The guard dog Shogun

Sep 10, 2012

Shogun is an Asian dog breed locally known in Thailand as Bangkeaw. He's body, a medium-sized Spitz-type dog, is well proportioned with a smooth gait.  He looks like a lion because of thicker coat around his neck, back and chest. I met Shogun during the Eikona camp held at Wangthong District last month and had since enjoyed his company.
As we were talking to the headmaster of the conservation centre where we had the camp, I took noticed of Shogun having the strong liking of posing. Even a close up shot with the usual tongue out was something natural for him lol.
So here he is with the sort of a warm smile that always accompany his fierce yet friendly nature. Shogun - the Bangkeaw guard dog of Phitsanulok Wildlife Conservation Development and Extension Station.

Wat Phra That Lampang Luang

Feb 10, 2012

I made a post about Wat Phra That Lampang Luang which you can read HERE. Pictures posted there were of course different to the pictures posted here in terms of the angles, although quite similar. Anyhow, we arrived during noon time and I was awaken when the bus we were on came to a halt. We were then asked if we would like to see the temple.
It was my second visit to the temple. The first time was in 2008 when I was just finding my way in Thailand. I cannot carry a good conversation then even just asking the name of the person I was talking to. But now, I could speak a basic passable Thai. Four years perhaps is already way too long to be able to comprehend the very basic.
Well, there were several tourists taking photos using the temple and the horse carriages located outside as their backdrop. If you happen to forget or don't have a camera handy - you can ask the self-proclaim photographers outside the temple to press their shutters for you. They will then look for a perfect spot to have your photos taken. With that tourists arriving hour after hour in great numbers, it clearly showed me that Wat Phra That Lampang Luang is one of Lampang's treasures.

Chiang Mai at Night

Jan 28, 2012

These were taken on New Year's Eve in Chaing Mai. The gang decided to head out to the city to welcome 2012 and of course, witness the incredible display of fireworks and other things Chiang Mai has to offer. Our driver dropped us off somewhere. We didn't have any slightest idea where exactly we were that time.
We thought of having dinner first since everyone were starving. We chilled out in a small Chinese restaurant by the road with a very fast service which left us full in minutes. After a few minutes more, we got going.
And just before we reached the end of the road where the party was taking place, I took couple of shots. So here are they - Chiang Mai at night!

My Childhood Wheel

Jan 9, 2012

I was probably in kindergarten when my father brought the whole family at the city carnival one fine night. Obviously my folks played the betting game while us, the kids, were wowed by the rides. My elder sister asked me if i would like to experience riding the big rolling machine which at that time, we both didn't have any idea what that thing was.

It was the shouts, the smiles, and the happy facial gestures rolled into one of those people riding the thing that prompted me to say yes. I was excited thinking it's gonna be a heck of ride. Well, it really was. I can't recall if it was my father or my mother who joined us. Of course adult supervision was implemented otherwise, we won't be allowed to ride. 

Yes you are right. It was the wheel - the ferris wheel. And that was the time i knew i have acrophobia or fear of heights. That was the moment i was exposed to heights that i started shouting in fear whilst crying to stop the wheel. If i am standing at the very high places and there is little or no protection at all - i always experience panic attack, making me agitated in getting safety. Anyways, this wheel was in Chiang Mai that reminded me my happy but scary childhood moment with the ferris wheel.

First Light

Dec 14, 2011

All the photos posted here are shots made by an amateur photogrpaher using the automatic setting. As a newbie, manual setting is but a foreign word to me.  I've learned how to do it and make use of my camera the way pros use theirs on December 12 when my friends who are into real photography introduced it to me.

An early morning it was when the day was but freezing. We decided to roam the streets of Phitsanulok and named our photo session "First Light". It was difficult for me as i have no strong background in real photography. For me, taking photos is just a hobby and not a passion. However, upon learning that i can make dark objects appear lighter by adjusting the settings, it took my eagerness like a skyrocket.

So here are my shots with the manual settings. Not still as amazing like the pros but surely made my day lighter as i took them during the "First Light" session. Hehe....
