The Squid Boat

Waking up early for photos

You’ll see in the story below that I never actually got a photo of that amazing boat at night. I could have, if I wasn’t so lazy and wanted to see them come into port at 5 AM, but, honestly, I was way too lazy. That bed just feels so darned good. A comfy bed in the morning is my kryptonite.

Daily Photo – The Squid Boat

One thing you may notice from this photo are the huge lightbulbs. I've never seen such huge bulbs on a boat. But, apparently (and I did not see this), they light these boats up at night and the squid come flocking. This makes them very easy to catch! Maybe next time I go I'll be able to see these guys in action… I think that would be an amazing photo – it's on my to-photo list! :)

In Bang Saray at Karma Studios

Amazing time at Karma Sound Studios

When I was recently in Thailand, I spent the week staying at Karma Sound Studios. It was really incredible and fun! What an amazing place for people to collaborate and make some great music. I met all kinds of famous Thai musicians there… it was a really kinda strange and awesome week!

Daily Photo – Down on the Pier at Sunset

This is just a short walk from the studio. The sunsets in Thailand were amazing all week. I don't know if they are always that good, but maybe! I don't think I've been in a place where I had good sunsets for an entire week. Maybe in the Caribbean? Anyway, this place was really special because of all the squid boats. I'll show you some cool shots of those as soon as I get around to processing them! :)

The Ancient Jungle

Found using Stuck On Earth!

You might recall this place from my recent Stuck On Earth video where I show how I discovered this spot!

Daily Photo – The Ancient Jungle

Here's an amazing place I found somewhere near Bang Saray, Thailand. It was a VERY STRANGE place, actually. Everything was both authentic and fake in the sense that you get the feeling it was all built for people to visit rather than practical use. There were other parts of this place I did not photograph. Most of them involved having hundreds of fake strange animals in various poses. Imagine 100 lemurs doing strange things on rocks, and you can begin to get the idea. I feel like telling you that kind of ruins this photo, but, oh well… Actually, I can tell this place was not designed by any photographers because getting a good angle on anything was almost impossible. This is honestly the ONLY good angle in this area of strangeness.
