It is quite calm on the boat ride to Full Moon Party in Haad Rin. It is the same route as I took in the morning but with the moonshine behind the cloud, reflecting the sea. It feels strange that this tranquillity will drop us off to the beats of chaos.
I always have mixed feelings about big parties. There were times I took photos of dance parties in Sydney I was not sure I was fond of them but got photos I really liked. They are bits and pieces of basic human nature I pick up from them.
I only work on the camera phone this time. The main challenge is to stay up all night to catch the dawn, the most photogenic scene. I have done so in a past assignment but this time with the sun rising in front of you.
I stick to an electronic music area, which is not too crowded and have some chats with other partygoers. I surprisingly enjoy myself at the party.
