Dave The Rave is a popular personality in Bangkok’s entertainment industry and runs his own informative blog which you can visit at www.davetheravebangkok.com.  I was very pleased to find my mailbox chock full of great pictures from Dave today.  These are fun pictures almost anyone can expect to capture with a point and shoot compact camera and more than a bit of knowledge of the Bangkok area.  Looking at the pictures I decided to run Dave’s submissions as an outing section vs. a reader's submission.  Why?  First, because they’re interesting pictures and second because the narrative encourages others to get out there and have fun taking pictures.  There is no message more important in this column than having fun with your camera and getting out there and enjoying Thailand!

These images were taken with a Sony Cyber-shot DSC (Digital Still Camera) W170. I purchased it in England last August whilst visiting my family. It is classed as a compact camera. What is surprising about this 'little' compact camera, is that it records images at 10.1 megapixels. Other features include a 5 x optical zoom, 28 mm wide-angle lens and a 'super steady shot' feature. All in all, it's a great compact camera. The advantage of these compact cameras, is that you can whip it out of your pocket and capture an image on the spot. Like a gunfighter, you can draw that baby from your hip pocket, shoot your target and leave the other guys to bite the dust!  

 

Wat's Up - Thai Temple Tour (Submitted By Dave The Rave)

I have lived in Bangkok for over 10 years and do not share the opinion with some people that Bangkok is boring. If you are bored of Bangkok, then you must be bored of all cities. This vast, sprawling metropolis never ceases to fascinate me. There is so much to do and see 24 hours a day. Similar to New York, "The City of Angels" never sleeps. It might surprise some people that one of my favourite hobbies is photography. I can be seen taking photos in Bangkok at all hours of the day and night. Why is that? Because there are endless photographic opportunities in Thailand.

I entitled this submission "Wat's Up" because it encapsulates all things associated with Thai temples. (For your info "wat" means temple in Thai). With a little play on words "Wat's Up" is a visual introduction to a selection of 'what is wat' if you catch my drift.
