Hua Hin Centara Grand Beach Resort Night Pictures in Thailand

From a modest fishing village, Hua Hin became a famous beach resort thanks to the railway which was opened in 1911.

The Railway Hotel was build in 1922 by Mr. A. Rigazai, the State Railways’ Italian architect. The hotel had 14 bedrooms, a lobby lounge, bar, restaurant, billiards room, wine storeroom and large verandas. More guest rooms and restaurants were added through the years.

Parts of the famous film “The Killing Fields” (1983) were shot in this hotel which was supposed to be Le Royal Hotel in Phnom Penh.

In 1988, the hotel was purchased by Accor and became the Hotel Sofitel.

It became the Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Hua Hin in 2014. This 5 stars luxury hotel is a member of the Leading Hotels of the World.

I shot this pictures with a Sony A7R2, Sony G lens 24-70F2.8, the tripod Manfrotto 190 (Markins ballhead) and the Sony infrared remote RMT-DSLR2. The exposure time goes from 30 to 96 seconds (bulb mode). aperture from F11 to F22. ISO 100 for all the pictures. Light editing in Lightroom from Adobe.

Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, Buddhist Temple in Chiang Mai Thailand

Wat Phra That Doi Suthep is a sacred and revered temple, 15 km from Chiang Mai, Thailand.
The altitude of 1600 meters above sea level offers beautiful views of the city.
During the Sukhothai Kingdom, the monk Sumanathera found a relic of the Buddha, a shoulder bone, which had magical powers.
In 1368, the monk brought the relic in Lamphun to King Nu Naone of Lan Na. The relic broke in 2 pieces. The small one was enshrined at a temple in Suandok.
The other part was placed on the back of a white elephant. The elephant when on top of a mountain and died here after trumpeted three times. This was interpreted as a good omen and King Nu Naone ordered the construction of Wat Phra Tat at this place.

Vintage cars Citroen 2 CV in Paris at Notre Dame Cathedral

I was walking around l’Ile-Saint-Louis in Paris, coming from Notre-Dame Cathedral when I saw this amazing procession of vintage Citroen 2 CV. This car is an emblem, a mythical vehicule that french people love and represent a period of our history. It is no longer produced, some collectors still drive them, and apparently you can rent them from this company, Paris Authentic. This day a group of tourists were enjoying a ride in Paris with these beautiful cars which seemed to be in a good shape and well maintained. I’m glad to see that this company is carrying on our tradition and maintaining our cultural heritage in this field.

I shot these pictures with a Sony A7R2 and a Sony G lens FE2470mmF2.8GM, edited in Lightroom.
