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…

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

Construction Skies

Construction Skies

This is the view from the other side of my balcony away from the beach. The building is typical Thai construction type stuff and who the hell knows when it will be done. This is another one of the sky shots I take as normal. When your shooting time is limited you take what you can get. Again, I used my Nikon D5500 and just walked out and took the shoot. I think the building just adds some visual details…

Cambodian Royal Palace

Cambodian Royal Palace

Behold! I took pictures while in Cambodia! I will admit the .65 cents (US) beer was also very tempting. There may be less photos and more been consumption than normal but at .65 who can complain? That’s cheap even compared to Thailand. This is the entrance to the Royal Palace; well in theory. Real entrance is about 300 meters to the right but the nice guards pointed me to it. Then I got charged $10 to enter the place. I…

Stairs In The Jungle

Stairs In The Jungle

First off this isn’t the jungles of Thailand. In fact, it’s just normal bushes and the stairs lead to a helicopter landing pad that I have never seen a helicopter on. It just sounds more dramatic to say jungle stairs. Where I live is actually a beach town. When you get outside it, there are small hills but mostly flat, farming land. There isn’t really a jungle here without going further up North and then its all protected national forest….

The Door

The Door

Took this while on a ramble around town. I just found it funny that this was a door painted like that. It makes it seem so inviting and friendly. I have no real idea if the door even works. Thai health and safety standards aren’t what you call the best in the world. I’d write more but enjoy the photo for what it is. I do give the artist credit for making it an interesting door. Enjoy.
