Of Palms And Boats

Of Palms And Boats

Sticking with my boat fetish. This was taken further along on Jomtien Beach where other fishing boats pull their boats in. I just thought this one looked better in black and white since it brings out more of the hidden features of the boat and to be honest, there wasn’t much colour in the photo anyways. I will give double extra bonus points if anyone can find where I removed a pigeon from the photo with extreme prejudice. As I…

Colorful Fishing Boat

Colorful Fishing Boat

I’m back with my boat fetish I clearly have. This is one of the regular fishing boats the come in during the morning to sell their catch along Jomtien Beach. They sell both at the market and direct if you are up at that unholy hour of the morning. Considering I am not an early riser on a good day I can say I have never bought directly from them and, to be honest, I can always just go down…

Calm Day On Jomtien Beach

Calm Day On Jomtien Beach

I guess you would call it my home beach since I live in Jomtien. It’s calmer and cleaner than it’s sister beach known as Pattaya Beach which you could not pay me enough to swim in. Not that I swim in the water anyways. Lot’s do and Jomtien Beach is the popular local beach for local Thais that flock to it on the weekend. By local, I also mean those from Bangkok. I should point out I took this photo…

The Lonely Tree

The Lonely Tree

I saw this riding past on my motorbike and I knew I had to get this shot. It’s just a weird dead tree on the beach. The final piece is the soi dog laying down in front of it. I used my Olympus TG-4 to take the image as it was raining out. What I didn’t realize is that I didn’t have it set to RAW. It’s the most intuitive camera for changing the setting for RAW. I was able…

Signs In Jomtien Thailand

Signs In Jomtien Thailand

I do love a good sign here. I have missed taking a photo of But Stop when bus was misspelled but you can’t have everything in life. All of these except the police box was taken here in Jomtien where I live. The police box was taken in Pattaya when I was up there on an excursion. The best thing about these types of shots is that they are easy and just fun to take. Nothing serious about them. Also,…

The Burning Sunset Over The Gulf Of Thailand

The Burning Sunset Over The Gulf Of Thailand

My usual view when the skies aren’t grey and threatening rain from my condo. I was looking out my balcony and saw this, grabbed my Nikon D810. I have my Tamron 28-300 which is not the sharpest lens in the world and took the photo. When it came time to edit I was going to remove all details from the building but I put it into Aurora HDR it popped some features so I left it. In the end I…

Long Tail Fishing Boats On The Shore

Long Tail Fishing Boats On The Shore

There is a small fishing fleet up the road from me. They bring their boats on sure and there is a spontaneous seafood market on the beach. Whatever gets caught gets sold to the local residents, and whatever doesn’t get sent to a seafood market. They have saltwater fish like seabass, there are tons of squid, and you will see loads of prawns too. Since I’m allergic to cleaning seafood I take a pass and get it at a store…

Entrance Gateway To Jomtien Beach

Entrance Gateway To Jomtien Beach

This is the gateway to Beach Rd and Jomtien Beach here in Thailand. The guy at the top is the king of Thailand. If you are curious his name is Maha Vajiralongkorn and you can read all about him here. I got lucky to get this image because normally Beach Rd. is normally busy with traffic. Since we aren’t allowing any tourists into the country I managed to stand as near to the middle as I dared and took a…

Pattaya In Black And White

Pattaya In Black And White

I decided to do all these images of Pattaya in black and white. They just seemed to fit better this way. Some are in HDR, some aren’t, some have been played with extensively some haven’t. I just had some fun shooting them and editing them. I took my Sony RX100 out with me so I could get a bit more reach and still have a light camera without changing lenses so it worked well. Enjoy.

The Path To Enlightenment Is Fraught With Perils

The Path To Enlightenment Is Fraught With Perils

Well not really unless you are worried about a hedge poking out on the path or low hanging wires which are so common in South East Asia you don’t even register them anymore unless they are near your foot or head and could potentially be carrying voltage. The secret is most are telecom lines and not power. They just look like a jumbled, dangerous mess but in reality they are harmless. You see techs out there on bamboo ladders leaning…
