Walking Along The Beach

Walking Along The Beach

I haven’t seen the Sun in a few days and I think I may have mentioned I miss Thailand or implied I miss Thailand. While they are going through a “cold snap” at the moment I’ll gladly switch even with the mild weather we are having here now. So when I saw this image it reminded me of the good times and weather that I had in Thailand. This was shot along Beach Road in Jomtein, Thailand and I as…

Point On The Beach

Point On The Beach

The snow has stopped but it will be around for some time. The area I am in got hit with 2 feet or around .6 meters. For inquiring minds, hell no I haven’t been out. It’s cold and I’m delicate. Since its still cold I went ahead and did another beach picture from Thailand. This was shot on Pattaya Beach just down from the Dolphin roundabout where Beach Road begins.   This was shot on my Ricoh GR which I…

Stretch of Beach

Stretch of Beach

I know I promised a series on my triumphant (not really) return but I ran into a problem. I haven’t had to curate anything resembling a series in awhile so I got caught up on what-is-what. I have some very specific ideas on what I want to do with those images that I don’t want to pt something into a series that I feel should not be there. If you have never done image curation it can be nerve shattering…

Selfie At Sunset

Selfie At Sunset

This was shot on the beach obviously. One of the interesting things about the beach is you rarely see a Thai out there in the day unless under the umbrellas. It’s a social thing with dark skin. For an outsider looking in the dark skin issue is a bit weird but when you go shopping you will see nothing but whitening creams even if its everyday lotion that does zero for whitening skin. So when I was shooting at sunset…

Crescent Bay

Crescent Bay

This is Pattaya Bay shot from the Naval Overlook up in Pratamnak. This Naval Overlook is a major tourist attraction with tour buses vomiting out tourists in hordes. These same tourists then sit there like dogs pissing on their favorite spot to mark their territory by setting up their tripods preventing anyone else to get a shot without a lot weird angles. Not 100% happy with this image but I seldom am. It has to do with noise in the…

The Low Tide Smooths

The Low Tide Smooths

I was getting creative by the time I took this one off the beach. I had experimented before with dropping my tripod almost to ground level and firing off some shots just to change the perspective. I think with this image it really works. I really wanted the rocks to be dominate in the foreground while making the sky and water look smoother. While I’m not 100% happy with how I smoothed out the sky its vastly improved over the…

Just Lounging

Just Lounging

This was shot off of Jomtein Beach in Thailand. The sun was starting to set on the Gulf of Thailand and people were mostly gone for the day preparing for the evening ahead. It was mainly me and the people who rent out these chairs breaking them down for the evening. I got a few curious looks from vendors wondering why I was shooting their beach chairs but for the most part they ignored me and went about their business…

From Shore to Sky

From Shore to Sky

This is one from Wognamat Beach in Naklua, Thailand. The skies were threatening and I just liked how it works with the water and buildings. One of the interesting things I have discovered while shooting here in Thailand is that sand and tripods aren’t the best of friends. Tripods tend to sink it the sand which can cause the image to shift from frame to frame. Wognamat’s beach was better than Jomtien’s because it was course sand versus the finder…

Through, Under, On

Through, Under, On

These three shots all involve the same pier. The first is me heading through it. The second is me under the pier. The third is me on top it shooting out. The image with me shooting under it came out much better than expected. I shot about 20 images to make sure I got it. The one me heading to go through the pier is just funny how the seagull wasn’t going to move. It stood its ground and just…
