RPTE 43: Bangkok Boogy.

Raddest Photo Trip Ever Day 18: Bangkok

When we finally reached Bangkok, we took the subway to the Chatuchak Weekend Market and I grabbed this picture of some of the RPTE people. Dane was giving me the finger, but for the sake of innocent, virgin blog eyes, I photoshopped it out. :) But if you click the picture for a larger view and look real closely at the reflection in the background you can see Dane giving the finger. ha!

I think we were talking about the silk pocket incident. :)

Something green an pretty at the market.

Last but not least, Amy! Love ya!

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)

RPTE 18: Wat Pho!

Raddest Photo Trip Ever Day 5: Bangkok

Sorry this is out of order, but here are some more pictures from my fifth day in Thailand/Cambodia on the Raddest Photo Trip Ever. Erika suggested we'd head over to Wat Pho. Our main purpose was to see the Reclining Buddha. It's this huge statue that was made, then later monks made this huge building around it.

 

RPTE 17: Some Bangkok Lovin'

Raddest Photo Trip Ever Day 5: Bangkok

Bangkok was super awesome. Erika finally arrived and we met her to head out to the Grand Palace and Wat Pho where the reclining Buddha lived. amazing. So here's this Grand Palace.

The Grand Palace was really quite breathtaking, but quite overwhelming. It was burning hot that day, and out of respect we were wearing long pants and covering our shoulders. The heat was really was really well proportioned.
