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…

All In The Details

All In The Details

Taken at the Sanctuary of Truth here in Thailand. Always worth a visit. I have to be honest and say I wasn’t sure there was going to be an image today. One of the benefits of keeping the same publishing schedule but living on the other side of the world is I do the image daily and publish it the same day it goes live. The issue facing me today is I had to go pickup a friend in Bangkok…

Temple Wall

Temple Wall

This is a shot from the inside of the Sanctuary of Truth. I never published it before because I didn’t think I could make a decent image out of it. When I took this images and all the images the last time I was at the Sanctuary of Truth I was using adapted Sony Alpha lenses. They were cheaper stuff I picked up off of eBay or other places so I could have some glass to use with my then…

Sanctuary Of Truth

Sanctuary Of Truth

Took this a few years back but never published it so I figured why not. So I went ahead and ran it through. Sanctuary of Truth isn’t really a temple even if it does look like one. It’s a tourist attraction only and you can wander through with a guide or not. It’s a cool place to visit and I hope to in the future get a night shot of the place. Might need to “pay a small fee” to…

Temple Through The Jungle

Temple Through The Jungle

I indicated yesterday I was playing with the archives even though I am sitting on a thousand plus new images. As I have mastered various techniques and software I just feel the need to address some of the stuff I did before (not sure if I published this one or not). This is the Sanctuary of Truth in Thailand. It’s not really a temple at all. It’s a handcarved tourist attraction that has been under construction¬†since I first ventured to…

The View Out

The View Out

This was shot at the Sanctuary of Truth in Thailand last November. I need to tell the back story of this image. Not that the shot itself was special, I setup the tripod and pointed out. No, the story is I have attempted to edit this image no less than 5 different times and I have about 8 hours worth of work on it. I have routinely just trashed my edits and went and did something else. I was watching…

Enlightenment Above

Enlightenment Above

I still have lots of images from various adventures that I just never publish. As I shoot other stuff and now have a back catalogue to work off of and working on shooting a series I have the freedom to bounce around. Since its freezing cold and I am missing Thailand I figured why not revisit the Sanctuary of Truth. The first tourist¬†place I ever went to in Thailand that didn’t involve a bar. This is a portion of the…

The Grand Entrance

The Grand Entrance

This is the main entrance to the Sanctuary of Truth. I am patently amazed that I was able to get this image because its normally full of people coming and going. Still, I learned that its better to hit the tourist sites later in the day instead of the morning to avoid the crowds which did allow me to shoot without the constant worry of someone walking into my shot. For inquiring minds it is HDR. I know everyone loves…

Shadows Of A Seawall

Shadows Of A Seawall

This is actually from the Sanctuary of Truth which sits out in a small peninsula in the Gulf of Thailand and is surrounded by a seawall. The structure you see the the shadows of looks more like a gatehouse so that boats can be launched safely as the water can be rough at times. I took this shot on top of the gatehouse type structure. There were stairs leading up so I figured why not. No idea if I was…

Stairway To The Gods

Stairway To The Gods

This is another shot from the Sanctuary of Truth here in Thailand. This is the back entrance stairs to gain access to the inside of the temple. I just liked how the stairs looked with the wood tones changing between the natural, the orange, and the green. You must remember that all this is hand carved using traditional tools and there are no nails holding it together. It’s all done with wood dowels. Enjoy!
