Oyster Fishing in Koh Samui

Updated Sony Review!

I added a few new photos to the Sony A7r Mark 3 Review. And yes, there is still a hidden Google Pixel 2 photo in there. Can you find it?

Hey Gents!

While in Koh Samui, we met the two gentlemen that run the “Hey Gents” magazine. It was so fun to get to know them and hang out. We went out on yachts, partied on the beach, you name it! Really fun guys… actually right now they are putting together a little video that I can share with you. In the meantime, here is the article they just released about our time there together.

Daily Photo – Oyster Fishing in Koh Samui

And speaking of Koh Samui, one evening we went to the other side of the island where the fishing boats come in. That part was pretty interesting, but I was drawn a bit away to these oyster farmers. I waded into the water with them to follow their movements. They would make little “clicking/rubbing” sounds with their fingers to get the oysters to make themselves seen in the sand below. I don't know why that worked, but it does!

Stepping Stones in Koh Samui

Baby Burner

My friend (and awesome aviation photographer!) Jessica Ambats came to her first Burning Man this year. I only got to see her once at the photo walk, and she was happy to have her baby there. I always think it’s awesome and brave for people to bring their kids to the Burn. She just sent me this cute video she made while there.

Daily Photo – Stepping Stones in Koh Samui

This beautiful little spot in Koh Samui is a serene location to watch the sunset. Anyone can go here and have drinks to watch the sunset, and you don't have to be a guest of the Ritz-Carlton. They actually do set up little drinking tables on these stepping stones, but no one was out there, so I quickly removed them so they wouldn't get in the way of the shot!

Kayaking at the Bond Island

A Video Art Tour from Aro-Ha

You all may know that I have been out to the yoga retreat called Aro-Ha here in New Zealand a few times. I love it there! Well, the gentleman that owns it is one of my art collectors and he decided to put a few pieces up there. Enjoy this little tour as I show you around a bit!

Daily Photo – Kayaking at the Bond Island

This isn't actually the famous James Bond island from Thailand, but just another miscellaneous one off the coast of Koh Samui. Can you see a face in it? I definitely saw it in there the whole time. I love seeing these islands with this strange, undercut limestone shape. I wonder what it looks like when an island like this tips over into the ocean. It must make a tremendous crash and set of waves… I'd love to see that some time!
