Remembering a summer wave…

Atlantic waves headed for our Amelia Island shores. Mid day sun turns the clear water into foaming brilliance. Fujifilm XP100.

Wishing for the return of summer on this winter day. ^.^

Wat Phra Kaew – Bangkok 1978

Give me lots of nearly cloudless blue sky, my Canon FD 24mm wide angle lens and some fresh Kodak Kodachrome 25 and I’m a happy guy!

This is just a few images from my port visit to Pattaya Beach, Thailand in December of 1978. I managed a couple of off days to make the crazy (back then) trip to Bangkok.

My “follow me everywhere” Canon F-1 (1978 version) loaded with Kodachrome 25 and my FD 24mm f/ 2.8 lens captured these images at Wat Phra Kaew in central Bangkok.

This guy always makes me smile.

Nothing like turning your 24mm lens for a tall vertical shot. The Kodachrome and Canon lens captured every detail.

Almost 40 year old Kodachrome. Still as brilliant as ever!

The F-1 metered this shot perfectly.

Gotta have at least one silhouette in the mix.

An amazing country to visit. The colors of everything just popped! Mid December sun angles were never a problem. Bright blue skies helped with capturing the details as I was able to stick with ASA 25 even when hand holding my FD 80-200mm lens.

Thanks for your visit!
