Just a quick blog on my uploaded video on YouTube. Please take a look at http://youtu.be/Uc6O249xwzs this is my first photo essay and upload, tile is “Lost”. I have been looking for a project for my photography and came up with this photo essay on homeless and less fortunate people.
The picture below is not included in the video, but the imagine looks at the many people who go through the trash to find anything that may make money in Thailand.

Theme: Patterns

I know of several photographers who are into patterns with their work, so I have added a selection of my own. These feature later in this blog. Below is a short story of why my entry into the theme of patterns.

The interest of a pattern theme came from my wife, who is an art teacher. We were driving around one day and she mentioned that in her class she needed to introduce art works containing patterns, so that her students may take inspiration and incorporate these patterns in their work. Passing through the country side, I said take a look at the that pattern in the field of tapioca plants in lines. My wife doesn’t have a camera, so I clicked off a number of pictures for her to use with her class of students.

When we look around we see patterns in everything. Reading an article from Light Stalking

In this article you will find information on patterns. Take a look, the site is also dedicated to general photography, including post processing.

Give it a go try looking for patterns to photograph, you never know what you may find.

Theme: Rust, Decay and Beauty

I chose the title of this theme, due to the way I view rust and decay as beauty. The colors are very vibrant and rich.
Many artist feature their work with a rust and decay theme.Tony Reason, a British Artist: “Rust is a powerful pigment, with its vivid hues of red and orange that it lends to all sorts of metals”. He sees great beauty in rust, because he has made it the center of much of his work: giant metal panels with rust designs and even rust mixed with wax and painted on canvas.

The photographic scope for taking pictures is endless, we see rust and decay in our everyday lives. You only need to look at a house left unattended for sometime to see the state at which it has turned into. Maybe, next time you go out for a walk or go to a city just take a look, remember take your camera, you may capture a few interesting imagines.

The pictures in the gallery were all taken during my visit to the UK. Take a look, and I hope you get inspired to click off a few next time out.

Theme: Transportation

Working through the mountains of pictures or should I say folders on my hard drive I came across a number of pictures featuring transport. So for this edition of themes, I have put together a series of pictures which feature methods of transporting people and products. Many of the pictures were taking in South East Asia, but a number are from my vacation in the UK.

My favorite is the picture of the A380 aircraft coming into land. I live quite close to U-tapao airport, Rayong and Thai Airways conduct maintenance on their fleet of aircraft at this site. I saw the A380 circling around, so off with the camera and down to the airport clicked off a few pictures. The aircraft is an incredible sight as it flies overhead.
Just a side note: The U-tapao airfield was used by the US during the Vietnam War, the B52 bombers were stationed at this site, so the runway is long enough to accommodate the A380.

As always please comment on blog and pictures.
