Just a few takes before we went to "The Grand Palace" and "Wat Phra Kaew." More to follow. =)
Last minute point and shoot with my daughter before we left for Bangkok. Thanks to my handy Sony DSC-W380. Every shot was made on 'easy shooting' mode. I've always taken this camera for granted; used the iPhone for more spontaneous shots. After this shoot, I started to see it in a different light. It's the only camera I took on our trip to Bangkok. The Grand Palace was on our itinerary. I was quite tempted to bring the long lens, but I know I won't have fun if I carry the heavy stuff. The tiny SONY didn't disappoint me though. I will upload more photos soon..."SOON," is indeed becoming a very lonely word for me. =) Haist!
"Finally! Something wider than me!" =)))
"Charlie bit me!"

My daughter Fhau simply loves this garden at Savan Vegas. There's not enough time to capture her laughter, the twinkle in her eyes, and every smile on her lips. For several times, I chose to put down the lens and just watch her, as she basks under sun and giggle endlessly with her father. Oh, happy days! Priceless..
"Love the sculptures and the masks!"
“She did not know yet how sometimes people keep parts of themselves hidden and secret, sometimes wicked and unkind parts, but often brave or wild or colorful parts, cunning or powerful or even marvelous, beautiful parts, just locked up away at the bottom of their hearts. "
My daughter Fhau, is spending the Yuletide season at Savan Vegas Hotel & Casino. This is the first batch of her photo adventure. I guess I can say, that this is my happiest December in Laos.
Back from a mini hiatus...It's been months since I last made a decent photograph. Some things are slowly depleting me of creative energy. But then here I am with this abstract shot, painted with light..."There's no lie in her fire." You can say that again, dear...you can say that again.
To my alma mater...U.S.T. Go, Uste!
Supergirl, you're one of the most powerful creatures on the planet. If someone intelligent were to come after you, they wouldn't attack you directly. They'd try to trick you. Surprise you. Remember Supergirl... only your body's invulnerable.—Batman
One of the old photos I have of Patuxai, taken during my first visit to Vientiane a few years back. See more in random places.
To photograph a chicken takes patience and Olympic-class squatting ability. You must get down…wayyyyy down…into a squat position and stay there for about four hours while training your camera on the chicken and waiting for him or her to gaze in your direction. If you try and rush said gaze by, say, whistling, you will alarm the chicken into facing the wrong way, running the wrong way or taking a poop.--Robin Ripley
The paragraph above...so true! Photographing chickens not only challenges your skills as a photographer, it's also one of the ultimate tests of an individual's patience. Try it.
"If you trouble me, I will overlook you, and then your pigs will die, your horses stray, your cream turn sour, your barns be fired, your son have St. Vitus's dance, your daughter fits, and so on, woe on woe, till you are very probably starved to death in a ditch, by virtue of this terrible little eye of mine"
I don't really like the quote above, but it goes well with this photo. This is my most favorite charm, and I wear it everyday. I believe in it's power as an instrument of the Great Divine to ward off someone with the evil eye.
My life is part humor, part roses, part thorns.
...and am lovin' it!
The last time I checked, I still have eight cavity free incisors. Still grinding, man...still grinding!
Protect your creative life. Practice your work every day. Then, let no thought, no man, no woman, no mate, no friend, no religion, no job, and no crabbed voice force you into famine. If necessary, show your incisors.
