Analogue Adventures – Orient Escapade 1982 – Bangkok

All photos taken on May 11, 1982.

Up early again this morning. Looking out of our hotel room window, we could see it would be another hot and hazy day. Pat was starting to react to the heat, strong sun and smog and did her best to cover up against the sun’s rays.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. I am sure of that. A lot can change in 40 years. All of the photos on that day were amazing. I just wish digital had been invented then or that I had been better at using my SLR. Thanks for reading. Allan

  1. Great to revisit The Grand Palace through your lens. Somehow, I’m guessing it waaaay less crowded than on the day I went in the spring of 2015. Loved the complex, hated the mass of antisocial bodies. Jay and Bonnie Diamond are a hoot.
