Pattaya Bay from Wongamat Beach

Pattaya Bay from Wongamat Beach

Took this while I was wandering down in Wongamat Beach. It’s actually a really good view of Pattaya Bay and Pattaya City towards Walking St. You can also see Pratumnak Hill and the ever-present spire I look out to form my own condo which is Dongtan Beach. Oh, if you are wondering you can walk down to the Pattaya City sign. There is a park up there. You can also see Pattaya’s biggest disaster which is the building to the…

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…

Around Jomtien Thailand

Around Jomtien Thailand

These are just some random shots I took while I was out and about on my various travels. Nothing fancy about these, just quick edits and done. It shows the everyday Thailand that goes on when you leave the resorts and tourist destinations. Oh, for the curious, the cats are in my condo complex. They keep the vermin population down but are deathly afraid of the pigeons. While they are owned by no one, they are well taken care of…

A Tuk Tuk In Thailand

A Tuk Tuk In Thailand

Where I live in Thailand a tuk tuk is rare. We use songthaew’s (Baht bus), motorbike taxis, and if you are a masochist a real taxi if you wish to be triple charged for a trip. So seeing a tuk tuk is not a common sight. In fact, it’s illegal in my city to use a tuk tuk as paid transport. Businesses can use them to ferry customers from their location to another but there can be no fee. Not…

Bringing In The Morning Catch

Bringing In The Morning Catch

I didn’t want to do back-to-back fishing photos so I didn’t! This is the same spot from the photo earlier this week but taken earlier in the day while they were bringing their boats in and selling the catch that morning. I happened to go by the location this week and the beach is taped off but the boats are still up to the edge of the walkway to sell their catch to those that are in the know. Enjoy

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…
