I have come up with a new technique, for me at least, that is giving me really great, hyped colour and texture in my photos. It suits Bangkok perfectly, and is the kind of look I was seeking, without knowing it. It is inspiring me to hit the streets and do a tonne of pics. Am I going to divulge how I am achieving this look...? No, I usually give away my secrets far too freely, so for the moment I am hanging on to this one.
Perhaps the most important treasure at the Grand Palace in Bangkok is the Emerald Buddha, housed in its own vast room for worship. Photography is forbidden, but the outside of the building is remarkable, as is the entire palace, in any case.
These photos are of the entrance into the Emerald Buddha temple.
I have recently being seeing patterns and repeated shapes in the (urban) landscape. Usually I capture them with my iPhone as that's all I have on me at that moment, but on rare occasions I have a camera handy, such as below.
These images were shot in Bangkok. On the left an architectural shot at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC), and on the right an ad for face whitening.
Below is a further shot of an exhibition space at BACC. I really enjoyed this work by a Polish artist, whose name i did not get a chance to note down.
There are more of my 'pattern' shots HERE.
