In addition to the heat and bright sun, we had a few other challenges. On Friday, my car wouldn't start, so Tim had it taken to the shop. I took Tim's car, which was fine, except my tripod, reflectors and knee pads were in the other car. (Despite what you hear, the knee pads are not so that I can beg my subjects to smile or pose, they just make kneeling a lot easier). I had my old tripod, but it isn't as sturdy, particularly with my camera, battery pack, and a heavier lens.
At one point I was setting up the camera, and Sine was about ten feet away leaning against the wall for a shot. There was a Thai man and his son speaking. I heard the son say something, but really didn't pay attention. Then I heard the father say in Thai that "he's taking a photo of his girlfriend." I just laughed, as did Sine when I told her. I am seriously thinking of getting her and I matching tee-shirts that read in Thai "Mai Fan ----> " (not my girlfriend/boyfriend).
