Sheltered

This is from Thailand I shot a few years ago. No idea why I didn’t publish it. Likely because I had no idea how edit it.

I shot this in the Bali Hai area when I first went there on a motorbike. It was the first time I had gotten the nerve up to ride a bike there. All previous trips I relied on public transportation. With this trip I was with my friend who was an experienced rider. We ended up going all over the place. In fact, my first ride was some ridiculous ride into the middle of Rayong with nothing around for miles. The reason we went? Just because we could. While I don’t recommend riding to the middle of nowhere you first trip out on a bike. I do recommend getting a bike. The sense of freedom you get is well worth it.

This was shot on an Olympus EM5 with the Panasonic 20mm. I carried this under the bike seat and it served me well for wandering around type shots. When I went to edit this I kept it basic. Pushing micro 4/3 files can lead to weird artifacts. So basic adjustments then into Photoshop for a quick curves adjustment then some local dodging/burning.

Enjoy.

  1. That is a cool colored boat. I would not mind owning that one. I am amassed at the colors. I do not believe I have ever seen an expensive boat with many different bold colors in the US. Perhaps I am not thinking personal ownership with these boats but rather tourist boat service. Either way, they are very handsome. I enjoyed.
