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”

The Thing Is…

I have a very kind follower who wrote that I am an artist. She said something to the effect that I should embrace it. I would if I was an artist. But, I’m not. I’m not a lot of things. That’s okay with me. What I am is pretty simple. I’m a photographer who makesContinue reading “The Thing Is…”

I’ve been reviewing portraits. Since my newest portfolio is portrait-based, I have a lot of choices to make. What stays in? What goes out? Which picture is a hero picture? Which images support it? Lot’s of thinking to do. A lot of instinct too. But, it doesn’t stop there. There is a lot of dataContinue reading “A Little Truth”

This street food looks a lot like a fried egg on a tortilla. It’s not. The bread base is more like a crepe. The “egg white” is really a dollop of heavy sweat cream and the “yolk” is mango shavings. Yep. It’s sort of a Thai street food dessert. Like many Asian desserts, it is wayContinue reading “It’s Not What You Think”

Street Food

Let’s start today with a simple Fried Spring Roll as found on almost every Bangkok street corner. Freshly made and cooked  they. are tasty as well as inexpensive. In this image, the Spring Rolls are shown garnished with Basil. As for technical steps. This image is a mish-mash of plug ins. After correcting the imageContinue reading “Street Food”

Buddhist Wat

I wrote yesterday about one of the oddities in Albuquerque which is a full on Thai-styled Buddhist temple or wat. I learned that while the Vietnamese community is pretty strong in the city, the Thai community is not. So I asked the very obvious question, why is there a wat in Albuquerque? Nobody had theContinue reading “Buddhist Wat”
