Tigers – a depleting resource

Here’s a picture I’ve never shared before. This particular spot is now not available for Tiger shoots. They decided to not have water in the exhibit and to cover it in so we cannot shoot.

So sad, this was a favourite spot for us. But that’s Thailand, it often happens….. But something else will pop up one day.. 🙂

I like to use “selective saturation” techniques to accentuate the Tiger in focus, and to give the action some spice. These young males really liked to run and fight and run again….. We really miss this place!!

    Too good to not share, Rob.

    Its a pity the place doesn’t see the value they get when others take and show shots like this.ReplyCancel

2006 – MIlitary Coup Thailand – outside our house

It’s 2006 and Thailand is in a grip of one of its famous Military Coups!
Our House in Bangkok is right next to a Military base.
We felt so Protected.
This was one of many such vehicles outside showing it’s muscles.

Further down the highway were some serious looking tanks parked smack in the middle of the road.

Thailand… oh Thailand.

    You say you felt so safe, but it must have been tinged with a bit of nervousness as well. This looks a bit chaotic, but people still seem to be going about their normal business. You were lucky to get this picture and come off unscathed.ReplyCancel

The View from the Temple – Zhongdian 2008

As we wandered down the hill to where the car was parked, the views were stunning and the smells and sounds were all encompassing.
People go about their business not worried about us at all.
It’s a whole community that seems to revolve arond this massive Monastery.
Memories……

Side Alley – Yunnan 2008

Often, the best places to photograph are not where we usually look. Look up, look down, look around…..
In this instance, the “up” was the interesting view…..
I think it came out well.

    Great shot, but it gives me a really weird feeling. Like I should be breaking my neck looking up, but I’m not. Very strange, swimmy, almost like vertigo! Bet thats not the effect you were aiming for, LOL.ReplyCancel
