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…

Storm Over Naklua Thailand

Storm Over Naklua Thailand

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.

Around Pattaya Part 2

Around Pattaya Part 2

It seems everyone liked these shots so I figured I post more. I have a ton of them. Just random snaps I take when I’m out and about. I rarely use my phone as a camera. Instead, I carry my Sony RX100iii or sometimes a bigger camera. Some of these were shot with manual focus adapted lenses on a Sony A7R or Sony A7ii. Enjoy!

Pattaya Bay

Pattaya Bay

The lovely Pattaya Bay. I took this one day when I was out for a ride on my mighty Honda Click 125i. The i stands for intensity! It could also be I just made that up. If you do click on the link mine is a bit older and more weather-beaten but it’s rideable, passes what Thailand calls a safety inspection even with a broken front brake lever. Fear not, I got the brake lever repaired. Little over $7parts and…

Layered Sunset

Layered Sunset

This was shot off my balcony in Thailand. I happened to have my Nikon D5500 with the 55-200 lens on it and aimed it towards the beach. With the crop on the D5500 I get a more reach with that lens then I do with any other and it’s light and sharp. Using portrait orientation worked better for this image because I got the layering effect of the sky along with the buildings. It provides some visual interest that landscape…

Out Of Place

Out Of Place

Shot this off Walking St when I was up there just taking a walk. Strangely enough, during the day Walking St allows vehicles. This makes walking on Walking St a pain in the ass because you may get killed while taking photos. Then again, this is Thailand and you accept certain things regardless of the logic behind. Actually, there is logic, the trucks and cars need in to restock the bars and only time they can do that is during…

Pattaya City At Night

Pattaya City At Night

I have no idea where I shot this from. Think a walkway leading to a restaurant over the water. I just thought it was a cool shot but I totally forgot to bring my mini tripod and there wasn’t a rail I could set the camera on to hold it steady. So just cranked the ISO and hoped for the best. The people sitting on the jetty looking thing are actually fishing. I see Thais riding with small poles on…

The Lone Cloud

The Lone Cloud

Was just standing on shore and saw this scene and figured why not take a picture. The single clouds was the dominating object in the image but there was so much else that I just liked the total scene. I am not 100% sure where I took this image. I know I had my Sigma 17-70 on my Nikon D5500 but that’s about it. I believe I was near the Bali Hai but don’t quote me as I was wandering…

View From Central Festival

View From Central Festival

I had to stop at Central Festival Mall here in Pattaya looking for a decent camera store. Turns out I could have just skipped that entire process because all the stores didn’t have what I wanted. I have been spoiled by Amazon and easy access to camera gear. Sadly in Thailand there is no Amazon so you have to know a local place to source or import it in from the US and pray it arrives sometime before you die….

Off Shore

Off Shore

I snapped this while I was wandering along Walking St. I went into a beer bar complex that has a great view of Pattaya Bay. It was a private bar but I asked in Thai if I could and was told no problem since they weren’t busy. With Bali Hai pier under construction and the authorities finally cracking down on illegal parking of boats on the road and walkways (only took a decade or more) you see more boats moored…
