RPTE 32: Choo Choo!

Raddest Photo Trip Ever Day 12: Travel

We woke up bright and early to take a train from Kanchanaburi to Bangkok where we took tuk-tuks to a larger train station in Bangkok, Hua Lamphong, to take our train to the border of Thailand and Cambodia. The first train was easy. I walked around and sat in the caboose of the train. The second train ride was deadly.

As the train pulled into the station, crowds of people pushed and shoved, trying to predict where the doors of the train would end up. With the help of one of the vendors (who told me where the door would stop), I pushed my way on to the train with my suitcase and managed to snag seats for me and my lovely roommate, Erika. With all our luggage the whole group boarded the train and found seats. That vendor lady definitely played a part in finding seats...

I used these set of pictures as a test run of the Totally Rad Actions... specifically the "Get Faded (winter)" action, which I find myself drawn to. I use presets and actions to edit Junshien's pictures, but for my own pictures I rarely use actions/presets unless I use my resize/border/watermark action. So I was pretty stoked to use the TRA's.  (These pictures document the train ride from Bangkok to the Thai/Cambodia border.  Click on the images below for a larger view.)

This first picture I didn't use any actions or presets. I switched the picture to grayscale, then converted it back to RGB, then increase the orange. I like the result.

The rest of these images I only used "Get Faded (winter)", then did the rest of the editing myself. While this woman was awake, we exchanged a handful of "How do you do?!" smiles.

I like to takes pictures of my feet and where they've been... (Even though I strongly dislike my feet. I'm a walking contradiction, I know)

I really love this shot I snapped of Nick

I woke up just in time for the sunset.

We made it to our hotel. It was the cleanest, most modern hotel we stayed in. (All our other hotels were very charming, though)
