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.

When I wasn’t out working off a tripod and the big Sony A7R I always had my Sony RX100M3 with me (even when I was still had it with me). This allowed me to…

Gods From The Heavens

Gods From The Heavens

Today’s image was shot at the Sanctuary of Truth which is located in Naklua. I have fond memories of this place as it was the first ever location I shot RAW in many years ago. Up until that point I had been shooting jpeg and more or less in P Mode or Auto. Little did I know it was a sign of things to come. The building is all wood and all hand carved. There are no nails or glue used…
