In Another World


Thailand. The name conjures all sorts of thoughts, myths and feelings. Truth be told, once you get outside of big cities the country is incredibly beautiful. The people are very friendly and helpful. And, the cost of living is very inexpensive. Oh, and the food is amazing, especially the street food. City life can beContinue reading “In Another World”

You Got The Silver, You Got The Gold


A sia, part two. I used to travel to Thailand on holiday after working in Hong Kong, sometimes day and night. I liked being there. But, sometimes I could only take a few days so I went to Bangkok, which is a massive city. Some of it is very modern while other parts look likeContinue reading “You Got The Silver, You Got The Gold”

A Lot Of Places


W hat does it mean to travel? It means a lot of things to a lot of different people. Some do it to relax by a pool in some place other than where they live. Some travel to learn. Others go on safaris. Some travel to see famous places. Some travel to eat. Others travelContinue reading “A Lot Of Places”

Something Noisy


I thought I ‘d start June with a bang. An explosion of motion.  Just a bunch of light, color and blur.  The leading lines are fun, but that’s about all. I made this picture on the streets of Bangkok. Thailand. The content? Well, cars and buses and a bit of the surrounding buildings. But youContinue reading “Something Noisy”

Working


Working is good for us. It’s what motivates us. it’s what gives us clarity. It’s what gives us fulfillment. So, “they” say. “They” may be right if the Buddhist monk is just doing the next thing that is front of him. In many ways, his work in this image just illustrates and old saying aboutContinue reading “Working”

It was Hot


I enjoy traveling by train so much so that even when I’m not traveling, I sometimes visit interesting train stations. I really enjoy going to the main train station in Bangkok, Thailand. It is called Hua Lamphong and is in the Pathum Wan District of the city. It was built in and 1916 and servesContinue reading “It was Hot”

Zoom Zoom


Thai speed. I made this picture a few years ago on the streets of Bangkok. Thailand. I’ve always enjoyed photographing subjects in motion and making them look and feel like they are in motion. Generally, that means working at night for the drama and exposing at f 5.6 and letting the shutter speed fall whereContinue reading “Zoom Zoom”

Bangkok Mist


Sometimes, I feel like just darkening things up a bit things up a bit. This is another kind of experiment. It’s not very pretty and I’m not sure why I did it and, more to the point, kept it. I guess I’m attempting to do something more movie like. I’ve always been drawn to endContinue reading “Bangkok Mist”

A Coke and a Prayer


Something like that, anyway. After all my poking around temples and wats in Asia I came to realize that Buddhist monks, especially the young ones, are pretty much just like any other person you might meet on the street. They go shopping. I run into them in the high-tech shopping malls looking a computers. TheContinue reading “A Coke and a Prayer”
