Shooting the cat is tough, because she either won't stay still long enough for the autofocus to grab a shot, or she gets curious and comes closer (too close) to see what's going on. However, out of about 50 shots of her I did get one that was decent. She has lovely eyes.
The second shot is her favorite scratching toy: the broom. Evan and I were delighted when she switched to it and away from the couches. As far as I'm concerned, she can do whatever she wants to the broom. I'll even buy her another.
We all have to go home sometime. So, after only one night we too had to leave the island. To make ourselves feel a little better, we decided a souvenir was in order. And what better souvenir than one that you carry with you, one that becomes a part of you, so to speak?
We got pedicures. Very good ones. On the beach, in the shade of a lovely tree. Are you green with envy yet?
Anyway, now you've seen my toes - an honor which you probably never expected to receive. At least they're pretty clean looking.
I decided I liked this high key black and white rendition of them the best, but if you're curious, I chose clear nail polish. I don't own any nail polish remover, and I don't want to buy any, so my toes have to continue looking presentable during all stages of the chipping of the polish.
Took a weekend trip to Koh Samet this weekend, an island a few hours away from Bangkok. Evan was sick and couldn't make it; he'll come next time. It was really nice, and a good break from working during the week.
Took quite a few pictures on Saturday and couldn't choose my favorite. A good photographer knows how to edit down to their best work; I am not at that level yet, so I'm posting three. One a shot of some footprints about to be erased by a wave, one a handheld long exposure of a fire dancer, and one glass of beer. Enjoy.
It's hard to find Mexican food in Thailand. A couple of months ago, I would have said impossible, but we have found one decent Mexican place in Bangkok, and I had enchiladas on one of the islands, so, if not impossible just very, very hard.
Anyway, we found some on Friday night, and some passionfruit margaritas too!
We went bowling Thursday night. Bowling is not one of my talents; the best thing I came away with was this picture. Not really sure how to set one's white balance for blacklight.
