I shot this while down in Naklua. I haven’t done a lot of black and white work lately and this one felt right that way. The title about being on rocky ground speaks for itself. Enjoy.
This one isn’t going to win any awards but I just like the funky way this shop looked when I went past it on my bike. I stopped and snapped a picture. There aren’t a lot of antique shops here in Thailand. Most stuff like that is sold in small stalls in markets around the country or through private connections. I didn’t go in as I’m not really interested in antiques but it did look cool. Enjoy.
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.
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.
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…
I took this when I was roaming around Naklua a few weeks back. It’s not an area I know very well. This particular area is all local fishing people. This isn’t a tourist destination. Enjoy.
I was down in Naklua just goofing off and taking photos. Naklua is very much a Thai fishing area more than a tourist area. So there is a lot more fishing stuff down that way than there is in Jomtien where I live. However, you can see the condos and hotels and that rising spire behind them is the Sanctuary Of Truth.
These are just shots I have taken while riding around Pattaya. Sure some are from the same area but they fit together. Some are not. I have a ton of these and I didn’t feel like working on anything else as I have been ass-deep in Photoshop the last few days working on logos and menus for a friend. Enjoy.
This was the last photo I shot on an outing to Naklua for the day. I was actually across Pattaya Bay at Bali Hai and I saw this and stopped and took the photo. It never rained over on my side but if I had to guess Naklua got hit. It’s not unusual to drive a few kilometers and see the ground wet from rain that I never got at my own place. Enjoy.
Wongamat Beach is in the Naklua area of Pattaya. It’s not one of those pristine white sand beaches you see in Thailand. It’s more small rocks. It’s also not as open to the public as the other beaches in the area. There are only a few access points that aren’t private and controlled by resorts or condos. Those beaches are the white sand because it’s been trucked in and maintained. Which is neither here nor there. The point is the…
