What’s Cookin’ ?

More from the little sub-soi. This man is making fried fish balls. He’s taking them from the fryer and placing them into a bowl. As an old colleague, Larry Meeks, once said in Singapore when he was offered fish balls, “why, fish don’t have balls,” in his very Texas accent. I guess you had toContinue reading “What’s Cookin’ ?”

Morning Walk

Whenever I travel to a new location — or, in this case, and old location but a new neighborhood — I like to take a morning stroll through the neighborhood. In this case, I’m working in the Bangkok district of Silom which is about 5 minutes walk from the legendary Patpong. Unlike, Patpong which isContinue reading “Morning Walk”

Study in Purple.

Sheer luck. I happened to make a rather slow time exposure from the driver’s seat.

Of course, I added a little something extra. But, notContinue reading “Study in Purple.”

In the 1800’s it was the equivalent of Honolulu’s Hotel Street during World War. Later, it became an arts and antiquities center locatedContinue reading “The Last”

Of course, there is the extreme…

Sometimes in my post production plug-in mean – derings I just go too far. Or do I? This is Hollywood Road in the small Chinese town of Hong Kong. It is the fine art center of the island. You can buy every kind of art on this street, including the very latest and most cuttingContinue reading “Of course, there is the extreme…”

When It Doesn’t Work

Sometimes post production plug-ins go a little too far. Unfor – tunately, the comp – ression software for this blog hid most of the overdone work making it simply look like wet hair. However, if you were to look at a larger image, you would see that the hair blocks up and it looks oilyContinue reading “When It Doesn’t Work”
