Hotdog for Lunch, the Rave in Thailand

Mar 17, 2011 | Portraits & People, Travel & Culture

It’s lunch time at Grandma’s house and Bah is eagerly waiting to eat her hotdog and rice. The kids here in Thailand love processed meat like hotdogs… and no they don’t eat it on a bun. Here in Thailand the preferred method of eating hotdogs is on a stick with sweet and sour sauce. But today for lunch Grandma is serving them in a bowl with rice.

This is another single exposure HDR image processed using Photomatix and finalized using Captain Kimo’s new Photoshop Action, which is still under development. I think I got a good feel for this action but I’m going to process a few more photos before I can give it Captain Kimo’s seal of approval.
