Complete Peace...

One thing I find I don't do enough of is to photograph more people, though I think I'll be doing a lot more and more of that as I settle in to life in Thailand.  The streets are full of such great characters, that it would be an absolute shame not to attempt to capture at least some of it.  Take this fellow, for example.  Not a care in the world, it seems.  I want to imagine that he sleeps and dreams well.  I was not too keen on waking him to find out though.

Dreams of Angkor Wat

There is so much to see here in Thailand, that one could spend several years trying to explore everything it has to offer, and barely scratch the surface.  It's quite daunting, quite frankly, but in a great way.  Still, I do dream of exploring neighboring countries, like Burma, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia.  And, speaking of Cambodia, Angkor Wat, in Siem Reap, is at the top of my list of places to visit.  Have you been there already?  If so, do you any recommendations for the best way to enjoy a visit to that location?  By the way, the word Angkor means city, and the word Wat means temple; thus the translation for Angkor Wat is "city temple".  Did you know that?  I snapped this one with an old iPhone I had with me while visiting the Dream World amusement park in Bangkok, Thailand; I used a few filters on the iPhone to get this look.

Wai ask Wai... (for the uninitiated, the 'Wai' is the Thai hand gesture my daughters are making in greeting)

The Man Behind the Lens

While downtown in Bangkok to hangout at the Elle Thailand Fashion show with the family (great show, by the way), I spotted this dude in the midst of a model shoot.  I grabbed this shot and showed it to him on the back of the camera, with him pretty surprised that a tiny camera could grab such a shot.  That prompted a short discussion on why I had switched from a big Digital SLR to my svelte Sony A7r.  Interestingly, after I promised to send him the final shot once processed, he had me pose with his model, a shot he sent me in exchange for the photo of him.  He suggested I should come out to his next model shoot, which I might very well do.  Should be fun foray into a genre of photography I have not yet explored as much as I would care to do.

Curved Reality

I remember when I first visited one of the mega malls here in Bangkok, to be greeted upon exiting the escalator onto the electronics floor. There in front of me was a super thin panel, curved screen Ultra HD (4K) wall of wonder, much like the one advertised in this photo I snapped and post-processed with my old iPhone 4 (my 5s died on me weeks ago, sadly).  It was love at first sight.  The only problem is that I don't really watch TV that much, save for a few favorite TV shows, and then only via iTunes or alternate download source (shows like 'Luther', 'Sherlock', 'Being Human' and 'Game of Thrones'.  I suppose I could use it with my XBox One, no?  Or maybe to play some great live concerts/music movies, like 'Coldplay Live 2012' or 'Pearl Jam Twenty' on Netflix?

Deconstruct

While there are, of course, the typical tourist sites to explore and photograph here in Bangkok, Thailand, there is so, so much more.  Like any city, some of the more ubiquitous subject matter include construction site, in all states of completion, like this one here.  To get that miniature, toy-like, effect you see here, I put myself above the location, at one of the BTS Skytrain Station, and then used a tilt-shift filter to finish the look.

Bangkok, Thailand is home to some pretty awesome malls, one of which, Siam Paragon, houses the fabulous Siam Ocean World aquarium.  Most definitely worth the visit if you are in the area.

Thanks, +Luis dos Santos. I suppose that is indeed the nature of abandonments. Considering it is gone, I am very glad I shot several photos there.
