Well we are in the rainy season now â€“ what a beautiful day today â€“ cool, clear and bright. Here is a panorama from my balcony looking towards Pattaya. The 3 month rainy season, till Oct, will bring in cooler days and especially nights, frequent rains to clear the air and greenâ€™ify (is that a word) the landscape. About to receive my new camera, a Canon G15, which will make it easier to capture spontaneous images of the area. Not as intrusive as my big 7D ( that will be used of special occasions and studio work). Iâ€™m really looking forward to shooting on the beach and in town â€“ easy to carry and not as obvious so I can capture more natural images. Just had the car tuned up so I am ready to go exploring again.
As for the above image â€“ it you look closely in the middle right of the image you can see the â€œRipley’s Believe it or Notâ€ balloon ride cabled above the show room on Pattaya 2nd Rd. I havenâ€™t been up there yet, donâ€™t really have a desire to float above the city.
So for the next 6 months, beautiful weather. If your planning a visit to Thailand â€“ now is the time â€“ less tourists, cooler nights , low season pricing, great cloud formations (and lightning shows if your into that) â€“ excellent for photography — and then the 3 month busy tourist season starts.
The boys are all here, just check out â€œGayRomeoâ€ for a date â€“ most are now using the web from their iPad or smartphone, although the bars and clubs are still in full swing too. Come and enjoy.
