Self Portrait Slime

Self Portrait Slime. When I started I gave myself two rules. The first was that I had to shoot and edit every one of the daily photo images. The second was that I would not post a self portrait.

Today I break my second rule. Queen Mab was up to her tricks and I woke early after a mere 5 hours of sleep. So I made the best of it by driving my scooter all around Chiang Mai trying to find some nice places to shoot, and an audio adapter made by Rode that apparently does not exist in all of Thailand.

I liked this image because it has both my reflection and my shadow, and of course because of the background of green slime.

I shot this image at the Southeast corner of the moat that borders the Old City in Chiang Mai. Last week was Songkran which had many people swimming in the moat water as well as dumping it on everyone. I got my fair share dumped on me.

The Red marker is where I took the shot. The Blue dot is where I live these days.

This is a single image shot on my Sony with my awesome Sony 35mm f/2.8 lens. So glad I bought this one. Processed in Lightroom to bring out the colour and texture, Photoshop to use the magic eraser on some floaties in the water, then in Macphun’s Noiseless CK to remove a good chunk of the noise.

Growing up one of my biggest dreams was to explore the world. Honestly I never thought this would become reality. But at the end of 2014 I quit my job as a project manager to do just that. I sold most everything I own, packed up the remaining boxes in storage, and set out to see the world. My goals while traveling are to meet people everywhere I go, work on becoming a better photographer, and attempt to stay where the weather is not freezing. Along the way I am posting photos at and writing about my experiences at
