It all started when I was about 8 when my brother received a camera as a present. It fascinated me, and a year later, I won a basic camera for holiday work at school. The virus was inoculated.
I had my first SLR 18 years ago, went staight for the darkroom at Uni but decided that staying up all nights was not a good idea so I restricted myself to only taking photos after a while. I quickly jumped on the digital bandwagon and loved it straight away..

    Ah, so jealous, great pic! I took some like this at Wat Prakaew and wasn’t happy with how any turned out. This is perfect though. Love the composition, cool tones and DOF – great stuff!

  • This is such a compliment :), lol!!
    I changed the tone from gold because to be honest, I was a bit sick of all the golden photos I have taken in Thailand’s temples….!!

    Great idea changing the tone. I know exactly what you mean!

  • Lol, after a whole afternoon surrounded by gold, you lose the notion that it’s beautiful and precious as you are blinded by the scorching sun and its reflection.. I suppose that the best time is just before they close the place or early….
