The Boat

The Boat

Everyone has this idea that Thailand is a natural paradise full of wonder and pristine beaches. Oh, how wrong you are. That would be the TAT or Tourist Association of Thailand making you think that with carefully staged shots and the magic of Photoshop. When you live here you see a lot more of the real Thailand than they ever want you to see. It’s dirty and polluted like you would not believe. So when I took this image, I…

Spiritual Tree

Spiritual Tree

This is a spirit tree a very common sight around South East Asia. If you look you will see them constantly if you are paying attention. This one was in a Chinese temple. I could not begin to figure out why there is a motorcycle helmet on the tree except there were motorbikes parked behind me. I’ll just leap to a logical conclusion on that. Enjoy.

It’s All About The Face

It’s All About The Face

I think the title is obvious if you know the song and with the giant face in the photo, it helps make the point. This was taken at the Sanctuary Of Truth here in Thailand. Always worth a visit when you can actually leave your home country again or something. I did make it black and white because I blew the image out because my ISO was set to 1600 from shooting inside the building and forgetting to change it…

Making An Offering

Making An Offering

Taken at Wat Phra Chetuphon (Wat Pho) or the Temple Of The Reclining Buddha if you are inclined in Bangkok. You can buy a cup full of fake coins for 20 Baht and then make an offering to the small pots set around the reclining Buddha. This was a local Thai who was visiting. It should be noted that Thais get in for free, if you are a foreigner it’s 200 Baht. Sadly, Thai drivers licenses don’t count for being…

My Evening View

My Evening View

If the weather is decent I’m usually gifted a spectacular sunset since I live on the Gulf of Thailand and my condo looks out over it. Being on the 12th floor of a 15 story condo pays off in this case so I took this shot. I have been leaning more and more on my Nikon D5500 for shots. It’s light, I have 3 lenses that cover every range and did I mention it’s light? Even compared to my mirrorless…

Wat Phra Yai Pagoda

Wat Phra Yai Pagoda

Wat Phra Yai is the real name for what everyone else in Pattaya calls Big Buddha. Having seen Big Buddha more times than I care to admit I skip it now and head towards the Chinese Temple that most ignore. Meaning, it’s not jammed by a bunch of tourists being dropped off by the busloads. If you are ever in Pattaya and are like I rather see the Chinese Temple, just pull in at the top of the parking area…

Just A Bit Of Sun

Just A Bit Of Sun

I was down near the beach enjoying a beer at my local watering hole and wanted to grab some sunset photos. Sadly, where the bar is located versus where I live I missed the sunset for the most part. Hence the title, just a bit of sun. This was taken off Jomtien Beach with my Sony RX100iii which I am now just chucking in one of my pockets in a case and carrying around with me. This way I can…

Under The Pier And Dreaming

Under The Pier And Dreaming

This is underneath the pier at Fort Myers Beach in Florida. Guess that’s why I called it Under The Pier And Dreaming. I’m original like that. This was done in HDR using Aurora 2019. One image and done. I haven’t shot bracketed images in about forever when you can do HDR with one anymore. The program does a good job with just one image so why bother. Enjoy

Sunset Over The Pier

Sunset Over The Pier

This is the fishing pier at Fort Myer’s beach. Shockingly enough this was my first trip ever to Fort Myer’s beach so I really had no idea that the pier even existed. I set up my trip in the water as I took this photo. Some guy was behind me going what you shoot? I was like the sunset over the pier. He goes brilliant and busts out his cell phone for the same shot. He ended up following me…

Lily Pads And Reflections

Lily Pads And Reflections

This was taken at Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve when I went through there. There are a few areas where they have set up viewing platforms so I figured I might as well use them. I wanted to incorporate the lily pads and get the reflections in the image as well. I luckily took several images because the first image I worked on turned out not to be in focus. Good thing you can just copy settings in Lightroom and…
