Past shots

Sawadee Khrap

I haven’t posted or for that matter done any Photoshop work for a long time  –   so today I started editing some old shots I have in Lightroom. DSCF1835-Edit-2 I particularly liked this one of Nut.   I don’t have any more of him but am hoping that he will model for more in the future.   We’ll see.   Anyway this is a start and it’s amazing how I’ve really gotten rusty in editing – or maybe it’s the old age and memory settling in – Hope he and all like it.  Hopefully post more in the near future.

Hmong–Bhubing Palace-Doi Suthep

Sawadee Khrap

I got a surprise call from a old friend from Pattaya, Edty, that he was in town and Thursday we took a trip to Doi Suthep.  First a stop at the Hmong village at the top of Doi Pui, then on to Bhubing Rajanives Palace – Royal residence in Chiang Mai20151224_141225 – spent a hour there seeing the sights and then on to Wat Phra That Doi Suthep . From here you get a spectacular view of Chiang Mai City.  20151224_152332 On the right side is the International Airport and 20151224_150616the “Old City” about in the center of the shot.  We got a lot of shots and so 20151224_140206I put them in a Slideshow Gallery.  This shot shows me pretty exhausted – lot of walking, good exercise but never the less very tiring.  When you come to Chiang Mai be sure and visit these sites – we took  a  “songtaew”, the Red truck Taxi, and a Golf cart tour at the Palace – total transportation cost about  1000 baht or  $28 for 5 hour tour.   Can’t beat the price and convenience.  Then there’s always renting a motorcycle – but not for me.

Love Art Park–Pattaya visit

Sawadee Khrap

If your visiting Pattaya – this is another new tourist attraction you shouldn’t miss – Love Art Park – Erotic Sculpture park   Soi 13/1 Na Jomtien, near the Phoenix Golf Course and Minosa.IMG_0920  IMG_0877  The 200 Baht admission (100 Baht Thai) is reasonable – you should plan on spending at least 2 hr there taking photos – excellent.  Too bad someone chopped off all the penis – would really look better as they were created – Damn critics and censors, but still a real fun place to visit and have your photos taken – I will definitely bring some boys here in the future. 

They are also open in the evenings and light up the statues – I bet this would be a terrific photo experience and what I will try when I go the next time with someone.

Here is a Gallery of photos taken – not all of them but a good selection –

Lakeland Water Cable Ski–Pattaya

Sawadee Khrap

As I have always said – Photography is the only hobby you can take to any other hobby and have a great time.              He went water skiing, I went shooting. _MG_0342 


I have no desire to try Cable Water Skiing, yet I spent a great 2 hrs. with a friend, Dan, at Lakeland.  Located off Sukhumvit Hwy, between Soi 98 and Chaiyaphruek 2 Rd. – easy to get to and offers an exciting day for all._MG_0555-Edit
