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….

View From Home

This honestly is one of the views I get when I leave my building and ride the half mile or so to Pattaya Beach. I have taken for granted I live in a beach town and fairly close to the Gulf of Thailand. Its just not my normal path on my daily wanderings. Living in a beach town doesn’t mean  you actually go to the beach. You just know its there and if you are inclined then you can go…

Going Fishing

Going Fishing

This is another from the archives. Most of the ones I have been publishing lately are. This was taken on the beach in Thailand just as night was settling in. Interesting fact in Thailand is that you will rarely see a Thai on the beach during the day. Sure, some may be working but the reality is that it’s super hot. Thai’s seem to be smarter than us tourists in that they don’t want to bake in the Southeast Asian sun….

Dusk On The Beach

Dusk On The Beach

This is one from Thailand I never got around to editing. Just liked the water and the twinkle of lights. I alternate between HDR and non-HDR. It totally depends on my mood. I tend to shoot three brackets for most things unless I know it isn’t going to work. Then I’ll shoot just one. I was in full HDR mode with my A7R when I shot most of the image in Thailand at the time. While I understood how to…

Leaving Shore

Leaving Shore

I seem to have a thing for nautical photos when I’m not editing architectural photos. This one was taken in Thailand with a Ricoh GR. Go to any tourist beach in Thailand and you will see a few things. People selling you stuff you don’t want or need. People trying to convince you to rent a jet ski. People convincing you to take a speedboat to whatever island happens to be near. I highly recommend not doing any of these…

On To The Gulf

On To The Gulf

This is another random snap I took while I was in Thailand. I was walking along the beach just killing time and saw the trees framing the view and thought it would make a nice image. Since I had my Canon S100 with me I just grabbed it and fired off the shot. This is a common scene on the beaches of the Gulf of Thailand. Personally, never rent a jetski in Thailand because scams are so common they make…

Point On The Beach

Point On The Beach

The snow has stopped but it will be around for some time. The area I am in got hit with 2 feet or around .6 meters. For inquiring minds, hell no I haven’t been out. It’s cold and I’m delicate. Since its still cold I went ahead and did another beach picture from Thailand. This was shot on Pattaya Beach just down from the Dolphin roundabout where Beach Road begins.   This was shot on my Ricoh GR which I…

Stretch of Beach

Stretch of Beach

I know I promised a series on my triumphant (not really) return but I ran into a problem. I haven’t had to curate anything resembling a series in awhile so I got caught up on what-is-what. I have some very specific ideas on what I want to do with those images that I don’t want to pt something into a series that I feel should not be there. If you have never done image curation it can be nerve shattering…

Selfie At Sunset

Selfie At Sunset

This was shot on the beach obviously. One of the interesting things about the beach is you rarely see a Thai out there in the day unless under the umbrellas. It’s a social thing with dark skin. For an outsider looking in the dark skin issue is a bit weird but when you go shopping you will see nothing but whitening creams even if its everyday lotion that does zero for whitening skin. So when I was shooting at sunset…

The Low Tide Smooths

The Low Tide Smooths

I was getting creative by the time I took this one off the beach. I had experimented before with dropping my tripod almost to ground level and firing off some shots just to change the perspective. I think with this image it really works. I really wanted the rocks to be dominate in the foreground while making the sky and water look smoother. While I’m not 100% happy with how I smoothed out the sky its vastly improved over the…
