Temple Door In Phnom Penh Cambodia

Temple Door In Phnom Penh Cambodia

Honestly, I don’t remember which temple this was. It was right off the River Walk and just before 172 St. walking towards that street in Phnom Penh is about all I can tell you. I just liked the door. Looks cool. You think you are going to get some enlightenment dropped on you instead of a bunch of monks reciting the Dharma. Sadly, it was closed on the day I visited. Enjoy. Advertisements

Bridge Over Canal In Naklua

Bridge Over Canal In Naklua

This is a small canal running through a fishing village in Naklua, Thailand. This is the real Thailand off the tourist trail that most never see. There is nothing wrong with this area, in fact, it’s pretty standard for a middle-class Thai community. Just, that there isn’t a lot of infrastructure investments in these areas because it doesn’t bring in tourist revenue. Enjoy.

Fishing Boats At Wongamat Beach

Fishing Boats At Wongamat Beach

I am clearly into small fishing boats based on all the photos I have taken recently. These boats were part of the fleet at Wongamat Beach. There were a ton onshore and I guess these came in late and needed to be moored offshore or the owners like a good swim in the morning. It’s a mystery that I have no interest in solving. I clearly just subconsciously love boats only, not the fishing. Enjoy.

Boat In The Muck

Boat In The Muck

I have come to the determination I’m fascinated by boats because I have a crapload of photos of them. This is a small crab or shrimping boat I am guessing by the traps near it that was sitting in the muck at low tide in Naklua, Thailand. There is a small fishing village that was behind me that I would have loved to wander through but it’s people’s private lives and the last thing they want is some guy wandering…

Entrance Gate At Wat Pho

Entrance Gate At Wat Pho

I was tempted to call this one who guards who but I get better traction on posts when I use a Thailand title. While not the biggest fan of SEO I do know how to use and abuse it when it suits the purpose. I swore off doing photos of Wat Pho because they are not letting foreign residents of the Kingdom in. It makes me a wee bit angry as a foreign resident of Thailand. Still, it’s a good…

Outside Terminal 21 In Pattaya

Outside Terminal 21 In Pattaya

There are planes like this outside of Terminal 21 which is a giant ass mall chain here in Thailand. I have never been in as I break out in hives when I enter a mall. Least that’s the story I am sticking with. If you are wondering what airline SCB is well I got bad news, it isn’t. SCB stands for Siam Commercial Bank which was founded by the monarchy in 1907 and still remains it’s biggest shareholder. Oh, if…

Lighthouse At Bali Hai

Lighthouse At Bali Hai

The famous or neglected lighthouse at Bali Hai in Pattaya, Thailand. Bali Hai is just the area along the shore that boats dock and there is a large pier that runs out into the Gulf of Thailand that larger ferry’s and other boats dock. It’s a tourist attraction on its own. I just haven’t gone to it because it was closed until recently. The lighthouse isn’t accessible unless you really feel like walking way too far or have a motorbike…

Modernity And Traditional In Thailand

Modernity And Traditional In Thailand

This was taken off Wongamat Beach in Thailand. It’s interesting to see a full-blown local fishing area next to these very expensive tourist and ex-pat condos. The condos are all private beaches that are maintained and Wongamat is a rocky little beach used mostly by locals because parking and public access is so limited. It’s a bit of a contrast that lends it’s self to the real Thailand and not the postcard images the tourist industry wants you to see….
