floating away

Snaps from a day at Amphawa floating market with my friend Scott. A short van ride from Bangkok, I really only wanted to go here because of the temple nearby. A banyan tree has grown around it, encasing it in a thick, entangled maze of tree trunk and leaves. Absolutely gorgeous. Loves his grilled chicken. … More floating away

khao yai redux

I met Hack at one of my favorite art galleries in Chinatown, Cho Why. His photos were being displayed during a presentation on Thailand wildlife, and I recognized Khao Yai in his photographs immediately. After the presentation, I spoke with the owner of the gallery, my friend Nick, and I was just gushing about Khao … More khao yai redux

city of angels

My plan was never to live in Bangkok. I didn’t know much when I made the move to Thailand – I hadn’t even cracked open a guidebook. All I knew is that I had a friend I could stay with in Bangkok as I got settled and I could find a job teaching. What I knew of Chiang … More city of angels

i went to khao yai and all i got were these leech bites

Anyone who knows me is well aware of my obsession with hiking and trail running and all things outdoors. This may make my decision to live in the big city seem pretty silly, but Thailand is full of national parks so it’s not hard to catch a ride to a neighboring jungle. Khao Yai was … More i went to khao yai and all i got were these leech bites

cheese break

I met Angel on holiday in Koh Lipe, but I didn’t find out about his business venture until after returning to Bangkok. He owns a food truck (or food tuk-tuk, rather) called CheeseBreak with his friend Jeremy. They serve things like Philly cheesesteaks and mac’n’cheese, but I’m primarily concerned simply with the fact that those … More cheese break

snapshots

A little photographic insight into my Bangkok life. Scott and I recorded music one night. No photographic evidence of my instrument: the melodica, a keyboard you have to blow into a tube to play… Mojitos on a rooftop at an art show in the “cool, hipster” district John boy. HUGE sugared donuts for 10 baht. … More snapshots

wat arun

Finally guilt-tripped Scott into going to a temple with me. We chose Wat Arun, a Buddhist temple situated along the Thonburi side of the Chao Phraya river. Wat Arun, also known as the Temple of the Dawn, has incredible mosaic work. Built to represent Mount Meru, the center of the world in Buddhist cosmology, the temple … More wat arun

city breaks

Since arriving in Bangkok, I’ve been shooting primarily with my film camera and my iPhone. My DSLR is just so heavy with all the walking and motorbiking we do. The first time I took my DSLR out with me was during a midday work break to Chatuchak park. I wanted to try riding the BTS … More city breaks
