Travelog: A Quiet Moment on the Gulf of Thailand

Photograph by Shannon Finney, Pran Buri, Thailand, 2008

During these hot August days, when the heat is unrelenting and oppressive,
it's nice to think of days spent on a beach, enjoying cool ocean breezes.
This is one of my favorite photographs. I shot it on location in Pran Buri,
about two and a half hours drive from Bangkok, Thailand. I remember
the quiet - just the water lapping up to the shore and the whisper of
the breeze through the gauze of the curtains separating the room from
the terrace. It was that whisper I wanted to capture, to freeze that
sound, or at least the idea of that sound.
