Thai Motorbikes – Part 2

Concluding the Thai motorbike series today. One of the things I get asked is why is the motorbike so prevalent in Thailand and Asia for that matter. The answer is they are a cheap form of transportation. Cars are expensive because they are usually imported in. This puts them out of reach for a lot of families. Cars are just now becoming affordable in Thailand but still, the down payment on a car is more than buying a motorbike outright. There is also traffic in the urban areas and cars aren’t as mobile as bikes are for weaving through traffic. So they are far more practical as transportation.

I forgot to mention I like to thank Adrenaline Mob and Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood for providing the editing music. The Clapton and Winwood was from a concert they did together at Madison Square Garden in New York City and they played the entire set together doing their own songs and covers. Good album and worth checking out.

Enjoy!

Adventures in Modern Travel

While these aren’t images from my latest flight it is representative of modern travel anymore. You just rush from one place to the next. Another airport; another destination. They start to blur after awhile. I don’t even pay attention anymore as the faces and places blur by. So enjoy the adventures in modern travel.

Plane Fun

I shared one image from the plane show I went to which was the Japanese plane. I shot a bit more but I wasn’t in a position to process them as I was on travel and forgot to bring a mouse which makes masking a bit of a pain without it. I wanted to shoot the planes differently then just the normal. I have a think for airplane engines in that I like the symmetry of them so I took a wee bit more of them then anything else but the angles on the rest give a different perspective of the planes I hope. Enjoy.

Counting Boats

For some reason the numbers on the boats prows just fascinated me. This series almost was in black and white but I did a little extra editing and left it in color and pleased with it. Photographically speaking, not that exciting. This was me seeing how much detail I could get out the images. There is a lot going on around the boats that draw the attention. I wanted that detail to be involved versus just the numbers. Enjoy.

Postcards from the Causeway

The Causeway is a weird area that is on the ocean that is outside of Panama City proper. It took about 45 minute by taxi and the guy just dropped me off at the furtherest point and off I went. There are lots of marinas in the area and you can see lots of shipping traffic and boats moored just off shore. I have a few more to share after this but sadly my visit was cut short because as I was halfway down the path heading to a what I think was a science museum the heavens opened up. I got lucky and a taxi just drove by and I flagged him down and jumped in saving myself and my gear from getting soaked.
