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…

Around The Yard

Around The Yard

This set of images is really all about light for the most part. However, they were all shot around my Mom’s house in Fort Myers, Florida. I really never left her front or back yards. Well, one shot was technically on the neighbors but he doesn’t have a fence so it counts! Plus you can see my Mom’s fence so clearly it was around the yard. These images were shot on 2 cameras. The Sony A7ii using a 16-25mm 4.0…

My Evening View

My Evening View

I traded in my city view for something a bit more upscale in July. I deceided I’d had enough of Pattaya and moved further out and in exchange I got this for an evening view now. During the day the Gulf of Thailand is visible and I live on the 12th floor of a 15 story building. The only downside was the local pigeon population was using my balcony as a love motel and were fornicating endlessly besides crapping everywhere…

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…

Flowers For Valentine’s Day – Part Two

Flowers For Valentine’s Day – Part Two

I’ll finish up the set of flowers for Valentine’s Day. Normally I like to break these things up but my schedule has been hectic and these are already edited and ready to go so I’m going with it. This set is actually when I first started to shoot the US Botanic Garden Conservatory. When I bring stuff into Photoshop it goes from the last photo I brought in to the first. So I work backwards. I was too lazy to…

Flowers For Valentine’s Day – Part One

Flowers For Valentine’s Day – Part One

I had a request for flowers. It turns out I had recently shot some while I went on an adventure to the US Botanic Garden Conservatory. The entire reason I went to Botanic Garden Conservatory was to test out a couple lenses, a camera, and a flash I own. I had purchased a Sigma 24-70 2.8 and I had a Sigma 50mm macro to test. So I put them on a recently acquired Sony A7ii along with a Newer Flash…

Capitol Dome

Capitol Dome

I will admit that I was tempted to title this one something a little different. Something that Obi-Wan once said, “You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.” I just went with the building name instead. Why I was at Capitol Hill will remain unpublished for a bit but I had a few things I needed to test. Sometime in the distant past I purchased a Sigma 50mm macro for my Sony….
