Omg Thailand travel photography. What a massive travel adventure.
Crack of dawn on Monday 1st August, The Mr and The Smalls waved me off at the airport, and the following day I landed in destination number one. Ify and Max (my reason for travelling) were to have their wedding on Phi Phi Island at the end of week, but since Qatar Airways messed up my flights, I ended up being in Phuket day earlier than planned. I wouldn’t have minded had the weather not totally sucked, meaning that any Phuket travel photography was a bit restricted. Never mind – mainland Phuket was ace, as were the locals.
On Thursday I met up with the bride and groom to travel to destination number two – Phi Phi Island. It was fricking amazing. It was approximately 11 million degrees, the water was like a bath, and the vibrant colours everywhere were a photographers DREAM.
There were lots of cats, tons of food (those two facts are unrelated…), masses of motorbikes. Long tail boats, street food…ahhh man – just check out the photos. It’s only been two and a half weeks since I got back, and it already feels like an eternity ago. It took me about 30 hours to get home from Phi Phi Island – tractor, boat, ferry, taxi, airplane, airplane, car. I don’t even know how many miles.
All images shot on film (because spending hours in front of a computer, doing editing is not so appealing to me). MASSIVE thanks to Carmencita Film Lab for looking after my millions of rolls of film. Deets for geeks: Nikon F6, Pentax 645n. Ektar 100, Portra 400.
