The Family Truckster

If you have ever seen National Lampoon’s Vacation the title makes sense.  This would be the Thailand version of the Family Truckster.

*Edit-I thought I caught it before the notifications went out but I didn’t so I’m just publishing it now.  Enjoy!

I was bored so I went to Baltimore for some photography as I just like the city.  It has a real vibe to me that DC is lacking.  I heard this guy way before I saw him but I knew I had to take the picture.  There was a police officer sitting in his car and he saw me bring the camera up and snap the guy on the bike and he just laughed because of how absurd it looked.

Alien Flowers

I am back from a long layoff.  I needed to take a break from photography and life in general for a bit.  I was in Thailand and didn’t get as many pictures as I liked and I still need to move them from my laptop to my main processing computer but they will eventually appear.

I make my triumphant return with this image.  I realize it’s in black and white and flowers should be in color but I was in a hotel in some nameless city at one point this year and they had these flower pictures in black and white that just fascinated me.  The one I kept looking at was a rose and since I didn’t have a rose handy I found someone in the office with a bunch of silk flowers that I have no idea what they are supposed to be but they worked perfectly.  I had my Panasonic G3 with a Minolta 55mm 1.7 lens on it that I needed to test before I sold it and snapped the image.  Perfect?  Not so much but it does have a weird alien feel to it and I like the way the black and white makes it more interesting and moody then some generic flower shot.
