Fender In Windowlight

Came home and the sun was setting in just the right way, giving the afternoon light a warmer tone I have yet to come by (in this room anyway). Needed to shoot something before it was gone and what could be more perfect than a beautiful clear lacquered Fender Stratocaster. The yellowish wood gave me different tones from different angles and with a 50mm 1.8f on a 5D, the corners had a natural lens vignetting that I liked.

 Just had to shoot a self portrait as well.

Wish I had someone else to shoot in this light as well, it was near perfect widow light and a handheld point-at-yourself seldom get the right angles (see above, the doorknob was spot on!!)

Beyond The Point Of No Return

You ride past these places on almost any road in rural Thailand. Trashed little temples left to the elements by the road. People still offer a can of pop to the spirits just in case they did't got totally burned or smashed. Religion (All of them!!) is for me something really interesting and worth spending time studying and learn some about. The more you learn and study about this theme the more clear it is that it all evolves around the glorious three i.e. Power, Money...and Fear. Same topics as the best heavy metal that ever been made, yeah man...that's my religion! Live till you die.
While the traffic was speeding by just a couple of meters behind me kneeling in the ash and dust to get close angles, a man we would call the town's fool kept me company. Who is to say that this man with his taped spectacles and fucked up way of going about his business doesn't have it all figured out and can see more clearly what's up that any of us of the so called normal people can? While steering by in a VIP SUV with fake friends in the back seat and a grand life scheme written down on a forgotten note, you rarely see the man on the side of the road looking at you but through you with crossed fingers.

All by Canons simple and cheap 50mm, 1.8f prime plastic lens, a given back-up lens and many times better than the other so called up-scale lenses due to its light weight and small size. Fast enough for most situations as well.



I've never been a beach person in the sense of spending time on the sand to get to a certain skin tone. But having had a deep love for the ocean since early age, I can't let some sand in my sneakers get the upper hand. Since I relocated to Thailand I have had a more close reach to the ocean than before and this is pretty cool. Pretty low key tones in this environment and the lines I use to search for are harder to see down the shore line, but there are always some stuff that catch my interest. A totally weather broken Barbie doll gives you the truth,  "It" have never looked better than this one.

Beach Master

Pretty cool to say the least.
