Over Bangkok

New Insta360 One X Camera

I’m loving this thing! It’s so much better than the previous one… shooting at 5.7K! Be sure to check out my updated Kit.com to see it my gadgets list!

Daily Photo – Over Bangkok

I only had one night in Bangkok, but it wasn’t nearly as exciting as that song would indicate. I was pretty exhausted, but I did find this cool rooftop restaurant to have a great dinner with amazing views. Right after this, a huge thunderstorm started, and I was out without an umbrella. It was at least a 15-minute walk back to my place (I stayed at the St. Regis – super nice!), and I could not decide if I wanted to get soaked or wait it out. Eventually, the universe delivered me a perfect umbrella that already had the St. Regis logo on it! I was like… hey, that’s kinda weird. But I took it as a sign… a sign to use an umbrella.

The Bangkok Airport

Grunge Level 1000!

And here’s one of the first photos I took of this airport, many years ago! 🙂

Stuck in Customs in Space I love this shot!  It came out wicked. I used to say wicked a lot in grade school and I still like saying it.  This may or may not make me lame, and I can't be objective about such things.This is the airport in Bangkok, Thailand.  I am not sure who the architect is, but it came out quite inspired.  Taking photos of beautiful architecture is somewhat of a sport of mine.  I want to try to honor the lines and the textures via a good composition and a good HDR treatment.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.

Daily Photo – The Bangkok Airport

I spent about four hours here each direction, back and forth from Germany. I love this airport and it’s where I took one of my first HDR photos that made me so happy. It was SUPER GRUNGY, as you can see above. This one is a bit different… another interpretation maybe! 🙂

A sudden interest in Bangkok!

I get weekly status reports from these various statistic plugins that are hidden all over this site. I don’t know why I have them installed or what they are supposed to tell me, other than random bits of information from which I am supposed to intuit 2.0 swarm behavior. But I do see interesting things like everyone seems to be looking at a lot of my work from Thailand. I don’t know why this is… but here are a few of my favorites from that region:

Tearing Through Bangkok in a Longboat

I rented a longboat for the afternoon… it was just me and my melancholy captain, tearing trough the quay and tiny canals around Bangkok together. For 3 hours, it was a great 10 dollars!

Dress Shopping on the River

I bought a lot of stuff I may not have needed and ate a lot of fruit that would have been better off uneaten…

Twisted Inside the Fiber

This is a very unusual shot. You probably did not need me to tell you that.

Kung Fu Hustle

Here is an old woman I met in the back streets of Bangkok. She was with her granddaughter and they were serving soup out of their garage / kitchen / home.

Here is another temple I found while getting lost on purpose through the steamy backroads of Bangkok.

Chinatown in Bangkok

Every now and then I would pass an area of Chinatown which smelled, well, kinda like this…
