I was not meant to document Stilgherrian’s first journey outside Australia but while looking through the Thailand trip archives, it was interesting enough to publish pictures of him in different back drops new to him. The trip was also my first visit back to my homeland in six years. So I needed time for my own and he joined me later. Admittedly, ten days in the Kingdom was surely not enough and I never stopped moving. The result was an extremely intense holiday for him. However, he gave very unique observations on Bangkok different from most tourists or even locals would consider.
I have been interested in high dynamic range (HDR) image for sometime but never got a chance to make it until Stilgherrian’s Birthday. I am pleased with image even though the print turned out to be darker than the original and lost the subtle details. 15 minute-turn-around time from Speedi Lab, Newtown is a trade-off some quality control.
