Travel Diary. Phuket, Thailand. Part One

I have always had a love of the tropical, Asia and of travel so when it came time for picking our honeymoon destination (which – yes – was over a year ago), naturally my choice was Phuket, Thailand. Being the adventurers we are, without hesitation we made our way to the south of the island and up to the mainland. Places like Phuket Town, Karon Beach, Patong, Phi Phi Islands, Phang Gna Bay and Laem Singh Beach were some of the places we made an effort to stop off at. A few highlights of the trip were paying $3 for the best Seafood Pad Thai we have ever had in our lives from a vendor off the street in Patong, striking a deal with a local muslim fisherman to give us a ride in his long-tailed boat, also known as a Ruea Hang Yao, and snorkeling in the most gorgeous see-through azure waters that can’t be beat.

I am happy to announce that, as promised (though long over due), here is Part 1/2 of my Phuket, Thailand photograph series. Editing these was a slightly rewarding and testing journey. I have spent much time editing these pictures and then starting all over again…kind of like making a canvas painting, then painting over it with new acrylic multiple times…until finally they were just right for the story I wanted to tell. Photography is a never ending journey of exploration, depth and feeling and that is what I love so much about it. All of these photos were taken before I ever had any fancy  lenses (the best one in my possession was dropped in France!). A measley 10d, stock lens and 12-24mm wide angle with a horrible f-stop. I regret I did not have anything better to capture the places I will probably never visit again in my life, but so rewarded that these were a product of my ‘humble’ beginnings. Happy photo looking!
