. I did make this HDR out of a single image. For…

Neon Knights

Neon Knights

Super double extra bonus points if you figure out where I got the title from. I’ll give a hint, RIP Ronnie James Dio. You magnificent bastard. I had to shoot a birthday party up near Walking St in Pattaya and I arrived early to get my gear set and then just locked it up and took a walk for a bite to eat. For whatever reason it gets darker here in Thailand earlier than it did back in the United…
