Driving from the local electrical company after paying the monthly bill, I notice this lady pushing a cart along the road. A everyday occurrence in Thailand for people to collect plastic bottles, beer, soda cans and other stuff that we throw in the trash can. Stopped the car jumped out and started to take pictures. As the lady got closer she saw that I was taking her picture, she smiled. She continued on her way down the road.
We are very lucky we don’t have to roam the streets collecting trash to make money. Just a thought!

Sunday morning at 6am, get up and out with the camera. The morning started off really well, drove around the area looking for a few pictures. Excellent, now into the town to capture a few street scenes. Parked the car and off we go.
Back to car and head off home for a nice cup of tea. Not so fast, the car door doesn’t open using the remote. So use key in the door, open the door and the alarm goes into operation. No one bats a eye, they just carry on with their business. After a while the alarm switches off. Tried the door again and off the alarm again. I ask the the local motor cycle taxi riders to help. Jump on the back of the bike to find a garage open. After riding around for a while we manage to find someone (it is Sunday). The guy takes out the alarm and the car is OK to drive.
Well these things are sent to try us, but I captured a good few pictures. So in the end all is well.
After watching a youtube film on photo effects, I decided to try it out. Using my kit lens on a slowish speed, then turning the ring fast I managed to gain the effects shown.
Returning to our hotel room, I noticed this reptile on the door of the next room.
