Blame it on the food
The plan for this evening was to have a meal and then take a wander with the GX1 and Olympus 75mm, a combination I have yet to try out after dark.
The plan rather fell apart when I chose to eat at what must be one of the best Thai restaurants in Pattaya. The food is reasonable and the taste is just superb. It’s a well-kept secret, but one that is becoming increasingly well-known, so you can wait a while to eat, provided you can find a seat. But there was a spare table for me and the usual prompt service in terms of delivering me a cold beer and a menu. Order placed, I prepared to wait.
Forty minutes later I still had not eaten and vowed I really wouldn’t come again unless they are quiet. Forty five minutes later and my food had arrived and I decided I would like to eat there every evening and never mind the waiting; it’s worth it.
No, I am not telling you where it is, but it might make for a good place to eat at the great Grant/Spanky/Spike get-together. Given the prices, I might even offer to pay.
Unfortunately, once I had finished eating, I realised it was less than an hour before the car park closed. Given the limited time available, I was not going to bother with taking any photos; but in the end I had a little walk.
All the below were taken within half an hour with the GX1 and Olympus 75mm at F1.8 in varying levels of darkness, ISO up to 3200. Black & white are JPEGs produced by the camera, colour shots are from RAW. Spent less time processing them than I did taking them, want to get this post done so I can finish it before she who must be obeyed returns from work and needs a cuddle.
