What happens when you search through old caches of photos, I liked these photos and this shoot, I wanted to post them.

An old graduation/senior photo shoot for a friend back at Oregon State.  Because of her major, and her work, she spent a lot of time in the OSU Women’s Building so we took a lot of shots in front of it.  An important building for her, and one of the older more beautiful buildings on campus.

I miss shooting on OSU’s beautiful campus.

Kanchanaburi, Thailand

So, Kanchanaburi, Thailand.  We spent a weekend in this provence with some friends, it was the first time going back there since our OEG orientation.  The hostel we stayed at was a really nice, awesome little set of bungalows on stilts in a marsh… perfect setting.  The town of Kanchanaburi its self has an awesome feel; a small, laid back little town, that relies on tourism, but stills feels a bit like it’s off the beaten path.  A beautiful place either way.  The one full day we had, we rented motorbikes and drove about 50km north in the provence to Erawan Falls, pretty beautiful falls.  They were huge.  Plus it was freakin hot and the water felt awesome.

In an effort to continue my portraits of Thai people, I tried to slip a few ‘faces’ into this one… View full post »

These two photos are from a recent trip to Hua Hin (again).

Okay I have to say as a side note, the reason why we (my girlfriend and I) have been making so many trips down to Hua Hin – and as a result why all my photos as of late have been from there – is because we are being offered a job at a new teaching position down there (also I keep saying down there because it’s south from us, and about a 5-6 hour journey from the town that we currently live in).  So needless to say we’ve been journeying down yonder in order to hash out and finalize this job situation, and to find  place to live down there, and just to hang out with friends cause we like it there (duh, we’re moving there).  It’s an awesome, quiet, sleepy little beach town that’s a blast to hang out in.  And you can actually find stuff to do pretty readily available, unlike our current town, there’s some stuff here you just got to search a bit harder to find it.  But I think in the long run I’m going to be much happier with the teaching position, and feel more at home in Hua Hin.

Muay Thai

These photos are from a combination of two different nights and four different muay thai matches during two different weekends down in Hua Hin.

The first of which being two 11-year-old kids fighting each other.  The second is two random Thai fighters I didn’t know, but they had a really good fight.  The last two fights pictured – basically the reason we went to the matches in the first place – are of our friend Meow (black shorts).  Apparently Meow doesn’t fight much anymore (he’s considered old for muay thai), but he’s a goog trainer, so it’s exciting to watch his matches.  All the of the fighters do this traditional dance before they fight, which is apparently supposed to be the perfect warm-up/stretch for the activity they’re about to partake in (wailing on each other).

Left, is one of the 11-year-old boys doing his warm-up just before the match.

Yeah Nick, the first time I was kids fight was in Hua Hin. I agree, very intense, crazy to see such little guys beating on each other so viciously.
