    Thailand: Home of Everything Exotic

    As soon as we have completed the previous trip, I'm ready to start on the second of a total of three trips to the magic kingdom of Thailand this year....

    Are you ready, and willing to join me for another trip?

    This time, we fly in the very best of styles.... Thai Airways Boeing 777-2D7(ER) ---- (ER betyr vel "Extended Range"?) HS-TJS: Phra Nakorn...

        Time to head to Thailand again - do you all have your passports ready, and tickets in hand?

        Oh, never mind the tickets - this is a ticket-less trip for all members of CVF.

        As soon as I arrived in Bangkok, it was time to try out-do the resident queen of hotel photography.... but failed at the attmpt...

          Oh, forgot to mention the name of the hotel..... Centara Watergate Hotel at Pratunam..... ("pratu" means door/gate, and "nam" means water ---- hence the watergate name).

          This is a highly recommended, and brand new hotel.... the ambiance and level of service was satisfactory. I even made a new best friend, one of the bellboys was a fantastic asset to the hotel, and we hit it off right away.

          A little artistic....

            Thanks to really helpful friends, a photo-club and a wonderful camera-shop, I replaced my camera, my EOS 5D Mark 2 with a brand new Mark 3.

            First test-image.....: how many keep their first image taken with a new camera?

                Time on this second of a total of three trips to Thailand in 2013, was also fully packed with appointments and engagements.... and a whole lot more time to meet and greet friends.

                    …I'd have to contradict you were it not for that smiley, which I translate as "succeeded hehehe" !
                    This room and your "white style" were made for each other. Timely inspiration for me too with some hotel stays coming soon.

                    I note the feet photo is censored , but never mind, I enjoyed what followed – which bears a striking resemblance to your avatar ! 55555

                      Dear Lady C,

                      Thank you very much for your kind comments. I didn't even think my that my avatar and that white poop-stepping-pee(pshow figure was of the same family....

                      Even though the Mark3 is basically the same camera as the Mark2, it felt like a brand new camera with a new world of settings to get used to.

                      After doing the first shots, I suddenly realized I need to find the way to continue shooting only in RAW format.

                      Here are a few more shots from the brand new hotel.... Centara Watergate Hotel at Pratunam. I really loved this place!

                        The only thing this hotel actually lacks, is a swimming pool... but these cabanas was wonderful at night!

                              One thing I really wanted to do, was to visit the roof of Baiyoke Sky, but the day I chose to do so, was perhaps not the perfect day for a photoshoot...



                              Perhaps the tuk tuk in Bangkok at the very highest elevation, on the 75th floor of the Baiyoke Sky:
