Court Life

Court Life

These I believe are water color paintings from Japan.  I admittedly didn’t read the little sign stuff next to the displays.  These were shot on a Kern Paillard 12mm 1.8 lens which is a C mount which means you have a heavy circle of black around your images.  With the crop tool I could remove a lot of it and still keep the details.  So enjoy this little bit of Japanese court life (I think).

Face of a Bodhisattva

Face of a Bodhisattva

Went to the Freer and Sackler Galleries which are apart of the Smithsonian Institute to shoot their Asian collection.  The lighting was challenging to say the least and I added an additional challenge, all manual focus adapted lenses.  So the newest lens used was like 25 years old with some images being shot on 50+ year old lenses.  So it was a real adventure.  I just did this one first because it jumped out at me.  While not perfect its…

Buddha and the Spirit Tree

I am feeling better from my Avian-Swine Flu Hybrid (still self diagnosed) so I figured I owed it to Buddha to process some more images.  Two different cameras, one the Olympus OMD-EM5 and the other the Canon 330HS.  I leave it up others to figure out which is which but without looking at the file names.    

Temple Reflections

I know I threatened more rural scenes but they are on my main editing computer and I’m still sick. Considering I have my laptop right in front of me which has all my travel photos that I haven’t moved to the main machine I just did the editing on it.  As Freddie Mercury said, “the show must go on” and so it did.  I went from depressing black an white to the rich vibrant colors of a temple (really a…

Among the Flowers

Among the Flowers

To be perfectly honest this wasn’t the image for the day.  I have been working on another image for the past 3 days and I can’t get it to where I like it and I finally walked away and went through the Thailand pictures.  I like the color and how the Chinese goddess is just peeking through the flowers which are fake as I really looked at the image.  Tweaked it a bit and happy enough to share.  I figure…

Crap Santa

Crap Santa

I won’t pretend there is a modicum of art in this photo.  It’s just a bad picture of what I view as a crap Santa I saw while going to get my bike from parking.  I had to stop and take a picture.  Since Christmas isn’t traditionally celebrated in Thailand they wing it from what they pickup from Westerners and media.  This was such a crap Santa that I had to document it.  Seemed appropriate for Christmas day.
