    A pleasant Tuesday afternoon w/ CMn

    Tuesday afternoon I meet up w/ CMn near downtown Chiang Mai, to go out & see where his NEW house is being built & to ride our bikes up to Wat Doi Saket.

    While I was waiting for him I took a picture of a adorable little boy & a dead rat:








    After a 25 minute ride, we arrived @ his NEW house. Here's a picture of my NEW hog resting in front of his place:



    Here's a couple of pictures of his house being constructed, it's looking GREAT!





    He has a sweet old neighbor, I don't know her name:



    After having some wonderful food @ a German restaurant w/ his lovely wife, we headed up to Wat Doi Saket:



    As you can tell it was drizzling a little bit:





    CMn taking an action shot:



    Finally the sun came out & the rest of the day was dry:



    A resident monk was doing some work around the temple:





    The temple was pretty vacant, so it was very peaceful. It was a good time, I would love to visit there again.

    CMn, post some of those wonderful pictures you were snapping!

    Nice pic - It must be the first Thai sidecar built out of tube with a decent mudguard ! Nice kid - must be a bit of a terror though if they have to padlock him in !

    Sidecar wheel seems a bit far back though - Bet its a handfull on right hand bends !


    The pics of North Thailand that appear on the TD are getting me seriously thinking of going up there to have a look myself. ( from Phuket )

    Any ideas on how to get my bike up there - and I am not considering riding it all the way ( Air Blade)

    Train - truck or whatever ???

    I think my picture pops more because of the camera. Also I like to crush the shadows & open up the highlights in photoshop, for example:

    before:


    after:


    I also applied a sharpen filter.

    Terrific photos, thank you.

    Tutorial would be fantastic, can't believe how easily you touched up that leaf. What a difference

    Agreed. I like Busak's original leaf but i'm very impressed how he tarted up CMN's snapshot. Wow!
