Hard work, hard work, hard work–isn’t it

Sawadee Khrap

Young David asked his wealthy grandfather, Sol, how he had made his money. Sol said, "Well, David, it was 1955, and I was down to my last five cents. I went to the local market and invested that five cents in a large apple. I spent the entire day polishing the apple and, at the end of the day, I sold the apple for ten cents."

"The next morning, I invested the ten cents in two large apples. I spent the entire day polishing them and I sold them at the end of the day for twenty cents. I continued this system for a month. Then Bubbie’s father died and left us five million dollars."

My Statue–or at least close & Adobe Cloud

Sawadee Khrap

Just digging through my old images and came across this one from 2008 that I took on the way to Doi Intanon in Chiang Mai.IMG_1627-Edit   Just before you turn onto the road to the mountain there’s a small ceramic factory and this statue is at it’s entrance -  Quite a piece of art, don’t you think.  I am going to take another look at my old images,  using the new “Cloud”  Lightroom 5.3  and Photoshop CC improvements to see if I can add new life to the images, or at least bring out the emotions I tried to capture,

And if you use either an old version of Lightroom or Photoshop – do yourself a great service and upgrade to the new Cloud versions – they are offering a Photographer’s special for $9.99/mo.  Bridge,  + Lightroom + Photoshop – a perfect combination and at a great price.  The new improvements are well worth the cost. Believe me, you won’t go wrong.

Pride-Party-2014

Here’s a promotional “Pride” party being put on at the Planet Earth Beach Club – Located pass Soi 15 on Jomtien Beach Rd.

Haven’t been there and maybe I can go to get some shots. I’ll try but no promises.

SORRY:   Little late in posting  – just receive the flyer yesterday at the beach.

Sounds like fun and a chance to check out the Club.

Don’t know who the “Sinners” are.

They even have authentic Italian Ice Cream.

I want to thank all those who visit my  blog – I use StatCounter to monitor traffic and it’s amazing to see where the visitors are located – Here is the map report of areas where todays morning traffic had originated.    Covers quite a territory for not doing any web promotion.

Thanks again.

Road Kill

Sawadee Khrap

Here’s a photo I ran across in gourmet foods from around the world section in a website – I won’t mention the site’s name but to me this looks like something I’d call road kill which was then thrown in a fire – I sure as hell would not want this in the middle of my dinner table.    Next it could be your dog.

I like lamb, but this is ridiculous – this image doesn’t make me want to jump in and chow down.     Does it for you?       What do you think ?         Want a slice?
