Welcome Arch To Pattaya Beach

Welcome Arch To Pattaya Beach

Normally I would try and center a photo like this by walking my happy ass out to the correct spot. In this case, I am not partial to trying to kill myself via bike or car so I took it on the side of the road. Since its the major entrance to Pattaya Beach Rd. from that direction it’s a busy little stretch of road. After the two bikes went by a plethora of cars came rolling in. It was…

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…

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…

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

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…
