(This is my second attempt at posting this. If you came by earlier and saw a blank post, I am sorry. I have no idea what happened!)

Thursday has arrived, and it’s time for TRAVEL PHOTO THURSDAY. I will be leaving Chiang Mai soon, so next weeks Travel Photo Thursday will be posted from my desk in Daejeon. I’m sure it’s not as sunny and warm as Chiang Mai, so it will be back to woolies and thermals next week!

To join in the fun simply post a photo on your blog. Return here and place your link in the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post. Please remember to leave a comment after you link. Finally, if you have a few moments, visit the others who have linked. Perhaps you can give them a tweet, a stumble, or a comment on their TRAVEL PHOTO THURSDAY.

If you do tweet a shot, please use the hashtag #tpThursday.

This week I had the pleasure of joining Dave Hagerman on a photo walk in Myung Mai Market here in Chiang Mai. We were standing and admiring the beautiful light being cast through this umbrella when this shadow appeared and a wonderful photo opportunity presented itself.

Shadows and Light

I was very excited to have the opportunity to join Dave on a photo walk. I was not disappointed. Dave knows how to use light to his advantage, and he is an excellent teacher. I came away from our walk with a few good photos, and perhaps more importantly, some great tips, tricks, and advice from an excellent photographer.

Thank you Dave!

You can seen Dave’s work here…

  1. I love the colours in your photo. It is amazing how one element ie the shadow can make such a big difference to the photo composition turning it into something beautiful rather than ordinary.

    I did visit a few times and ran into problems earlier on this post but, finally got through. I’m rying to stay outta deep kimchi with ya !
