Fishing Boats At Wongamat Beach

Fishing Boats At Wongamat Beach

I am clearly into small fishing boats based on all the photos I have taken recently. These boats were part of the fleet at Wongamat Beach. There were a ton onshore and I guess these came in late and needed to be moored offshore or the owners like a good swim in the morning. It’s a mystery that I have no interest in solving. I clearly just subconsciously love boats only, not the fishing. Enjoy. Advertisements

Pattaya Bay from Wongamat Beach

Pattaya Bay from Wongamat Beach

Took this while I was wandering down in Wongamat Beach. It’s actually a really good view of Pattaya Bay and Pattaya City towards Walking St. You can also see Pratumnak Hill and the ever-present spire I look out to form my own condo which is Dongtan Beach. Oh, if you are wondering you can walk down to the Pattaya City sign. There is a park up there. You can also see Pattaya’s biggest disaster which is the building to the…

Modernity And Traditional In Thailand

Modernity And Traditional In Thailand

This was taken off Wongamat Beach in Thailand. It’s interesting to see a full-blown local fishing area next to these very expensive tourist and ex-pat condos. The condos are all private beaches that are maintained and Wongamat is a rocky little beach used mostly by locals because parking and public access is so limited. It’s a bit of a contrast that lends it’s self to the real Thailand and not the postcard images the tourist industry wants you to see….

Around The Beach

Around The Beach

This shot is actually from Thailand! The place I live now but haven’t had time to do photography because I’m generally busy doing other things. This is Wongamat Beach which is technically a private beach area but there is public access if you can find it. It’s about a 10 or 15 minute bike ride from me and then weaving through side streets, called a soi here to find the public access. It’s generally considered one of the nicer beaches…

Rocky Shores of Thailand

Rocky Shores of Thailand

I shot this when I was in Thailand last year. I have so many images I never published because I just didn’t know what to do with them. I have no exact idea where I was when I shot this. I started at Wongamat Beach and just started walking taking images with my camera. It’s slightly weird that I keep dipping into my archives because I have a huge volume of images I have shot and just haven’t touched. I…

Lounging By The Sea

Lounging By The Sea

One from the Thailand archives when I was strolling along Wongamat Beach, well rocky shore to be more honest. I caught this guy just lounging on the rocks looking out into the Gulf of Thailand and enjoying the view. If you are wondering what that wooden case is you would not guess it in a million years unless you have been to Thailand. It holds lottery tickets. The seller was just out of frame and I have no idea what…

From Shore to Sky

From Shore to Sky

This is one from Wognamat Beach in Naklua, Thailand. The skies were threatening and I just liked how it works with the water and buildings. One of the interesting things I have discovered while shooting here in Thailand is that sand and tripods aren’t the best of friends. Tripods tend to sink it the sand which can cause the image to shift from frame to frame. Wognamat’s beach was better than Jomtien’s because it was course sand versus the finder…

After The Rain

After The Rain

This is the side soi (street) that gets you Wongamat Beach since most of the access is blocked by large condo buildings and hotels. I guess to keep the riffraff like me out who aren’t interested in spending a lot of money for an oceanside view. I’ll take the workman like soi I am staying on any day of the week. I like nodding to the fried rice vendor or the pad thai guy or the small little restaurant setup…

Sunset Over The Gulf

Sunset Over The Gulf

Not sure how I feel about one. The colors are nice but I think I lost some detail when I did the conversion into HDR. I am still playing with Aura HDR, the new tool from Macphun so learning how to use it at the same time I am creating images. It’s more powerful than Photomatix but there is always a learning curve when you switch software. This was shot off of Wongamat Beach here in Thailand. The storms had…

Lost

Lost

If you don’t pay close attention it looks like she is meditating over the Gulf of Thailand. Reality is she was playing on her phone and oblivious to what was going on around her. She was with 2 other guys who were fishing. Not sure if she was a sister or girlfriend of one of the guys but she was in her own world with the phone. She had no idea I was clearly taking photographs of her. It was…
