In the Ampawa Floating Market, there is a nice live band restaurant called Baan Thong Boran. The owner got me to do some photography work and made a few posters. Mention my name will get you a discount!ShareTweet
Enjoy their stunts. These crazy little pigs. I used my Canon SX10 – no flash shots. Their colour came out brilliant on the natural colour of the brown seat. Previously I used a white sheet. This looks way better and brightness was diffused evenly.
More pigs coming soon.ShareTweet
Today I received an international phone call from my brother who is enthusiastic that his friends are enthusiastic after spotting the photos of the Bali expeditions by motorbikes that we did for the past 2 years.
We have one upcoming trip to Northern Thailand. Winter biking in January 2011 to Pai, Mae Hong Son Province. Apparently this is something his friends and classmates were daydreaming for their past 10 placid years of their midlife. The drudgery of going to work. Earning money. Paying bills. Kids. House. Keeping up with XBox 360, Canon EOS 5D Mark II, and iPhone 3Gs, plus 200 DVDs isn’t what they thought life should be for a middle-age person. But nobody dared to venture out of their comfort zone mind. Yes I am wrong. Those above isn’t comfort zone. It is mundane, repetitive, fearful way of living life. Living Large. But really fear.
So when they saw the photos of my brother on a “bebek” (duck bike, aka. modern Honda 125 cc automatic scooter called Vario) they began to ping their inner childhood and miss-called my brother. Miss call: this phrase doesn’t mean someone misses you. It means to call someone, and then to hang-up immediately hoping they will More >
The weather was extremely hot. The ground cracks like in Tanzania during the dry season, it was hot as soon as the sun rises in Pai, Mae Hong Son – at 6am in the morning. To break that, we had to be up early to get to the waterfalls. That was the plan. Some little expedition to a nearby waterfall on some 30 minutes of biking.
We got there just early. The sun was up and was just starting to burn. Well it was a waterfall and we wanted a good pool. The most accessible watering hole was too normal. So we took a little trail following some pipes that were leading upwards to the water source. Yes – man made pipes were already snaking to the source of the waterfall for the human population.
Along the way, we spotted this – amazing black coloured ants with spikes on their backs.

One morning, I got lucky. It was a hot bright day outside, but as I operate my dark room, it never occurred to me the bright sun lights are awaiting to prick my skin and distort my eyes. But alas, my eyes picked up a creature known for centuries that flew amongst the dinosaurs and antipodes of a land before time.
It sat silently on the little pieces of tiny stones are debris on the front of my studio room. A passing car would have disrupted its meditative state. Or even me perhaps. Not to chance with the space-time continuum, I hurried back to grab my camera – Canon SX10.ShareTweet
