Scenes of Pattaya.

Recommended Posts

Those of you who know me know that I’m am seldom, if ever, without my trusty camera by my side.  This is not a trip report as such but a collection of some scenes I encounter on my trips around the area.  

I got into town last Thursday and was greeted in the late afternoon by a serious downpour, welcome back.

I had seen Geoff Carter’s  video about the development of the beach and was curious to see it myself. They have completed the section from Pattaya Klang to the north end,  so the place finally has some sort of beach.

And of course there is the daily sunset to capture, plenty more to come folks.

One of my great pleasures in Pattaya is a wander out along the coast to Naklua, and Wongamat beach.  As you go further north it gets quieter and quieter until it’s just you and your thoughts, watching the sea, with the Sanctuary of Truth looming in the distance.  Yesterday I was fortunate to have the company of Foggy and Redrock for my regular afternoon’s exercise.  

I have to credit this photo to Foggy, as he drew my attention to the crashing waves and how they would add a foreground subject to this familiar view.  On the way back to Soi 18 where Foggy has parked his Jeep, we were all a bit parched.  There are a lot of high end  resorts out that way, with relaxing beach front bars.  We figured we’d splash the cash and grab a drink in one of them, when suddenly we clocked a small stall with a sign for 50 Baht smoothies.  That will do nicely.  

Plenty more days like this ahead.....magic.

Great shots, BB, as always.

 Cheers Cobber, I have been looking forward so much to giving the camera a good run out when I am here.  Been playing around with the various colour setting that are particular to Fuji.  The light here is a great help also.

Excellent brother BB, looking forward to more of the same, and even more looking forward to joining you on one or two of your strolls in a few weeks.

Just a thought, perhaps you could get the old "Name That Shot" off the ground again?:sign0184:

There is plenty of strolling to be done young man, looking forward to it.  I’ll lash some photos up that other thread also and see where it goes.

Paid my first visit of this trip to Dongtan beach in Jomtien yesterday, and boy has there been a facelift since my last time there almost 2 years ago.  This photo is just to the right of the police station.

Yeah, your photo captures the atmosphere at that area really well. Enjoyable spot to rest and be thankful.

Yes I’ve spent many a pleasant afternoon chilling out there and pondering the coming night.

Took an old saunter over Pratamnak Hill and down to Bali Hai yesterday afternoon.  For anyone wanting a view of metropolis then this is well worth the minor hike.

Took a stroll along Walking St last night on the way to meet some of the guys for Jimslim’s last night in town.  I usually tend to avoid WS, actually there is not much of a draw to the area these days come to think of it. But with camera in hand there is an added interest to the place, what can be a hassle of a walk becomes an study in human interaction and nightly life.

Just another lazy days on Dongtan beach.  Makes it all the better when I read of the dreadful weather at home recently.

Thanks for posting these snaps, BB. It's much appreciated.

If it makes even one guy feel like he is back here for a few moments then it’s worth it Seven.  I could spend a lifetime wandering the sois of this place and still find something interesting to shoot.

There was something on in Terminal 21 the other day, looked like maybe a fashion show coming up, but I didn’t have time to hang around and see.  There was a frantic mob trying to get photos of two guys, the other half didn't recognize them in the photo I showed her,  so they might be a recent sensation, she doesn’t keep up with Thai celebrities.

Been out along the coast to Naklua and Wongamat beach the past couple of days.  Always something going on to keep me and the camera entertained.

Some GGs enjoying their free afternoon.

This might well have been an Indian wedding ceremony in the Dusit Thanai Resort.
