Night Photos, Part 4: Familiar River Sights
Well, here's a first for Bao-Bao's Blog: a guest photographer. My best friend finally agreed to venture off of the North American continent and accompany me on one of my trips to Thailand. I guess he'd fallen for the "I know my way around - what could possibly happen?" routine, the fool! Anyway, he had a great time (as I knew he would) and it was fun to re-visit some familiar spots to see them with him.
We took a dinner cruise on the Chao Phraya river one night and he got a few nice photos along the way. I say "a few" because these three were all I could salvage from the 30 or so he took, the rest all fell victim to a case of the incurable blurs. From experience I can assure you simple digital cameras like we use require a lot more stability for the exposures needed than a moving vessel on the water can provide.
Nevertheless, these three are worth featuring today, so here they are - with his permission.
