Fall in Georgia I

Notes: I hope everyone is taking advantage of what might be the best season, Fall.  It doesn’t last long here in Georgia, since as I write this, the colder temperatures and wind is tattering what is left of the colorful trees.  When I was younger in college I used to drive around after classes just […]

Buddha Bucha Temple – June 15, 2014

A really hot June Sunday at the Thai Temple in Decatur, with a gathering of 100+ monks for a rare ceremony, the consecration of the ubosot, and the burial of the 9 boundary stones. It was a full weekend, with Thai Classical dancing, alms giving, and free food for all prepared by many volunteers from Buddhist temples ranging from Ohio to Florida. Photos and Event Coverage by Boon Vong.

Meet Me on the Equinox Meet Me Halfway

For right now I really can’t travel to far off exotic places.  I’ll just have to find interesting places around town.  While I can’t truly cry foul that I don’t have the means to just jump on a plane and go somewhere, it’s still a grand privilege to be able to drive around wasting gas just to take some pictures and think about things.

Lao New Year 2555

I often wonder if all of my Lao New Year photos are actually doing more harm than good.  Because I don’t necessarily post images of what truly happens, when outsiders go to the temple/community center/fairgrounds, they might be in for a shock.  There are many things in the Lao community that I don’t agree with, […]

Slider Practice Video

Tech Notes: Thanks to Van and Anister for helping, and of course Vy for playing. :0)  These are some random video clips of me practicing with the DIY slider.  I’m going to stop using the word “tests” for certain gear related things, because these are basically the times when I practice with my various tools.

H&H (+ 1): Pre Wedding

Notes: Lucked out and the weather was great.  Didn’t have to go far (well not counting the drive to Statesboro from ATL), except to the Botanical Garden and Downtown.  The golden light that illuminated everything in pastels was a million times better than any electric cathode LED contraption out there.  That’s why it’s so valuable […]

Nikon J1 Color

The little Nikon J1 has some really vibrant color. Combined with excellent metering, this camera shines in good natural light.

Location Scouting: Suwanee in the Autumn

Landscapes around town, with a Nikon J1 and Fuji X100.  Great lightweight cameras for walking around, and any imaging device can get pretty pictures if the light is right.  All these photos taken early in the morning and brisk, about 36 degrees.  The little J1’s high image quality doesn’t surprise me at all.  Too many […]

Location Scouting: Railway Museum

Indian Food: Vegetables and Tamarind Sauce, Nan, and Curry: ★★★★☆ Notes: Second trip to the Southeastern Railway Museum.  They love photographers or visitors in general so highly recommended for anyone interested in colors, urban decay, and a trip through time.  Why modern day life isn’t as colorful I don’t know.  Great place for both Lookbook […]
